Outlook: The Golden Eagles may still be rebuilding but there are reasons for Maple Mountain basketball fans to be optimistic about the future.
“We are gaining experience this year,” head coach Johnny Averett said. “We have two seniors but a lot of underclassmen who will get plenty of playing time. We have younger players who can play. They are good shooters and good ballhandlers.”
He believes that what will make the biggest difference for his squad will be if they are willing to play unselfish basketball and move it around. He said if the Golden Eagles get a lot of assists, they will be hard to guard.
