Coach: Scott Taylor, fourth season (50-34)
2018-19 Record: 22-9, 11-3 in Southwestern 4A
• Starting Five: Drake Maye, 6-5 junior forward (13.6 points, 8.4 rebounds, 2.6 assists); Kameron Mack, 5-8 senior guard (6.9 points, 2.9 assists, 2.5 rebounds); Xavier McKelvy, 6-1 junior guard (4.9 points, 1.7 rebounds); Kaden Elaasar, 5-10 senior guard; Tyrese Gwinn, 6-6 senior forward (2.2 rebounds)
• Rotation Players: Elijah Strong, 6-7 freshman forward; Henry Ryan, 6-3 junior forward; Jacob Newman, 5-10 sophomore guard (3.9 points)
• The Dish: The Mustangs made it to the Great 8 last season and nearly knocked off RJ Reynolds to advance further. All-conference forward Maye is back after a terrific sophomore season. Maye has inside-out, point-forward type game that drives this team. Mack is a good shooter and creator who could at least double his scoring average. McKelvy will bring scoring as well, but with three guards rebounding will be critical. Gwinn will help there, and new starter Elaasar will get every opportunity to shine. Expect the uber-talented Newman to take a big jump this season, while freshmen Strong and Ryan will play now.
