Lakeside head coach Jason Gould has a number of players back from last year.
"We feel like we should be ok this year," he said. "We have a lot of experience coming back. We have our best player and leading scorer T.J. Carpenter coming back as well as Jerrell Tellis and Tarus Erving. Jerrell is a quick guard that leads our defense and Tarus is a consistent post player."
Minden High head coach Alan Shaw, on the other hand, will be starting basically a whole new starting five.
"This will be a rebuilding season as we lost six of our top seven players from last year," he said. "We have a young and inexperienced, but hard working group. The only returning starter from last year is D.J. Wallace, who went down with a knee injury in December. So we basically lost all five starters."
