Prep boys basketball preview: Cromwell-Wright Cardinals
The 2022 Cardinals will be strong on defense, but will need to improve on their perimeter shooting after struggling at times last season.
Head coach: Bill Pocernich
Assistant coaches: Dean Levinski and Marshall Thompson
Returning starters: Seniors Ethan Shelton, Zevvus Smith, Nathan Eliason and junior Noah Foster
New Faces: Senior Michael Zoeller, freshman Dylan Nyberg and sophomore Tanner Collman
Team Strengths: "Once healthy, we should be deep and we should be solid defensively," coach Bill Pocernich said.
Biggest Challenge: "Last year, inconsistent perimeter shooting was our downfall in several games. That will need to improve if we are to match or surpass last season's successes," Pocernich said.
"This will be a competitive and fun group to coach if we can get and stay healthy. They work hard, are unselfish, and compete well." Pocernich said.
