— The Indian Lake-Long Lake boys basketball team will try to improve on their last season’s record of 3-12 in the conference and 5-13 overall.

Coach David Olbert said he lost Damon Gagnier and Zack Ruland to graduation this year, but he has 10 returning players.

“I think we will have a very good chance of competing for the division title,” Olbert said. “Damon Gagnier started most games for us down the stretch but Rudy Giesson who started a number of games especially early in the season should fill that void nicely.”

With 26 years of coaching experience under his belt, Olbert is entering his third year coaching the Orange boys varsity basketball team. His win-loss record is 16-21, and he hopes that record will improve with the 2012-13 squad.

“We have four starters that can handle the ball well and can shoot well from the perimeter,” Olbert said. “Colin Farrell and Matt Moore are both capable of playing inside and out making them very versatile and hard to guard. Colin is our go-to guy as he was last year and should be a dominant force in out conference.”

The team’s main weakness is its speed.

“Overall we could be faster,” Olbert said. “The players are athletic enough but quickness can only be developed to a certain extent.”

The team begins its regular season on Tuesday, Dec. 4 with a game at Wells.
