2016-17 Sunrise Mountain Boys Basketball Capsule Preview


Head coach: John Teran, fourth season

2015-16 record: 11-14 (7-7 Sunrise, fifth)

Returning lettermen (starters): Four (two)

Top players: G Trevor White (Sr.), G Steven Adeyemi (Jr.)

Outlook: Only two starters return for the Miners, who lost five seniors to graduation.

Adeyemi (8 points, 5.6 rebounds per game) and White (6 ppg, 3.6 rpg, 2.4 assists per game) should be among the team’s leaders.

“The Miners have continued to improve over the last few years, but are still hungry for their first postseason play,” Teran said. “Our athletes have bought into our system. However, size and experience might become a factor throughout the season. Hopefully this is the year that we get over the hump; we have missed out on the playoffs by one game the last three years.”
