GREAT FALLS — The Great Falls High boys basketball team finished the regular season atop the Eastern AA with a 15-3 record last year and found itself in the semifinals of the State AA tournament before eventually settling for fourth place.
Great Falls High lost an experienced senior class but quite a few pieces return for the 2019-20 season. While there are plenty of unknowns, this team will have plenty of strengths, as well.
"We got a good chemistry going because we've had this team, a lot of guys playing together, since we were pretty little," junior Drew Wyman said.
"We got some young guys who are really going to step up this year, some really good seniors to help us this year, but, yeah, we got some really good young guys," senior Teage Fought added. "It's just exciting when there's young guys who can help out. We got even a couple sophomores. It's really cool when they're that young that they can really show themselves on the court."
Head coach Bob Howard noted that it's hard to tell how his team will come together this early in the season, but he knows he has a solid group of athletes.
"Balance, I think athletically. I think we will be pretty athletic and it just kind of depends on how we're going to shoot, and, you know, got a lot of unknowns," Howard said. "Got a lot of unknowns to try to figure out."
