Wahpeton wing Riley Breuer was a bright spot on a tough season in 16-17 and now he’s a senior ready for a better year as a team.
“This off-season I played at camps with my high school team and went to a summer league in Fargo,” Riley said. “My focus of improvement since the end of last season is my shot and getting stronger.”
Riley was third on his team in scoring and steals a year ago and returns along with now juniors Zach Manock and Joshua Darwin. The Huskies won only one game last year so there is only up to go from last season.
“The outlook of our team is that we are returning everyone but one senior from last year,” Breuer stated.
“My individual goal for this season is to have a better shot percentage than I had last season. My team goal is for us to make it to state.”
At 6-foot-1, 160 pounds Riley played both cornerback and wide receiver for the Wahpeton football team.
This summer in the Courts Plus Summer League Riley was one of the best free throw shooters in the league. Riley ranked 8th in the division in foul shooting and this was a league of quality teams from North Dakota and Northern Minnesota.
