Primary Offensive Strategy: Fast Break, Continuity, etc.
Returning players key to your offense:
Like most teams, our offense starts with our point guard, All-Conference Honorable Mention Junior Tyree York. He is the quarterback. He is a steady handler with good vision and feel. He is complemented by Jeremiah Jackson, also an All-Conference Honorable Mention Junior at the Center/Forward position. JJ is a very good finisher around the rim and gets great position to score down low. He too is a very good passer out of the post. They are joined by junior and leading scorer Joe Harks, who moves extremely well without the ball and has a high basketball I.Q.
Returning Lettermen: 8
Primary Defensive Strategy: Solid Man to Man
Returning players key to your defense:
Tyree has improved every year with his positioning on the defensive end. We're trying to keep him out of foul trouble and limit his gambling for steals. The risk is greater than the reward in that area. The same thing goes with Jeremiah. If he can avoid picking up 2 fouls in the first half, we become a much stronger team. Senior Mykyta Cheshko is a great position guy and communicator. He really solidifies our defense when he is in there. Joe Harks, Elliott Vaughn, and the rest of our guys know the system so we are excited about our defensive aptitude this year.

Damian Zalewski - McHenry HS, IL
Coach Griffin says this about the offense:
We have been a very good assist team in the past because we share the ball and we are unselfish. However, our Achilles Heel has been our turnovers. If we can get that number down this year, our Opponent FG % will decrease even more, and we will be able to stay in games against superior teams, or we'll be able to open up big leads against weaker teams. Our free-throw shooting must improve, or else we'll be on the end of some shockers again like we were last year. When our offense is clicking, we feel we can get a good shot every time down the floor.
Coach Griffin says this about the defense:
We finished third in the CCAC last year in Opponent FG%, and we think we can improve on that again this year. It starts with not turning the ball over. Teams usually shoot a great percentage off turnovers because they usually have fast break options. We will continue to live on pressuring the ball, being in the right place all the time, keeping the ball out of the post, and defending various ballscreen actions. Equally important, we will rely on not fouling on defense and getting fouled on offense to create an advantage every game that can hopefully make up the gap against teams with more talent and athletes.
