Boys Basketball Preview: Denfeld Hunters
By Rick Weegman
Coach: Jeff Nace, 14th season
Conference: Lake Superior
2006-07 record: 17-8, 9-3
Key returnees: The Hunters lost the majority of
their team to graduation but return junior G Ben Hayes.
Key game: Denfeld must wait until March 3 for
a chance to gain redemption for a season-opening loss to Central.
Outlook: Inexperience could be a problem for the
Hunters, who lost four-year starter Steve Birman among others. On
the positive side, the lack of secured starting positions should
create a healthy competition for playing time. With a wide-open
section, there’s no reason Denfeld couldn’t be part
of the mix.
