Notable Four players return who started games last season led by Stanley, who averaged 17 points per game. … Stanley has added core strength and improved his outside shot in the offseason and is getting looks from several Division II colleges. … Olsen likes the way this team rebounds, an aspect that has been a problem in year’s past, especially with the emergence of Fincher and Manual. … Ty Olsen returns as multi-year starter at point guard and provides a scoring threat along with a playmaker. … Lost in the first round of the state tournament last season. … Opens the season by hosting Siloam Springs on Tuesday.
Quotable: “Four or five years ago, I thought that team was special unselfishly —the way they shared the ball and played together. I think this team is even better in that respect. I think we’re in as good a situation to start a season as we’ve ever been at Heritage.”
