Inside the Warriors
Leading returning scorer: Raashan Carson, 7 ppg
Leading returning rebounder: Raashan Carson, 4.5 rpg
Star power: Raashan Carson, Sr., G/F. Has the potential to be a good inside and outside scorer this season. He has the most varsity experience of anybody on the roster and will likely be the go-to scorer.
Newcomers to watch: Cornelius Hill, Sr., G; Nick Vega, Sr., G/F; Sha'Quan Little, Sr., G. All of them play together well as a collective unit. As seniors, they will likely provide leadership to the younger members of the team.
Warriors looking for improvement
Last season was a big disappointment for the Warriors, who defeated North Newton for their only Greater South Shore Conference win. There isn't a lot of varsity experience back from last season, but in Matt Justin's second year as coach, the only place they can really go is up. There is a very good mix of size and speed. Joshua Borst is a 6-foot-8 forward/center who continues to refine and improve his game after playing in some summer tournaments this year. "I think we're turning it around," Justin said. "I have high expectations for our team. I do know that we will be significantly better." Calumet should be improved in its guard play this season, with a better ability to take care of the ball and commit fewer turnovers. Calumet will open up the season at Hanover Central before hosting Bishop Noll for its second game. Those two games should be an excellent measuring stick to see if the Warriors have improved as a collective unit.
