Head coach: Kevin Soares, 15th season
2012-13 record: 22-6 (10-0 Southeast, first)
Returning lettermen (starters): Eight (two)
Top players: G Jalen Shepard (Sr.), G Austin Starr (Sr.), F Torrance Littles (Jr.)
Outlook: The Falcons have some holes to fill after losing three starters from last year’s squad.
Starr gives Foothill an outside weapon and averaged 12.5 points per game while shooting 41 percent from 3-point range last year.
Shepard likely will be the team’s point guard and averaged eight points and five assists per game, and the Falcons will look for Littles, a 6-foot-7-inch junior, to do damage inside.
“We are looking to win our league, get a number one seed and advance to the regional championship with hopes of qualifying for the state tournament,” Soares said.
