NO. 14 CHERRY CREEK
Location: Greenwood Village, Colorado
2018-19 record: 24-4
Final 2018-19 Super 25 ranking: 21
Head Coach: Clint Evans
Jana Van Gytenbeek was a stud in last year’s playoff run, posting more than 20 points in each of the final four games as Cherry Creek raced to the championship.
The five-star Stanford commit leads a cast whose four leading scorers are returning, including Cali Clark, who averaged 14.7 points and 9.8 rebounds per contest.
The Bruins are in position to chase a repeat – though if there’s one thing that could stop them, it’s lack of post defense, as Clark is the only player on last year’s team to average a block per game, according to MaxPreps. But that didn’t stop them last year, so opponents can’t count on that happening this.
Cherry Creek is talented, experienced and returning the main group.
