BLUE RIBBON COLLEGE BASKETBALL YEARBOOK

Forecast: 2nd
Analysis Excerpts: [Scott] Sutton is happy to be back in the Summit … his backcourt is strong; [Korey] Billbury and [Obi] Emegano are all-conference talents capable of scoring 20 points a night … the Golden Eagles should contend for the league title as long as Emegano stays healthy and their bigs produce.
