Turnover and transfers are a roster-derailing combo. Unless, of course, you have someone who’s ready to fill the empty shoes. Below you’ll find the players that’ll be thrust into a bigger role in the 2019-20 season after key departures in the offseason.
G Cam Paleese - Waukesha West:
Loses - David Skogman, Chris Bready, Rocky Martinez, Alex Regenfelder
Last year, Waukesha West's starting-five accounted for 95 percent of their scoring. 70 percent was whisked away with graduation, though Cam Palesse, the other 25 percent, is returning for his junior year.
The departures are foisting an uncertain future onto the former one-seed, and mitigating their losses doesn't look like a possible avenue. But Palesse is someone that can allay their roster's unsureness and keep them on the winning side of things. He averaged 17 points, 5.8 rebounds, 4.5 assists, and 2.7 steals per game as a sophomore last season. He does everything on the court, both offensively and defensively. His all-around impact is an ideal base for reshaping a program after roster churning, and he has the shoulders to carry an inexperienced supporting cast.
C Grant Asman - Kimberly
Loses - Reed Miller, Levi Nienhaus-Borchert
