Five boys basketball players to watch

Drew David, Kaneland, sr., PG

David took a while to get going last year because of an injury suffered during the 2012 football season.

Yet he came up with one of the most memorable shots of the season, burying a 3-pointer at the buzzer to beat Sycamore at home.

Garrison Govig, Indian Creek, sr., C

At 6-foot-8, Govig gives the Timberwolves size that not many Class 1A schools can match up against.

He’ll continue to be a force in the paint for what should be a good Indian Creek team.

Rudy Lopez, DeKalb, jr., PG

Lopez showed flashes of greatness last year, but followed the pattern of an up-and-down Barbs team.

He should be much improved in his junior year and look for him to be one of the best point guards in the conference.

Tommy Lucca, Genoa-Kingston, so., PG

Lucca could end up being the leading scorer in the area.

He has great quickness on the perimeter and a long-range shot to go with it.

Devin Mottet, Sycamore, sr., F

A versatile forward who can do a little bit of everything for the Spartans,

Mottet will lead a veteran group of seniors who are ready to build off the success they had last season, winning a regional championship.
