Can Carson repeat? Will Reno reload? Is Spanish Springs and/or Galena ready to emerge?
The 2016-17 4A North boys basketball season starts with a lot of questions.
To view how the power rankings ended last season, click here.
1. Spanish Springs Cougars
Spanish Springs enters the season with the most talent. Can the Cougs piece it together and win their first regional title?
2. Galena Grizzlies
Dillon Voyles has the potential to be the most dominant player in Northern Nevada.
3. Bishop Manogue Miners
The Miners are led by new coach Moe Golshani. He’s scrapping the playbook.
Manogue will no longer be a half-court team, and will instead launch an up-and-down, fast-paced offense.
Can they run their way through a talented Sierra League?
4. Carson Senators
Carson ran through the 4A North last year to a 16-0 regular season mark and a regional title.
Graduation and injuries have left this a different team. However, Tez Allen and Jayden DeJoseph will be one of the best tandems in the region.
5. McQueen Lancers
Octavian Corley was a game changer for the Lancers in the middle of the floor. The 6-10 center was a defensive presence and added more than 18 points a game. He graduated.
His departure, as well as a coaching change, will alter the Lancers’ look.
