Valley Boys Basketball 2013-14 Capsule Preview



Head coach: Brian Farnsworth, ninth season

2012-13 record: 21-10 (8-2 Northeast, second)

Returning lettermen (starters): Eight (three)

Top players: G/F Spencer Mathis (Sr.), G Cameron Burton (Jr.), F Shea Garland (Jr.)

Outlook: The Vikings return two of their top three scorers from last season in Mathis (15.7 points per game) and Burton (10.9 ppg).

Valley matched Las Vegas at 8-2 in the Northeast, but lost the tiebreaker and was seeded second for the postseason. Being in contention for a league title again this year is realistic.

“This year’s team looks to build on last season’s game and playoff experience to compete at the highest level,” Farnsworth said. “With a very deep conference, no game will be easy.

“We always hold high expectations for ourselves and look to senior Spencer Mathis to lead the way.”
