Richland went into last season with moderately high expectations and very quickly emerged as a legitimate top-5 team in Class B. The Colts went to the state tournament and ultimately finished third. With four starters back including arguably the best perimeter trio in the state, the Colts are a legitimate state title contender in 2019-20.

GO-TO GUY: Cole Myers

Meyers was an all-state guy as a junior, averaging 18 points and seven rebounds. He does it all on the offensive end, using his 6-foot-2 frame to score in the paint while also knocking down more than two 3-pointers per game. He’s efficient, explosive and incredibly consistent.

BREAKOUT CANDIDATE: Colten Evenson

Evenson averaged 7 points and 6 rebounds last season, finding a lot of success in that junkyard dog role. He’s athletic and active in the paint, does a good job moving without the ball and finishing. And his interior defense is a key for a team that mixes in zone and has to offset a relative lack of height. With the talent around him, Evenson could very well average in the double-double range next winter.

QUESTION: Who will take on complementary roles?

Myers, Carter Lingen and Gavin Reiland are entrenched
