Breakdown

Wolves' senior-heavy team sets high expectations

Michigan City coach Mike Meygese and the Wolves have set the bar high for the 2012-2013 basketball season. After losing to Penn in the regional semifinal last year, the Wolves are preparing to go further in the state tournament, and to a potential state championship.

"We're so much better than we were last year," Jameka Collis said. "We think that this year we'll go so much farther than last year."

The Wolves will be backed by seven seniors, and return all of the same players from last season.

"I expect us to get farther than regionals," Aubria Smith said. "I expect us to go to state. We are senior-dominated. I believe with the help of our seniors we can go really far. It's going to feel good to have that cohesiveness. We always play well together; we know what we can and cannot do."

"Most of us have been playing AAU together sine fifth grade, so our chemistry is really good," Dejania Evans said. "Since we know each other and have been together for so long, it'll take the team farther, especially for our senior year."

Meygese said that with the DAC being one of the most competitive conferences in the state, winning the conference won't be easy.

"We've got to get by a lot of teams," he said. "Merrillville is a great team, and we know they're going to come at us. We know we have an opportunity to get to the state tournament, but it's not going to be easy." !~ Molly Smerika
