NORTHEASTERN ATHLETIC

Outlook: With three returning players standing 6-7 or taller, Mooseheart has the size to dominate the league. It’ll have to contend with Luther North’s pressure defense and a young Rockford Christian Life team that will improve as the season goes along. Westminster Christian and IMSA also could contend.

Top five players

Isaiah Butler, IMSA, F, Sr.; Mangisto Deng, Mooseheart, F, Sr.; Chris Jenkins, Luther North, G, Jr.; Makur Puou, Mooseheart, C, Sr.; Niko Sanchez, Rockford Christian Life, G, Sr.

Did you know? IMSA plans to have a 10-man rotation, and the Titans expect to full-court press and play an up-tempo offense.

Quote: “We went 24-6 last year and that was a really disappointing season. We have some really lofty goals this year.” — Mooseheart coach Ron Ahrens.

Predicted finish: Mooseheart, Luther North, IMSA, Rockford Christian Life, Westminster Christian, Harvest Christian, Alden-Hebron, Christian Liberty Academy, Keith Country Day, Faith Lutheran.
