Weddington (13-12, 6-4)
The Warriors return a “new” old head coach in Gary Ellington after a one-year hiatus. Ellington has a lot to work with in 2023-24. Senior guards Grant Hamilton, Jack Ellyson, and junior wing KJ Younger will be the “Big-3” for Weddington. Hamilton was 1st Team All-UCHoops as a junior and All-SCC (15.7 ppg/4.7 rpg/43% from 3). Ellyson (10.7 ppg/4.0 rpg/3.0 apg) is a 3-year starter with BIG game experience. Younger (6.6 ppg/4.4 rpg) was named UCHoops 6th Man of the year last season and will be needed to score and facilitate more as a junior. Those three studs along with senior guard Aidan Cook, who will run the point make the Warriors a dangerous team that will contend for the SCC Title again. Keep an eye on senior wing Noah Mutteb, who missed all last season with a knee injury, when healthy Mutteb is a dangerous shooter from 3-point range. The Warriors open the 2023-24 season at Rocky River on November 17th.
