Outlook: Bellinger is a high-scoring wing player who averaged 25 points a game in leading Fort Zumwalt South to the state quarterfinals. Shumpert is also a returning player who will provide athleticism and offensive rebounding around the basket. Loyd is a scoring point guard who was one of the most improved players in St. Louis this past season. Cooper and Null can knock down 3-pointers while Jones is a versatile wing player with size and strength.
