Last winter was supposed to be a rebuilding season for the Packers but after a slowish start, West Fargo emerged as one of the three or four best teams in the state. The Packers went 3-1 in the regular season against Fargo Davies and West Fargo Sheyenne, reached the EDC Tournament title game (before losing to Davies) and made another trip to state. With three starters and four of their top six guys set to return, the Packers will head into the 2019-20 season with contending aspirations.

GO-TO GUY: Hunter Lyman

Lyman was the third-leading scorer for the Packers last year, averaging 11.6 points per game. He also chipped in with 8.6 rebounds per game including nearly three per game on the offensive end. Given his size, strength and mobility, I’d expect that number to rise in his senior year. At 6-foot-8, he’s got solid footwork in the low post and can finish through contact. He’s not dynamic creating his own shot, but he’s got good hands, a solid motor and the finishing ability to produce without a lot of isolation low-box touches.

BREAKOUT CANDIDATE: Carson Hegerle

By the middle of the year, Hegerle could be this team’s go-to guy.
