Michigan City Wolves

Last season: 19-4, 12-2 Duneland Athletic Conference, lost in Class 4A Sectional 2 first round to Chesterton

Inside the Wolves

Leading returning scorer: Tica Murphy, 14.2 ppg.

Leading returning rebounder: Keshyana Cooper, 14 rpg.

Newcomer to watch: Michal Miller, Fr., G. Part of another talented Wolves freshman class, Miller will plug right into the starting lineup. She's already on Indiana University's recruiting radar. "She's legit," coach Mike Megyese said. "She's probably further along than (Merrillville's Raveen) Murray as a freshman. She didn't make a splash right away, but now you see what's going on with her."

Breakdown

Wolves loaded for a run

Michigan City comes off a 19-win season with four junior starters back. It has every reason to believe it will be better. "Our starting five is as good as any in the DAC, without a doubt," Megyese said. Murphy is cold-blooded scorer with a knack for the clutch shot, and Megyese said Cooper is as good of a rebounder as there is in the northern half of the state. Jameka Collins has improved her shot and is strong going to the basket. Aubria Smith has shown the ability to be a lackdown defender. The cat-quick Cheyanne Gerron will help the Wolves turn up their "organized chaos" another notch. "We're stronger on defense," Megyese said. Thanks to a talented crop of freshmen, depth doesn't appear to be as much of a concern as it was last year, when M.C. often used just six players. "I'll play five kids 32 minutes if I have to," Megyese said. "We'll do whatever we have to do. We've just got to get in good shape, and we're not there yet. We're seven solid, and it could be eight." !~ Jim Peters
