When it comes to depth of talent, Wayzata has the most in Class AAAA basketball.  That said, they were 11-17 last year.  Despite last year’s stumbles I still believe they are on the short list of Class AAAA favorites.

Key Wins in 19-20: CDH, Edina, Armstrong, Tonka

Oops: 17 losses in 28 games is a lot of oops regardless of the early season injuries as well as the late start from the football players.

Moving On: The Trojans return six of their top seven scoring threats from last year so all the key pieces are back, they still lost four seniors from the regular rotation.  Those players are Josh GullicksonJoshGullickson6'3" | SGWayzata | 2020StateMN, Jacob Wildermuth, Connor YarbroughConnorYarbrough6'1" | SGWayzata | 2020StateMN, and Grant Bokowitz.  It’s a group of reserve forwards and guards that combined to score 10.4 points a game last year with Gullickson giving half the production (Gullickson started). 

Returning Starters: After a brutal 2-12 start, Wayzata settled into a healthier, steady rhythm winning nine of their last 15 games.  In that starting line-up was guards Kody WilliamsKodyWilliams6'0" | PGWayzata | 2021StateMN (now a senior) and Drew BerklandDrewBerkland5'11" | PGWayzata | 2022StateMN (junior), and forwards Camden HeideCamdenHeide6'6" | SFWayzata | 2022State#35NationMN (junior) and Carter BjerkeCarterBjerke6'8" | PFWayzata | 2022StateMN (junior).
