Head coach: Daryl Branham, second season
2015-16 record: 9-14 (2-6 Northwest, fourth)
Returning lettermen (starters): Six (two)
Top players: G Demarco Alexander, G Keiron Hatchett, G Elijah Coleman
Outlook: Alexander, who averaged 10 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists per game, is one of six returning lettermen for the Spartans, who should be more competitive this season.
Hatchett (8 ppg, 3 apg) and Coleman (8 ppg) also represent quality scoring options for Cimarron.
“With six returners from last year’s team, we are looking to improve with the experience coming back,” said Branham. “Transfer Kamakana Winquist, a 6-foot-4-inch forward, from Centennial should help with rebounding and scoring.”
