St. Cloud Cathedral point guard Jackson Jangula was a key figure of a state tournament team as a junior leading the Crusaders in assists and steals while scoring nearly ten points a game.
Cathedral lost NSIC players Michael Schaefer and Mitchell Plombon but expectations are still high at Cathedral.
“We have all of our guards coming back from last year,” Jackson said. “But will be losing our two bigs. Expectations for this year will to try and make it back to the tournament, not many people think we will be able to without the two bogs. We hope to prove them wrong.”
Returning along with Jangula will be Nick Schaefer and the pair is getting a head start on senior year preparation by playing with one another on the highly successful Comets K team that’s had a great start to the year.
“Some tops moments for me have been when we have beat big name teams and being ranked in the top 10 teams,” Jangula said. “We hope that by the end of the year everyone has gotten better and played with no regrets. Also we would want to be ranked by the end of the year still.”
Jackson averaged 9.5 points per game with 5.9 assists a contest playing a key role. Jangula shot 38 plus percent at the arc and had nearly a 3 to 1 assist to turnover ration. Now he’s working out and getting ready for a career of playing college basketball.
“I want to improve as a player is in the weight room, get bigger, faster, stronger,” Jangula said. “I have been talking with mostly division three schools and little bit of D2 schools. St. John’s, Concordia Moorhead, and Jamestown are some teams I have talked to. I plan on visiting Concordia and St.Johns.”
