Genoa-Kingston

Scouting Report: Genoa-Kingston

Coach: Cory Jenkins (11th season)

Last season: 11-16 overall, 4-6 Big Northern Conference

Postseason Result: Lost to Northridge Prep, 57-42, in Class 2A Genoa-Kingston Regional quarterfinals

Key Returners: Mason Lucca, sr., PG; Adam Price, sr., G; Eli Thurlby, jr., F

Impact Newcomers: Tommy Lucca, fr., G;

Outlook: It was an up-and-down season for G-K last year, a sleeper pick that couldn't quite put it together. But the Cogs return a deep core of experienced players.

One question mark for G-K will be on the interior. The Cogs don't possess a ton of height, but Jenkins didn't seem too concerned about it and said it hasn't been a problem for smaller G-K teams in the past.

Jenkins has high expectations for Tommy Lucca, the younger brother of Mason Lucca. Only a freshman, Jenkins praised Tommy's basketball IQ and called him a "difference-maker" for G-K.

Jenkins' take: "We've always been able to defend well. We've always come up with schemes in the past and our kids buy in and they'll play for one another."
