The defending state and Super 25 champion Huskies are only missing two parts of their championship team, but they were key parts, the American Family Insurance ALL-USA Player of the Year in PG Lonzo Ball, now at UCLA, and ALL-USA Coach of the Year Steve Baik. Former Chino Hills and Long Beach State player Stephan Gilling is the team’s new coach with Baik now at Fairfax (Los Angeles).
However, the rest of the team just got older and better: senior F LiAngelo Ball (27.5 ppg) and sophomore G LaMelo Ball (16.4 ppg, 3.8 apg) — both UCLA commits — return.Also back are talented sophomore big man Onyeka Okongwu (7.9 ppg, 7.2 rpg) and senior W Elizjah Scott (15.8 ppg, 8.6 rpg), a Loyola Marymount commit.
Sophomore guard Phaquan Davis will be expected to step up at point guard.
