Coach’s comments: “We have a brand-new court, and our goal is to protect our home floor. Our three seniors are our leaders, and they played a lot of varsity last year. They have been with us and know the culture of the program. There is nothing set in stone with our lineup, but we do want our returning seniors to lead the way. The guys up from JV are meshing well. Their summertime together was huge. It’s up to the underclassmen to grow and keep the program going. We’re a blue-collar team, a hard-nosed team and we’re going to do everything to compete every night. Win or lose, you’re going to know you competed against Beech Grove.
