AUBURN RIVERSIDE RAVENS BOYS BASKETBALL AT A GLANCE

COACH: Shawn Kilgallon, second year.

LAST SEASON: 8-12 overall, sixth place in the SPSL North 4A with 7-9 record.

TOP RETURNERS: Prince Ligon, senior, 5-5 guard; Jeray Bates, senior, 6-3 post; Cody Crawford, junior, 6-2 wing;  Bridger Harlington, senior, 6-3 wing; and Spenser Armstrong, junior, 6-2 guard.

LAST STATE APPEARANCE: None

OUTLOOK: The Ravens lost five players to graduation last season, including their two top scorers, Cameron Grad (20.4 ppg) and Cole Luckett (18.8 ppg). Auburn Riverside will need to find someone to step up. Their best bets are seniors Ligon and Bates, (8.4 and 7.1 ppg average last season.) With their tallest playing standing just 6-3, the team will be tested by squads posting true post players.

KEY GAMES: The Ravens get an early test in SPSL North 4A play when they host Kentridge on Dec. 6. Auburn Riverside hosts rival Auburn at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 6.
