2015-16 Desert Pines Boys Basketball Capsule

DESERT PINES

Head coach: Mike Uzan, fifth season

2014-15 record: 22-10 (13-1 Sunrise, first)

Returning lettermen: Ten

Top players: G/F Trevon Abdullah (Jr.), G Capri Uzan (Jr.), G/F Greg Floyd (Jr.), G/F Jordan Simon (Jr.), G Curtis Henderson (Sr.), C Bryan Penn-Johnson (So.)

Outlook: The Jaguars bring back 10 lettermen from last year’s Division I-A state runner-up squad.

Capri Uzan (17 points, 5.2 assists per game) led the team in scoring, and Abdullah (15.6 ppg, 9.8 rpg) was the team’s top rebounder.

The 6-9 Floyd, who played sparingly as a freshman at Clark and sat out last season, and 6-10 Penn-Johnson (4.0 ppg, 5.0 blocks per game) give the Jaguars plenty of size.

Simon (9.0 ppg, 4.0 rpg) and Henderson (6.0 ppg, 2.0 apg) also could be solid contributors for a team that has aspirations of a state title.

“It’s a fun, exciting group that works hard,” Mike Uzan said.
