This is a promising young group of players. I watched them play in the spring at Battle At The Lakes and they impressed me. For youngsters, they are very skilled and seem to know the game well. This ECI team can really shoot it from beyond the arc. As these players grow and mature they will be studly varsity basketball players. A few of them will be making an impact on their varsity squads this coming year. All of these ECI ballers have a bright future in the game of basketball.

Team comments from coach Kaleb Lowrance

"Overall, we had a very successful season. We showed a lot of growth over the summer and came together as a group. Results weren’t always what we wanted, but I had a great group of kids that played hard and bought in on what we were trying to do."
