As we get into the swing of previews, we will track each class with teams that we are interested in. Up next in our list of superlatives are the 2A teams that we think have the best chance to lead the state in scoring. Next will be the five 1A teams who will have the best chance to lead the state in scoring.
Last year, Andrean was a little bit of a breakout team as they won 19 games. They lost their top scorer from a year ago, but sophomore Kyle Ross has improved greatly. Ross scored 13.9 points a game last year and should score even more in this campaign. Andrean has a few pieces that were really underrated last year and will look to improve this year. They are a team that is solid in every facet of the game and will look to contend in the North. Ross is a guy who teams are really going to have to focus on this year and that will open it up for his teammates.
Marquette Catholic lost a few players off of last year’s squad who could really score the ball but they do return Colin Kenney and Joe Andershock. Both of these guys could easily average north of 20 points a game this year as they look to compete in the 2A North. They will need a few other guys on the team to step up since they lost some key players from last year but they should be locked and loaded to score this year. They are going to compete and if they hope to make it to State they are going to have to score points.
Howe did lose a lot of talent from last year’s team, but they still know how to score. Kycia Washington is going to be the motor that moves Howe this season and we saw flashes of brilliance from him last year. Howe isn’t going to be as star studded this year as they have previously been but they are still going to have guys that can score the ball at a torrid pace. They are going to utilize their press to turn in fast break points and were down opposing teams. Look for Howe to do some damage this year in the scoring column.
A year after a 24-3 campaign, Southwestern comes back stronger. They have a solid chance of being very good over the next three years and this may be their best year to make some noise. Of their 61.9 points they scored a year ago, they only lose 10.1 points a game from last year. Those point should easily be made up by the players coming back. Tyler Kramer returns for his senior year after averaging 22.0 points a game last year. They have a ton of pieces and should be near the top of the list this year.
Wabash is going to be a breakout team this year as they look to run teams out of the gym with their scoring. They return all of their key players besides one and they should be able to score more points than last year when they averaged 63.4 points a game. Leading scorer Trenton Daughtry is back along with his 16.9 points a game average from a year ago. Wabash is going to need to score points with their schedule this year and this roster is set up just to do that.
