Head coach: Adam Schwartz, second season
2016-17 record: 4-22 (2-8 Sunset, fifth)
Returning lettermen (starters): Seven (five)
Top players: F John Harper (Sr.), G/F Chris Jackson (Jr.), G Tyrice Pender (Sr.), F/G Isaiah Harper (Jr.)
Outlook: The Rattlers struggled to find success last season, but should be in a much better situation to compete this year.
“We should be much improved as we return our top seven guys from last years team,” Schwartz said. “We have a lot of experience returning and have added some pieces from our successful lower levels.
“No one thinks about us as being one of the better programs in our division or Class 3A, and it is our goal to change that perception. We are going to play hard and compete every day and will hopefully put Mojave basketball back on the map.”
