AUBURN TROJAN BOYS BASKETBALL AT A GLANCE

COACH: Ryan Hansen, 10th year

LAST SEASON: 21-7 overall, first place in the SPSL North 4A with 13-3 record. No. 2 seed out of districts, lost to Jackson in the first round of state tournament.

TOP RETURNERS: Harold Lee, junior, 5-9 guard; Lincoln Burt, senior, 6-1 forward; Nik Edwarson, senior, 6-4 forward; Kendall Ray, senior, 6-8 post; and Spencer Fisher, junior, 6-5 post.

LAST STATE APPEARANCE: 2011

OUTLOOK: The Trojans lost eight seniors from last year’s SPSL North 4A championship team, including Kevin Henderson and Iszia Johnson (22.3 and 17.1 ppg average, respectively). To remain competitive in league they will have to get big contributions from veterans like starting point guard Lee (1.9 ppg) and Edwardson (3.4 ppg), as well as from newcomers such as 6-3 sophomore Marquis Prater, the younger brother of Henderson.

KEY GAMES: The Trojans begin league play at 7:30 p.m. Friday when they host Tahoma. Auburn travels to Auburn Riverside on Jan. 6 to take on the rival Ravens.
