Head coach Rahim Tufts will no longer have All-State point guard Jamison Guerra Jamison Guerra 5'11" | CG Sherwood | 2020 State OR (12.7 ppg, 5.8 apg) to turn to but he’s got some quality guards returning starting with track star Asher Krauel Asher Krauel 6'1" | CG Sherwood | 2021 State OR (12.3 ppg, 3.3 rpg, .427 3pt%).
