Multiple Teams · 2016-17 BOYS BASKETBALL PREVIEW: Team-by-team capsules (North Forsyth)

Original Article Sports Link


North Forsyth

Coach: Brian Moon

Last season: 9-16

Key returners: G Girard Amoyo (Sr.), G/F Connor Stephenson (Sr.), F Jon Aiken (Sr.)

Key newcomers: N/A

Outlook: The Raiders will have a lot of growing to do this winter. Despite finishing 8-10 last season in league play, North showcased some formidable talent—especially record-setting point guard Chad Bureau and streaky shooter Nick Cunningham. Those two, along with Tyler Koch and Jacob Bailey, depart and leave North looking for size and athleticism.

Jon Aiken and Connor Stephenson will bring in plenty of experience, while Girard Amoyo got considerable playing time last season and could become a go-to guard. The key will be for one of the three returning players to establish themselves as a scoring threat. Stephenson could become the center of the team on both sides of the ball.
