SILVERTON, Ore.– The Silverton Boys Basketball team will look vastly difference going into the 2022-23 season following the graduation of nine seniors and a new coach in Tyler Allen taking over the program from Jamie McCarty.
The Foxes return three players who swung up from Junior Varsity in Eli Haugen, Tyler Mansour and Evan Good as Silverton prepares for another season on the court under their first-year coach in Allen. Using these next few practices to prepare for the season that starts December 6 at Milwaukie to get those new to the Varsity game up to speed.
“It’s a pretty big deal with all of our seniors left and we don’t have too much experience, so we just have to come out and show what experience we learned from the guys last year,” Good starts. “(The Seniors last year) taught us all to be like family, to play together and that kind of stuff.
“Everyone’s a little rusty and we have to go through some plays, other than that I feel like we got a good group of guys out here.”
Silverton;s home opener will be December 10 against Springfield before hopping into Mid-Willamette Conference play December 13 against Woodburn going into the Capitol City Classic on December 16 at Willamette University.
