Head coach: Paul Sanchez, second season
2012-13 record: 13-11 (7-3 Northwest, second)
Returning lettermen (starters): Six (one)
Top players: F Travis Gondrezick (Sr.), G Braxton Richards (Jr.), G Ja Morgan (Jr.), G Chase Ruiz (So.), G Conner Lemmon (Jr.)
Outlook: The Panthers return six lettermen from a team that finished second in the Northwest League.
That’s the good news. The not so good news: Only one of those six started. Most were role players, who combined for only about 20 points per game.
“We’re a young team that graduated four seniors,” Sanchez said. “We’re looking to improve as the season progresses and be competitive in the league.”
