|Coach: Todd Hanson, 17th year
Last year: 11-7, lost in Eastern Class A quarterfinals
Returning starters: 3
Impact players: Brad Smith, sr., C; Konnor Scarponi, sr., G; Ryan Black,
jr., F; Blake Gordon, jr., G; Derek Devereaux, jr., G; Alex Bandouveres,
Outlook: The Dragons will have the 6-7 Smith in the middle and four
guards around him. The team has strong chemistry that should lead to a
tournament berth again. Smith has the potential to average double
figures in points and rebounds. Scarponi is in his third year as a
starter and will be counted on for scoring and defense. The Dragons were
ranked fifth in a preseason poll of KVAC coaches. “If we play together,
we should be in the mix,” said Hanson.
