PHD kicks off the conference previews with the Eastern Dakota Conference which is 11 deep so we will break it into two parts and then produce the Conference predictions and pre-season all EDC teams.  Basketball is not as far away as people know so we get you started with the October league previews.

Teams

Fargo Shanley

Returning Starters.  Shayne Dauenhauer (5-11, G, 12), Cameron Saville (6-1, 6, 10),

Returning Bench Players.   Kevin Wolfe (6-0, PF, 12)

New Talent.  Jacob Kava (6-2, PF, 10), Caleb Christman (6-2, PF, 10), Brandon Buisker (6-2, SF, 10)

Trending.  Same.

Final Thoughts. They were two games over .500 last year and with so many expected sophomores in the rotation they will lack experienced but the sophomore group is tough and good so they will be competitive but likely somewhat under the average marl.

Valley City

Returning Starters. Dalton Ondracek (6-1, G, 12), Levi Nix (6-4, PF, 11), Nate Rodriguez (5-10, SG, 11), Hunter Burchill (5-10, PG, 10)

Returning Bench Players. Ethan Zeltinger (6-1, SF, 12), Jordan Eggermont (6-1, SF, 12)

New Talent. Eli Allen (6-0, SF, 11), Drew Oberlander (6-2, PF, 11)

Trending.  Up, some

Final Thoughts. They won four games last year
