The Saints boys basketball team hosts county rival Madelia on Tuesday, Dec. 4, with the varsity game slated to start around 7:30 pm.
Head Coach Steve Walker returns three starters. There are two seniors and ten sophomores listed on the varsity roster.
Starters back include senior point guard Joe Nelson and juniors Walker Froehling and Zach Brandts.
Brandts was the Saints leading scorer last year and Froehling was the teams second leading scorer.
So the Saints have a one, two scoring punch returning. Senior Sam Carlson got some valuable playing time last year and junior Ryan Menssen also had some playing time last season.
Coach Walker said he wants his players to get the ball up the floor in an uptempo game.
In order to be successful, the Saints will have to boxout and rebound effectively.
Effectively boxing out on defense will be a key, because the Saints are not blessed with a lot of tall players.
Walker thinks it should be a good game when Madelia comes to town. Madelia returns a couple of good guards according to the Saints head coach.
