Inside the Red Devils

"We're returning quite a few experienced varsity guys, so we're looking to get over the hump. Coach (Mike) Magley has done a good job building a foundation for us to build off of." !~ coach Nate Richie

Leading returning scorer: Austin Richie, 27.7 ppg.

Leading returning rebounder: Richie, 4 rpg.

Go-to player: Richie, Sr., G. He can obviously score at all times and is adept at creating opportunities for other teammates. He's also 100 percent healthy now.

He's got next: David Stang, Sr., C. At 6-foot-9, he will likely be the Red Devils' biggest post presence. He's showing aggression and playing to his size, too.

Circled on the Calendar: Dec. 29 at Zionsville Holiday Tournament. Playing two games in one day will represent the IHSAA tournament atmosphere. Zionsville, South Bend Washington and Franklin Central are all in the field, and all three are quality teams.

The Times' Breakdown

Not surprisingly, Austin Richie will be counted on to provide the bulk of Lowell's scoring. He is the most prolific returning scorer in the state; only the graduated Mr. Basketball, Deshaun Thomas, had a better scoring average last season. New coach Nate Richie knows his Western Michigan-bound younger brother will score, but the focus is on getting the team as a whole in better shape. "We are putting a lot of physical demands on the guys, and they are responding like returning veterans," Nate Richie said. "We are going to run, up-tempo." Lowell has good size, both in the starting lineup and off the bench. Along with Stang, the Red Devils will have 6-8 Kyle Richwalski in the lineup. Lowell's continued emphasis on conditioning should pay some dividends when the Red Devils face athletic teams and keep the players fresher throughout the season. !~ Matt Douthett
