Boys Basketball Preview


Lisbon David Anderson’s Varsity Basketball team is Division IV. There are four seniors; Jacob Mundy, Branson Brownfield, Dougie Minor and Grant Frederick. We have three returning letterman this year; Justin Sweeney, Branson Brownfield and Dougie Minor. There are many good teams we are playing this year but our biggest rivalry is Columbiana.  This season we are expected to do well due to having excellent speed and athleticism. The team is motivated by working hard in practice and competing against each other to learn new strategies. Strengths in the team are their athleticism, shooting and experience. Weaknesses are that there is not a lot of height on the team, defense and rebounding. New members on varsity are Jacob Mundy, Grant Frederick, Brice Blackburn, Ryan McCullough, Nick Mundy, Micheal Davis and Joey Fisher.

Basketball is a sport that teaches you about playing for your teammates, not yourself. Seniors have shown this and compared to their freshmen year, they have grown physically and become smarter players. The players realize to win you have to put in the time and effort every day on and off the court.
