Boys’ basketball teams ready to hit the court

(Continued)

BROWNSBURG —

Not even one year removed from the college basketball season, Nored is hoping to bring his ferocious defensive style of play to Brownsburg.

The graduation coach for the freshmen at BHS sees a lot of upside and likes what he has on his roster.

“We have a lot of guys who do a lot of really good things well,” Nored said. “Hopefully we can find that balance of those different guys and different combinations.”

Sophomore K.J. Walton is expected to pace the Bulldogs after averaging 7 points and 53 percent from the field last year.

Nored said that Walton has gotten early looks from Indiana, Illinois, Xavier, Stanford, and Providence. With that recognition comes added responsibility this season for Walton.

“He’s going to have a large role for us, he’s going to have to,” Nored said. “He had a really good AAU season and a lot of guys have shown some interest in him. He’s going to have to be good for us, no question.”

Other key players for Brownsburg include juniors Xavier Ringo, Sam Comer, Trevor Lucas, and Kyle Thompson.

Nored said he likes his team’s youth and thinks that they will be able to grow collectively. The early unknown is how deep the rotation will be and who will be playing with who.

“We’re still trying to figure out who is going to be on the floor when,” the 22-year-old coach said. “We’re mixing up different lineups in practice when we are going live to figure out what combination of guys play well. When they sub out, who can come in next and contribute.”

Helping ease this transition has been an experienced, well-versed coaching staff. Gordon Hayward Sr., Bronson Lickliter (head coach at Randolph Southern 2010-12), and 36-year Marian University coach and recent retiree John Grimes are a part of Nored’s coaching staff.
