G/F Josh Grimard, Loudoun Valley, 6-6, Sr.

F Paul Rowley, Loudoun Valley, 6-7, Jr.


In Grimard and Rowley, Loudoun Valley has the area’s best one-two punch and the inside track to a second district title in as many seasons since returning to the AA Dulles District after a four-year stint in the AAA Cedar Run. The duo should also get help inside from 6-5 senior forward Jovon Miller, one of four returning starters.

With the graduation of Greg Graves (21 points per game), expect a much-improved Allen to shoulder Potomac Falls’ scoring load. . . . Dominion sophomore guard Lael Davis, an O’Connell transfer, already has helped the Titans clear their two-win mark from a year ago. . . . After just four victories in the program’s second season last winter, Tuscarora (3-20) returns its entire starting five on a team that could surprise.
