2015-16 Chaparral Boys Basketball Capsule


Head coach: Steven Bentz, third season

2014-15 record: 16-12 (10-4 Sunrise, third)

Returning lettermen (starters): Seven (four)

Top players: G Marc Silas (Sr.), F Richard Nelson (Sr.), G Samuel Porras (Jr.), G Robin Rosales (Sr.), F Ben Kirschbaum (Jr.)

Outlook: The Cowboys return four starters from a team that finished third in the Sunrise League last season.

“We have high expectations for this season with lots of quality returners back from last year’s team,” Bentz said.

Silas, the team’s point guard, averaged 16.6 points per game last season and is joined by Porras (9.6 ppg), Nelson (6.5 ppg, 7.0 rebounds per game), Rosales (5.0 ppg) and Kirschbaum (3.0 rpg).

“We have lost some size inside, so we will have to rebound well as a team to end possessions,” Bentz said. “Our guards will have to work hard on the defensive end and play together in order to reach our goals and expecations for the season.”
