F Demetric Austin, Springbrook, 6-6, Sr.
G-F Scott Bolen, Sherwood, 6-5, Sr.
G Nick Griffin, Magruder, 6-2, Jr.
F Garland Owens, Magruder, 6-5, Sr.
The usual suspects are expected to be atop the league; Magruder ended Springbrook’s run of three consecutive state championships in last season’s Maryland 4A West Region final. Magruder has a slew of junior guards, led by Griffin, who has scholarship offers from George Washington and Holy Cross, and point guard J.J. Epps. Owens is strong inside.. . . Austin returns for Springbrook after being academically ineligible the second part of last season; he averaged 16.3 points per game.. . .
Bolen averaged 17.4 points for Sherwood, which should be improved from its 13-12 season a year ago. C Charlie Rogers, a 6-5 senior, also returns for the Warriors. . . . Churchill does not have any superstars, but is solid throughout, led by 6-6 senior Thomas Geenen. . . . Quince Orchard and Blake, contenders in the Montgomery 3A/2A league last year, move up in classification. The Cougars are led by G Myck Miller.
