Team Preview:

Written by: David Bashore

Shoshone was close to figuring it out in 2014-15. The young Indians squad finished 9-14 but was getting competitive in its entertaining style of basketball. With the core of that team back this year, the Indians hope that 2015-16 is the year that playoff basketball returns to Lincoln County.

Shoshone returns two key players among the returnees: Jose Regalado and Devin Bollar, who combined for over 26 points and 10 rebounds a night between the two of them last season. Both are juniors, as is the bulk of this team, and coach Rob Waite hopes the light is at the end of the tunnel this season as it relates to the team’s progress.

The Indians aren’t the biggest bunch, but they’re athletic and have good shooters. They like to hit a lot of 3-pointers and pile up the points. Where they struggled last season was in a lack of movement which stagnated the offense and resulted in low-percentage shots, something Waite hopes to help his players improve upon this season.

Defensively Shoshone is as energetic as it is on offense, flying around and causing the opponent to rush its offense. Though the defense is frenetic, it wasn’t as cohesive in 2014-15 as Waite wants it to be this season. Shoshone could stand to improve at rotation and close-out defense, though those are things it is confident will come in time.

Getting another year of experience will help Shoshone, but other teams in the conference – Valley and Oakley, the two representatives at state last year, for starters – are in the same boat in terms of having significant portions of their teams back. For the Indians to get closer to those two and away from the pack, they’ll have to continue to jell rather than just rely on extra experience.
