Notable Losses: George Muench (8.2 ppg)

Lourdes Academy gets it top three scorers back from last season, including Ruedinger, one of the top point guards in the state.  The Knights played a loaded schedule last season that featured Hustisford, DeForest, Laconia, Roncalli, and Milwaukee Academy of Science, and will be battle tested in 2020-21.

The Wildcats easily won the Dairyland Small Conference last season by a whopping four games. After surviving against Bangor, Blair-Taylor was also one game away from the state tournament.  Waldera, a versatile, do-it-all forward nearly averaged a double-double as a junior.
