Keys to success: “We hope to continue to grow as a team and as a program. The MOAC has welcomed us into the league, and that has provided a tangible goal for our kids. We hope to represent the outstanding things going on at Marion Harding every day with an uncommon effort on the hardwood. We must stay healthy. Capturing team chemistry and accepting our roles with the unselfish attitude that champions possess will be keys to our success. We have good perimeter shooting and great kids who have a willingness to be coached. But we are unproven offensively in the post, and we need to become tougher physically and mentally on the defensive end of the floor.” — Head coach Don Worstell (second season at Marion Harding, 12-11; 205-160 overall.).
