2015-16 Western Boys Basketball Capsule


Head coach: Rudy Johnson, third season

2014-15 record: 2-24 (2-12 Sunset, seventh)

Returning lettermen (starters): Three (zero)

Top players: G/F Kwan Carter (Jr.), G/F John Swayzer (Jr.), G Nakia Harris-Neal (Sr.), G Michael Teagues (Jr.), F Anthony Dodson (So.), F Muhrad McCluney (Sr.)

Outlook: The Warriors struggled last season, but should show signs of improvement this year despite returning no starters.

Harris-Neal averaged 12.2 points and 2.6 assists per game last year for Claremont (Calif.) and could make an impact for Western, which also welcomes back Carter, Swayzer and Dodson.

“We lack experience without any varsity starters,” Johnson said. “We have two sophomores that should develop into good players, and we expect to improve.”
