Kaneland

Scouting Report: Kaneland

Coach: Brian Johnson (fourth season, 51-30)

Last season: 17-11, 5-5 Northern Illinois Big 12 East (third place)

Postseason result: Lost to Rockford East, 66-54, in the Class 3A Sycamore Sectional semifinal

Key Returners: Drew David, jr., PG; Dan Miller, sr., G/F; Matt Limbrunner, sr., F

Impact Newcomers: Tyler Carlson, jr.; John Pruett, jr.; Cole Carlson, jr.

Outlook: The Knights will certainly be thin this year after losing four starters, including graduated seniors Trever and Tyler Heinle and Marcel Neil, along with junior Thomas Williams, who moved to Texas. But the Knights do have some experience returning, with David running the point and seniors Miller and Limbrunner coming back after being key contributors last year.

It will be tough for Kaneland to challenge for the conference title without depth, and they’ll need juniors Tyler Carlson, Cole Carlson and Pruett to step up to have a chance of having another successful season.

Johnson’s take: “We just want to go out and play our game, which hopefully is hard-nosed defense, and take care of the basketball, making teams work on both ends of the floor.”
