With several experienced players returning from a team that shared the Greater Catholic League-South championship with Elder and La Salle, Moeller High School returns a deep basketball roster for 2015-16.
Playing without injured center Nate Fowler (now at Butler), the Crusaders were 18-9 (4-2 GCL-South) in their 15th straight winning season under Carl Kremer.
Moeller returns senior guards Trey McBride and Nate Georgeton and junior 6-foot-5 guard Riley Voss as starters. McBride averaged 11.1 points per game and 6.5 rebounds and was first-team GCL, second-team all-district and honorable mention in Southwest Ohio.
Georgeton was second-team GCL, averaging 7 points per game while dishing out 5.6 assists. Voss as a sophomore was second-team GCL averaging 6 points and 5.7 rebounds per game.
Adding depth are 6-foot-7 senior forward Sam McCracken, senior shooting guard Kenny Wead and 6-foot-5 junior guard Keegan McDowell.
"We have a team with considerable experience and great leadership," Kremer said. "If we continue to grow collectively, we can be a very good team."
Moeller starts the season Nov. 27 at Taft and then hosts Kings in their home opener Dec. 1. Dec. 26-31 they will participate in the Beach Ball Classic in Myrtle Beach, S.C. The Crusaders feature several college prospects.
"Nate Georgeton is signed with Division II Northwood," Kremer said. "Trey McBride and Sam McCracken are still involved in the recruiting process, primarily with DII and NAIA schools. Underclassmen Keegan McDowell, Riley Voss and Isaiah Payton (sophomore) all have offers from DI or DII programs." [Read More]
