Inside the Hawks

Leading returning scorer: Spencer Sheets, 7.2 ppg

Leading returning rebounder: Spencer Sheets, 1.5 rpg

Star power: Spencer Sheets, Sr., F. Sheets showed what he was capable of in the sectional win against North Judson, scoring a career-high 18 points on 7-of-8 shooting.

Newcomer to watch: Bryce Hanaway, So., G. The heir apparent at the point, Hanaway is young, but he's hardly inexperienced, already a varsity performer in cross country and baseball.

Breakdown

Don't sell the Hawks short

Hebron graduated the dynamic 1-2 combination of Damon Wallace and Cody Artuso among seven seniors, but coach John Steinhilber isn't calling this a rebuilding year. "Obviously, we graduated some stars," Steinhilber said. We don't expect anybody to come out and try to be those guys. We just have to continue to work on what we can do, on what we can control. I think it's going to be a more by-committee approach." Hebron will lack the size it had last year, which will bring a change in the defensive strategy if not the philosophy. "We're still going to come with it," Steinhilber said. "Our guards can pose some problems with their quickness." Hanaway steps in at the point, where he'll be flanked by Kyle Joyce. Steinhilber expects Ryan Patz and Tony Rose, the JV leading scorer, to head the front line, where Jon Moneta will add some muscle and 6-5 sophomore Spencer Sutherland could lend size. "The first two days, last year wasn't mentioned once," Steinhilber said. "We're going to strive not to. People may be thinking we're going to be down a little bit. We're not looking at it that way. I think we're going to surprise some people. They understand the bar's been raised." — Jim Peters
