Last year: 14-9, 5-2 (PCC)
Coach Matt McKay is essentially hitting the reset button after losing six seniors from last year's team. The Wolves return only 17 points per game and Jon Hogg (11.5 ppg) is a huge chunk of that production. McKay will benefit from Sam Eleftheri's return to the lineup. The senior tore his ACL and missed his entire junior campaign. Niko Kilburg will start despite not playing last year and he'll be joined by senior classmate Skyler Mizagate to give the Wolves four seniors in the starting lineup. "We've got a good mixture of veterans and younger players, but it will take some time for them to gel together," McKay said. The longtime coach is expecting to be battle-tested from a strong non-conference schedule as well as the Porter County Conference gauntlet. Despite having a relatively new squad, McKay still has strong postseason expectations. — Paul Oren
