Scouting Report: Hinckley-Big Rock

Coach: Greg Burks (5th season, 114-17)

Last season's record: 22-8 overall, 7-1 Little Ten Conference; LTC co-champions

Postseason result: Lost, 53-32, to Annawan in Class 1A Varna Sectional semifinal; won Indian Creek Regional title.

Key returning players: Lauren Paver, jr., G; Abbie Tosch, sr., F; Jacqueline Madden, so., G; Bridgette Edmeier, sr., F; Karrigan Cowan, so., F

Impact newcomers: Andrea Binkley, jr., G; Caitlin Flanigan, jr., G;, Anne Klein, so., G

Outlook: H-BR enters the 2012-13 season coming off six consecutive regional championships. However, this year's team returns just two starters, and loses two-time Daily Chronicle Player of the Year Kaitlin Phillips and two-time All-Area selection Katie Hollis.

Burks said his team should be strong defensively. Right now, the Royals' question mark is being able to score.

Coach's take: "The nice thing is, of the eight players on the roster, I'm confident to play everybody. We can play everybody and we will play everybody."
