HEAD COACH: Chris Chaney
KEY PLAYERS: Karim Coulibaly, 6’9” Big, 2019; KK Curry, 6’6” Wing, 2019 (South Alabama-commit); Clarence Nadolny, 6’4” Wing, 2019; Judah Jordan, 6’2” PG/Wing, 2019 (Weber State-commit); Chris Maidoh, 6’10” Big, 2019; German Kasanzi, 6’4” PG/Wing, 2019; Abdou Barre, 6’8” Big, 2022
OUTLOOK: Chaney, who has led 5 different programs to the National Prep Championship tourney, has put together a roster with the potential to make some serious noise in ’18-’19…. Coulibaly, a 6’9” lefty from Mali, is a man-child in the post but has worked to improve his footwork and face-up game as well. His stock has steadily risen over the last two years and the big man now holds offers from almost every high-major conference in the country…Jordan is Weber State’s latest steal and is as cool as a bomb technician on the perimeter. He provides smooth, steady floor play but also has the ability to mix things up, explode for 30 and ruin your night….KK Curry spent last season at St. Thomas More where he became one of my favorite takes. Low-maintenance on the court, Curry wreaks havoc by getting into passing lanes or blocking shots and is also a threat to score at all three levels. The 6’6” wing will head to South Alabama in the fall….Nadolny recently earned an offer from Georgetown and seems poised to have an electric post-grad season. He was a major contributor on an NJ Playaz squad that gave everyone fits throughout the EYBL season and now looks to step to the forefront at Scotland….Kasanzi comes over from Spain where he played on Real Madrid’s U-18 squad….With a mix of strong perimeter play and talented big men, it would be foolish to expect Chaney’s squad to end up anywhere other than the National Prep Championship in March. They’ll square off against Northfield-Mt Hermon at 7:30pm on Saturday night and return to face MacDuffie at 1:45pm on Sunday at the NERR National Prep Showcase at Albertus Magnus this weekend.
