Head coach: Lonnie Cambell, third season
2014-15 record: 9-18 (7-7 Sunrise, fifth)
Returning letter winners (starters): Eight (five)
Top players: G Chrystian Myles (Sr.), G Jordan Bailey (Sr.), F See’Airrah Evans-Collins (Jr.)
Outlook: The Jaguars narrowly missed the playoffs last year, finishing with the same record as fourth-place Sunrise Mountain, but losing the tiebreaker.
With five starters back, including Myles (11.5 points, 2.5 assists per game), Bailey (11.9 ppg) and Evans-Collins (9.5 ppg, 14.4 rebounds per game), Desert Pines is set up for a big season.
“We’re looking to make the playoffs and finish in the top three of our league,” Cambell said. “We’re looking for a great season.”
