Location: Bradenton, Fla.
Preseason Rank: 2
2017-18 record: 22-5
Final 2017-18 Super 25 ranking: 23

The Ascenders are loaded this season and have a great combination of versatile players that give them what it takes to challenge for the GEICO Nationals title.

Josh Green (27.9 ppg., 7.7 rpg., 2.8 apg., 1.6 spg.), a shooting guard who is committed to Arizona and ranked No. 8 overall in the Chosen 25 for 2019, anchors the backcourt with Noah Farrakhan.

Those are the only two starters returning from last year’s team, but the Ascenders added two of the best bigs in the country in forward Armando Bacot (24.5 ppg., 11.5 rpg.), a North Carolina commit who is ranked No. 11 overall in the Chosen 25 for 2019, and Jeremiah Robinson-Earl (21.3 ppg., 8.1 rpg.), who is ranked No. 17 overall in the Chosen 25 for 2019.

Also, expect sophomore forward Brandon Huntley-Hatfield to be productive in the IMG frontcourt this season.

The Ascenders picked up combo guard Jaden Springer (25 ppg., 10 rpg.), who is ranked No. 14 overall in the Chosen 25 for 2020, and two of the top freshman guards in the country in Dior Johnson and Jarace Walker, making them the deepest team in the country.
