The Boys Varsity Basketball team finished with a daunting record last season of 4-20. The boys just recently lost their star player, Justin Mathews, but in his time here at FHN he only led them to 14 wins in three years. So the question is, is this going to be a new wave for a FHN? Well really, it all depends on how this years group handles losing their leading offensive scorer. The Knights need to find some sort of leadership on the team. Someone who is confident in their play, can get all five men involved on the court with their passing and can be an effective scorer themself, as they may need to be the spark in their offense on a game to game basis. This will hopefully come from the point guard position as they begin every play with the ball and control the tempo of the game. Defensively, the Knights are going to have a big struggle this year as they do not have two well-defined big men on the team. The big men, from the center and power forward position, are supposed to provide a jolt of energy when the offense is lacking. But with the Knights not really having a true center this year, it will be difficult for them to get big time blocks in crucial moments of the game. The Knights will really have to rely on their guards to come up with steals this season to get easy fast-break buckets and give that boost of energy that their defense is lacking. Finally, with t most of the load on the Knights guards, on both offense and defense, I predict that they will be too gassed to finish late in games. So I predict the Knights will have a 10 win season.
