Coach: Dave Gonyea (24th year)

Conference: YSCC

Last year’s record: 19-6, 12-4 in YSCC

Returning athletes: Juniors — G Elijah Barbour (12.2 ppg), F Cam Duncan; Sophomores — F Josh Chery (12.3 ppg, 8.0 rpg), G Corey David (8.0 ppg, 3.3 apg), F Cody Tozier (6.8 ppg, 5.1 rpg), G Freddy Webb (5.1 ppg, 44.9% 3-pt FG), G Rodney Theodore, G Kenny Huynh, F/C Jack Sylvester, G Malik Farley, G Ricky Thompson.

Season outlook: With a veteran roster, the Mustangs are hoping to improve upon last year’s conference-semifinal ending and return to nationals. Chery, a second-team All-American last year, leads 13 returners. Barbour, last year’s second-leading scorer, also returns, while Gonyea expects Tozier, a Lincoln Academy alum, to provide more scoring support. David is a steady floor general at the point and is joined in the backcourt by Webb, who was one of the top 3-point shooters in the YSCC last year. The frontcourt should be bolstered by Johnson, a raw but talented addition.
