Curious about who will come out of the east this year. Melba, Marsing, Cole Valley, Nampa Christian, and McCall look like they will be in a dogfight all year for their spots at state. St. Marie’s and Grangeville should fight for north. Declo looks to come out of the central again. What do people from the East think will happen out there? I am hearing West Side is a contender. Have Ririe and Fremont dropped after the seniors that they lost? Is West Jeff on the upswing. What do you think eastern Idaho?
Rigby will be a bit different as far a the play style goes, because they have much more strength in bigs than guards, but they have the Berrett kid still, and he has the potential to score 30 a game if he needs to. It might take them a little bit of time to get back into the groove of basketball, because all but 2 of the main players played football up until a little under 2 weeks before the basketball season. They are a little bit short on guards with Taylor, Martin, and Olaveson leaving last year, but they have a lot of promise with the young guard group coming up, and the Miller kid as the point guard, who has been on varsity since a sophomore. The competition in their district this year is pretty weak, with Thunder Ridge, Highland, and Madison. Rocky Mountain and Post Falls will be tough too, but I would still give the upper hand to Rigby. Any thoughts?
