WEST CHESTER TWP. — The Lakota West High boys basketball team looks to bounce back from its 5-18 season a year ago.

Firebirds coach Jim Leon enters his second season at the helm.

Here’s a snaphot of the Lakota West boys basketball program:

QUOTABLE: “We return three starters and a very talented transfer from Atlanta in Julian Mackey,” Lakota West coach Jim Leon said. “We lack size, but are exceptional in overall speed and quickness. The faster-paced game will suit us well. We will press and run. The key to our success will be developing depth with our young guys.”                                                                 

2018-2019 POSTSEASON: Lost to Winton Woods 59-46 in the first round of the Division I tournament.

2019-2020 SEASON OPENER: Tuesday, Dec. 3 at Turpin at 7:30 p.m.

NOTABLE: Last year’s wins over St. Xavier, Elder, Turpin, Colerain and Middletown.

RETURNING STARTERS FROM LAST SEASON: Carter Combs, Brady Weber and Osean Anuforo
