“We’ve got a little bit of height and some good speed,” Huddle said. “What we want to do is try to find a good balance between pushing the ball and half court sets, and we have been doing a pretty good job of that in our scrimmages and practice.”
A new-look year for many teams in the region means a fairly open field of play. Fleming County is essentially a loaded bunch. With its core of starters from 2011 making the ruturn, Fleming is the favorite to take home 16th gold.
After that, it’s essentially anybody’s game, with Russell and Kyle Skaggs looking to make some noise of their own; Ashland Blazer looking to reload and Boyd County looking to make a return to its glory days.
“I think once you get past Fleming County, there are several teams that could beat anyone on any given night,” Baker said. “I’m comfortable with these guys and we’ve got a solid nucleus of returning players. I would like to think that we will be more consistent with our play throughout the season.”
The Raiders kick off the 2012 season tomorrow night at home as they take on district opponent Elliott County.
