Coach: Jim Horn

Last Season: 4-17

Letterman Returning: 6

Season Opener: Loy Norrix @ Portage Northern (December 10th, 7:15 PM)

Outlook: After a frustrating winter last year, Jim Horn and the Portage Northern Basketball team look to rebound in Horn’s 2nd year on the job. The team showed signs of life late in the year last year, winning three of the last five games before losing to Loy Norrix by 9 in the district play-in game. Northern lost its best big man and leader, Nick Keizer but returns plenty of fire power and brought in plenty of talent from an exceptional junior class. Brandon Bye, Adam Ashbaugh and Patrick O’Keefe lead the strong senior class, but look for Tre Humes, Daryn Snow, Blake Therrian, and Quinlen Dean to all make an impact this year.
