Overall Thoughts on Season:
Good season overall. Only lost to one team from Illinois (Mac Irvin Fire by 1). Seven players are getting serious looks from colleges and universities. Core of our team has been together since 5th grade. Our team is so unselfish. They play great team ball that carries over to their high schools.
Tyler Dancy- 6'6″ polished. Great post moves, footwork, good passer. Shoots well from the outside.
Marvin Bateman- 6'5″ wing man. Shot over 60% from 3pt range, lights out.
C.J. Coldon- 6' point guard. He runs the show. Averages a triple double. Great vision and can score (3pt, mid-range, get to the rim) when needed. Top PG in the St. Louis metropolitan area.
