2018-19 Bishop Gorman Boys Basketball Capsule


Head coach: Grant Rice, 18th season (446-94 career at Gorman)

2017-18 record: 29-4 (12-0 Southwest/first)

Returning lettermen (starters): Ten (three)

Top players: G Zaon Collins (So.), G Noah Taitz (Jr.), G Chance Michels (Sr.), G Will McClendon (So.), C Isaiah Cottrell (Jr.), F Braden Lamar (Jr.), F Mwani Wilkinson (Jr.)

Outlook: Taitz (17 points per game) and Cottrell (12 ppg, 10 rebounds per game, 3 blocks per game) highlight a group of 10 returning lettermen for the Gaels, who have won the last seven large-school state titles.

“We have three returning starters and five of our top seven guys back from last year,” Rice said. “It should be an exciting team.

“We plan to run quite a bit this year, starting four guards around Isaiah Cottrell. Braden Lamar and Mwani Wilkinson will give valuable minutes and size of the bench.”
