USA TODAY High School Sports will reveal the preseason Super 25 boys basketball rankings as part of “Super 25 in 25,” with one team revealed each hour beginning at noon ET on Thursday and continuing through Friday.
No. 23: GONZAGA COLLEGE HIGH
Location: Washington, D.C.
2014-15 record: 25-12
Final Super 25: Not ranked
The Eagles won the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference last season and return five players that started at one point.
Junior 5-6 point guard Chris Lykes is a matchup nightmare because of his quickness. Lykes is ranked as the No. 2 overall player in D.C. in the Class of 2017 by the 247Sports Composite rankings. Lykes was firs-team All-WCAC and averaged 13.9 points per game.
Other key returnees include: junior 6-4 forward Eddie Scott; sophomore 6-2 guard Prentiss Hubb; and sophomore 6-4 forward Myles Dread.
Navy commit Jack Lawrence, a 6-9 senior, gives the team some size underneath.
Devon Flowers, a 6-7 forward who was on the JV team last year, also will be expected to contribute.
Scheduled season opener: Dec. 1, Archbishop Carroll (Washington, D.C.)
