Las Vegas Boys Basketball 2013-14 Capsule Preview



Head coach: Jason Wilson, sixth season

2012-13 record: 19-10 (8-2 Northeast, first)

Returning lettermen (starters): Four (one)

Top players: F/G Ray Smith (Jr.), G Devon Colley (Jr.), F Tyler Bey (So.), G Patrick Savoy (Jr.), G Roberto Zavala (Sr.)

Outlook: The Wildcats have some work to do after losing eight seniors from last year’s Northeast League champions.

Smith, a 6-foot-7-inch wing, averaged 10 points and 3.5 rebounds per game last year. Colley (7.0 ppg, 3.5 assists per game) and Zavala (4.0 ppg, 3.0 rpg) also hope to contribute more.

“We have some talented players returning, but we will be young,” Wilson said. “The kids will have to identify their new roles early and learn at a quick pace.

“If they can play together and learn quickly from game experience, we hope to be competitive and battling for a home playoff game at the end of the season.”
