I'd like him to be an ambassador for the sport and a great role model for the school.

He'll come back with a bigger knowledge and understanding of the big picture. He'll get a feel for how much more complex it's going to be against college players. He'll understand he's a representative of the community. And against international competition he'll meet some of the best in the world in his age bracket.

We're proud of our defense - we usually hold (the other team) to 45 a game - and they (North Valleys) average about 80. It's gonna be a battle. We haven't been successful with high-scoring teams. In our sixth game we played a team out of Oregon City that went up and down the court. We didn't match up well with them. Same with a Logan, Utah team, which beat us convincingly.
