Skinny

Freedom-South Riding, Broad Run and first-year Patriot (no seniors) are new Cedar Run members.. . . Osbourn lost only two seniors off the team that made the program’s first state tournament appearance last year (a one-point quarterfinal loss to L.C. Bird after leading by 17 in the fourth quarter). But senior F Jahaan Roberson will miss the season with a torn ACL... . . Broad Run’s Johnson averaged 25.2 ppg last year, fourth-most in the Washington area.. . . New Battlefield Coach Kurt Pauly guided a Minnesota team to a Class 4A championship appearance in 2006. The Bobcats have reached regionals the past four years.. . .

Baltimore was a first-team all-Evergreen District pick at Brentsville last season for Patriot Coach Daniel Nemerow. The Pioneers won their first two games.. . . Stonewall’s 6-foot-6 swingman, Marquis Yates, could present matchup problems.. . . Osbourn Coach Mike Dufrene has a son, Landon, on his team and a daughter, Bailey, on the Eagles’ girls’ team.
