DeKalb

Scouting Report: DeKalb

Coach: Dave Rohlman (eighth season, 102-108)

Last season's record: 13-17 (7-3 Northern Illinois Big 12 East), NI Big 12 East co-champions

Postseason result: Lost, 40-37, to Huntley in Class 4A Huntley Regional semifinal

Key returning players: Jake Carpenter, sr., F; Andre Harris, sr., F; Jake Smith, sr., C; Zach Ottum, sr. G

Impact newcomers: Rudy Lopez, so., G; Patrick Aves, jr., G

Outlook: The Barbs will have to work hard to replace point guard Brian Sisler, the 2012 Daily Chronicle Player of the Year, but Rohlman does have two players who can handle the ball in Lopez and Aves.

DeKalb has good depth throughout the entire program this season. At the varsity level, Rohlman plans to have a rotation of 10 players.

Coach's take: "I would say the one thing I've noticed already, is these guys are willing to play defense. They want to play defense."
