Head coach: Joseph Bedowitz, first season
2015-16 record: 19-10 (6-2 Northwest, second)
Returning lettermen (starters): Four (two)
Top players: G Taiga Miyano (Sr.), G Jacob Heese (Jr.)
Outlook: Bedowitz inherits a team that has only two returning starters.
Heese (10 points, 6 rebounds per game) and Miyano (7 ppg, 4 assists per game) will be among the leaders on a team that hopes to remain competitive.
“With the mass exodus of seniors, Desert Oasis still has enough key pieces to make some noise in a highly-competitive Southwest League,” Bedowitz said. “With young talent filling out the roster, we feel that we will surprise a lot of people and grab a playoff spot.”
