Team breakdown

This year’s Michigan City team will look decidedly different from last year’s squad. Seniors dominated last year's team, while this year’s will lean on seven juniors. Michal Miller, who averaged 11.7 points per game last season, leads that junior class. Coach Mike Megyese called her one of the top-three guards in the area. “It’s always nice to start with an all-state point guard, and that’s something we have,” he said. “She’s gotten over the summer. She worked real hard with her AAU program and individual workouts. It’s nice to build around an all-state player, and we have that.” Junior guards Destinee Fields, Cheyanne Gerron and Raven Wood return to help in the backcourt, while senior Diamond Thompkins returns to the frontcourt. “We’ve got kids who have some game experience, but now it’s their team,” Megyese said. “It’s a different show when it’s their team.” Megyese said the strength of his team will be in the backcourt, at least early in the season. “The guards we intend to start are quick, they all play defense, and they can all put the ball in the basket, so I’m pretty excited,” he said. “Our guards should be able to compete with anybody.” — Andrew Stem
