2016-17 Pahranagat Valley Boys Basketball Capsule Preview

PAHRANAGAT VALLEY

Head coach: Mike Strong, 16th season

2015-16 record: 18-10 (8-2 Division IV Southern, fourth)

Returning lettermen (starters): Seven (four)

Top players: C Culen Highbe (Jr.), G Tabor Maxwell (Sr.), G Cody Williams (Sr.), G Christian Higbee (Sr.), F Tyson Jorgensen (Sr.), G Ike Taylor (Sr.)

Outlook: The Panthers finished in three-way tie for second in the Southern League last year, but lost out on a tiebreaker and were seeded fourth for the playoffs, where they fell to league champion Word of Life in the league semifinals.

Four starters return from that squad and could have Pahranagat Valley in the league title hunt.

Highbe, a 6-foot-10-inch post, averaged 9.6 points and 6.8 rebounds per game last year. He joins Maxwell (8.2 ppg, 4.8 rpg, 1.4 assists per game) and Williams (6.6 ppg, 4.8 rpg, 1.7 apg) among the returnees.

“We hope to continue to improve as a team and program this season,” Strong said.
