2018-2019 Boys' Basketball Preview
Coach Peter Murray describes his view of the 2018-19 Boys’ Basketball season as being “cautiously optimistic”. “ I think there is a lot of potential there, but we’ve got to prove it on the court.” The Tigers lost four seniors from the previous season but will have three returning starters.
The Tigers will have a full roster of 12 members: seniors, Kobe Pillsbury, Trever Richards, Chris Fitzgerald, Ethan Boutilier, Hunter Speed, juniors, Nathan Richards, Cameron Paige, Haedyn Guenther, Logan Perkins, sophomores, Brett Kusnierz, Parker Ponte and Robbie Dorman.
According to Senior Trever Richards, “ shooting and defense” will be their strengths. Rebounding will be a weakness for the Tigers because of the lack of big men on the team. Trever Richards, Kobe Pillsbury, and Nathan Richards can wreak havoc on defense with there quickness and scrappiness.
The Tigers will open their season away at EMCC against Bangor Christian on December 8th.
