HAMILTON — The Hamilton High boys basketball team brings back some scorers.
And Big Blue coach Kevin Higgins said he can’t wait to see what they’ll do during the 2018-2019 season.
“We believe that we can continue to improve on both ends of the floor and become a highly competitive team as the season develops,” Higgins said. ”We feel we bring back good experience and good depth at the guard position.”
Those returning are Greater Miami Conference’s No. 3 and No. 4 scorers in senior guard Jaylen Robinson, a Northern State commit, and senior guard D’Marco Howard. Both averaged 17 points a game last year.
Sophomore guard Kurtis Reid, senior guard Payton Pennington and junior wing Trey Robinson are three others who will help the Big Blue tremendously, according to Higgins.
Sophomore guard Jackson Lewis, junior guard Kristian Walton, junior guard Khalil Daniels, junior guard Braedyn Jackson, junior guard Ke’von Burnett and sophomore forward Romello Diablo round out the roster for HHS.
Hamilton, which went 12-11 overall and 7-9 in the GMC last year, opens up the season at Northwest on Friday, Nov. 30.
