Video: Preseason Top 25 basketball rankings
Breaking down the national contenders heading into the 2019-20 season.
Head Coach: Luke Barnwell
Last Season: No. 15 in final Top 100, 22-6 (GEICO Nationals participant)
(6-foot-3, Sr., G) — Committed to Northwestern
The Buffaloes return very little production from last season as all five starters were lost to graduation after a strong season that saw a first GEICO Nationals bid.
Despite losing in the first round to eventual champions IMG Academy, last year set a new standard for the program.
If this group wants to return to the Big Apple at the end of the year, it will have to identify a go-to guy early with a tough national schedule starting in late November.
The top-ranked team from the Sunflower State takes on another challenging national schedule, highlighted by showdowns with No. 5 Huntington Prep, No. 10 La Lumiere, No. 17 Gonzaga, No. 24 Hillcrest Prep and a trip to the City of Palms Classic to compete in the Signature Series.
Key additions Brown, Clemence, Stone and Berry are expected to lead another loaded lineup for Sunrise Christian Academy.
Look for returning bench contributors Pohto and Jennings to see increased roles as well for a team that will be eager to return to GEICO Nationals.
