Inside the 59ers
Leading returning scorer: Nick Davidson, 17.7 ppg
Leading returning rebounder: Collin Wojcik, 4.3 rpg
Star power: Nick Davidson, Sr., G. "He's been our leading scorer and most productive player three years in a row," coach Carson Cunningham said.
Newcomer to watch: Sam Toporski, Sr., G/F. "He's a big, strong kid who can really shoot the 3 and he rebounds really well," Cunningham said.
59ers swimming in a deep talent pool
Andrean returns four regular starters and seven players in all who started at one time or another on a team that shot 50 percent from the field — including 41.2 from beyond the arc — and averaged only 11.6 turnovers. The all-around game of Valparaiso University-bound Nick Davidson is key once again, but he's not the whole show. Opponents must also contend with D.J. Gonzalez (7.3 ppg); Sam Toporski (5.7 ppg, 3.1 rpg); Skyler Moss (7.2 ppg, 3.8 rpg); and Collin Wojcik (12.6 ppg, 4.3 rpg), a 41 percent shooter from beyond the arc. Coach Carson Cunningham has nine solid seniors to help him win a fourth consecutive sectional and possibly the school's first regional since 2000. !~ Al Hamnik
