Scouting Report: Independence Eagles

MURFREESBORO-

Independence High finished 5-22 last season.  Few teams in the state cobbled together a more unimpressive record.  The Eagles appear quite a bit better heading into 2018-2019.

The schedule will be difficult once again with Nolensville, Brentwood, Centennial, Franklin, etc. all very challenging foes.  Why can Independence expect more positive outcomes this year?

  • Matt St. Charles has the long, lean look of a basketball scorer.  He moves well at 6-foot-3 and yet this day he barely produced offensively.  Surely he can give more. 
  • Independence plays so cohesively.  Though the team lacks obvious All-District players they attack and defend together. 
  • Great chemistry.   Crisp ball movement and sharp cuts without the ball.
  • Jack Sisson (2019) is always around the ball.  Pictured above #24 has hands that are active and disruptive defensively.   Jack isn’t a burner but he can keep up with guards because he anticipates wonderfully.

St. Charles definitely possesses the capacity to score among the team leaders.
