Rogers High
Coach: Lamont Frazier
Last Year’s Record 7-20 (0-14 7A-West)
Key Players F Tanner Dake (6-1, Sr.), F Garrett Dake (6-4, Sr.), G Jake Early (5-9, Jr.), Aaron Jones (6-1, Sr.), F Jaden Uecker (6-5, Sr.), F Baylor Lacewell (6-3, Sr.), F Amonta Jones (6-2, Sr.), G Elliot Paschal (6-2, Soph.), G Drew Miller (6-3, Soph.).
Notable Frazier was hired in the spring to replace Wayne Herren. … Mounties return three players who saw significant playing time for a team that finished last in the 7A-West last season. … Sophomores Paschal and Miller could start. … Brothers Tanner and Garrett Dake could also play significant roles, but both are still playing for the football team. … Garrett averaged 7 points and almost 4 rebounds per game a year ago. … Jones and Uecker are returners who could see action. … Lacewell is new to the program and could see significant playing time. … Mounties open the season Nov. 20 at Huntsville.
Quotable “Right now our main goals have been to keep things as simple as possible on both ends of the floor and get our intensity levels to match up on both ends of the floor. I think that’s huge and if I had to err on side or the other obviously it’s on the defensive end where our intensity needs to be greater.”
