Head coach: Noah Hartsock, second season
2016-17 record: 23-5 (12-0 Northwest, first)
Returning lettermen (starters): Six (one)
Top players: Ishon Hardin (Sr.), Aaryn Anderson (Sr.), Hunter Bohls (Sr.), Teon Taylor (Sr.), Savior Gines-Rivera (Jr.)
Outlook: And so begins life without Troy Brown for the Bulldogs.
Brown, a four-year starter who averaged 22.3 points, 10.5 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game last season, already is shining in college at Oregon this year, and the Bulldogs will have to work hard to replace him.
Hardin (8.4 ppg) is the top returning scorer for Centennial, which has six lettermen, but only one starter, back.
“The team looks to compete in every game we play in this year and make and advance in the playoffs,” Hartsock said.
