Superior boy’s basketball returns top scorers from Sectional Final run
Last year the Superior boys basketball team reached their first sectional title game since 2016, and ended just one win shy of the state playoffs.
Fast forward to present day, and the Spartans return their two top scorers who are already looking to reach new heights.
“Got some length back. We got some size, we got some playmakers. We definitely have some scores this year, so really excited to kind of put it all together. Then we got some young kids out here that could have an opportunity to move up and play a role,” head coach Kory Deadrick shared.
“We were pretty unexperienced and young last year, so I’m excited for that. Just us being one game away from state last year really helped like our experience and our mental kind of. We had a really good off season, we’re hard workers, so I’m ready to see if we can make that jump,” senior guard Brandon Aker said.
Fellow senior guard Tresean Sanigar shared keys to what he thinks will put the Spartans over the edge and into state.
“Just getting our underclassmen up and going with things because this is their first year playing Varsity. J.V. is definitely different than like eighth grade basketball, so that’s a big jump for them,” Sanigar said. “Mainly just like having a positive attitude because we only have eight guys so far our team. If two kids get checked out, then we have six kids left to play the game. So mainly our attitude and like how we carry ourselves.”
Superior finished last season 15-12 in the WIAA Sectional Finals. The Spartans tip-off their 2023 season Friday, November 24 when they travel for the D.C. Everest Invitational.
