Central boys basketball starts off its season with a 6-1 record after its most recent victory against Metea Valley. The team’s one loss against Grayslake Central High School was caused by a last-second three-point shot.

Pete Kramer, head boys basketball coach, is looking positively toward the season and believes that the roster is well equipped this year. He explains the team’s methods for the season to ensure success.

“I think just staying consistent, just staying positive and fighting through the tough times when we struggle to score a little bit just to stay on course and stick with the plan,” Kramer said.

Senior Thomas Dahl is hopeful with the physical advantages of the roster this year.

“Offensively we play really well,” Dahl said. “This year we have a lot more shooters. Everyone on the floor can shoot, which wasn’t the case last year. We all play well together.”

Kramer describes the team’s diversity and how that will affect their season.

“I think this is a fun group to coach and a fun team to watch, just because we have a lot of different weapons,” Kramer said. “We have kids who can shoot the ball and we have kids who can dunk the ball.”

The team’s next meet will be the Dekalb Chuck Dayton Holiday Classic tournament starting at 1:45 p.m. on Dec. 27 at Dekalb High School.
