Final Comments:
I really like the energy and passion that this group plays with and they really communicate well. They bring it every day and we will compete every night. Our depth will be a big key to our success and we will improve greatly throughout the season. We want to be playing our best basketball in Feb/March.

EBC outlook: Alliance brings back the most firepower and should be the favorite, however West Branch should be right there. Marlington lost the POY, but brings back talent. Minerva and Salem will be young, but they compete every night and are tough places to play. The league will be very competitive from night to night in my opinion.
