Boys’ basketball teams ready to hit the court

(Continued)

BROWNSBURG —

“Having that kind of experience to help me in this process and this journey has been really good,” he said. “The basketball part of it, I love. I love being on the floor, I love being with the guys. I like that can we spend time teaching and that kind of stuff. That’s where like I feel I get the most out of myself is in that time.”

Tri-West

Coming off a disappointing 8-14 season, the Tri-West Bruins are ready to bounce back in 2012.

The Bruins will be doing so with what coach Adam Bontreger says is his deepest team in his four years at Tri-West.

“On a given night I feel comfortable being able to play 12 guys and not blink an eye at it, which doesn’t happen very often,” he said.

Bontreger went 17-6 in both of his first two seasons and believes that record is possible with his core coming back. Tri-West returns five of its top six scorers from last year with leading scorer Sam Koelling’s average of 10 points per game and 52 percent shooting coming back.

Koelling and fellow senior Mitch Alexander will be the team’s two captains this season.

The Bruins also return two key sophomores in Jake Hendershot and Trevor Waite. Each combined for 14.6 points per game and received a heavy amount of playing time in 2011.

“Both of those guys went through trial by fire last year and in some ways were forced to be uncomfortable and were challenged,” Bontreger said. “The challenges we went through last year as a team and for those guys individually, I think those are definitely going to pay off with this year’s team.”

Bontreger has his best group of athletes during his four years at Tri-West. The majority of the major players for the basketball team were also stars during a fall sport.
