What's New: Expectations – The Firebirds finished second last season in the GMC, but this team has its top three scorers back and will be expected to finish at or near the top.
Outlook: The Firebirds have a trio of experienced guards back that were the top three scorers last season in Williams, Barnes and Boykins. That has league coaches expecting big things from this team. “We’ve got a lot of key contributors from last year’s team back – the great majority of them, to be honest with you,” Van Winkle said. Boykins scored 16.6 points per game during the regular season last year and added a team best 6.2 rebounds per game with 1.9 assists. Barnes scored 13.9 points per game with 2.2 assists and Williams added 10.9 points and 2.3 assists. “Obviously we’re cautiously optimistic because of what we have returning. But obviously there’s a lot of work that we need to do.
