After finishing the 2012-13 season storng, the Willsboro varsity boys basketball team will look to continue their momentum into the first season of the Northern Basketball League.

Head coach Jim Spring said that the team is young, with no varsity players with more than one year of experience.

“Even with four returning players from last years team, no one has more than one years’ experience,” he said. “With five sophmores on the team were going to make mistakes. Hopefully as the year goes on we can learn from these mistakes and become a better team.”

The Warriors return senior All Valley starter Nick Arnold who despite missing a chunk of the regular season with an injury finished fourth in the Valley in scoring (236 points) in 2012-13.

Seth Swires and Jarrid McVicker round out the senior members of the roster and are joined by juniors Nolan Murphy and Jake Hubburd along with sophomores Lucas Cross, Zach Pierson, Keenen Hampton, Cole Pierce and Chase Pierce.
