DECATUR -- The LSA Lions reached new heights in 2016-17 with 24 wins under then-head coach Dave Kreps. Now with Hall of Fame baseball coach Tom Saunches taking the reigns, the Lions are primed for another eye-popping win total.

LSA (12-2) features high-scoring wing Grant Karsten, a hot-shooting junior whose game has developed rapidly in his three seasons with the varsity squad. Mix in scrappy double-double machine Ezra Schaal and you have a giant-killing lineup that plays much bigger than Schaal's 5-foot-11 stature. The veteran squad also boasts wings Garrett Guske and Cam Walls to go with guards like junior Mike Fiala and seniors Tanner Heick and Xavier Todd.
