Season Preview: St. Xavier

St. Xavier Head Boys Basketball Coach Kevin Klein
St. Xavier returns seven of their top eight players from last year's 7th Region Runner-Up team. This includes their 2nd leading scorer Alex Jones, 3rd leading scorer Robert Shaw and 4th leading scorer and leading rebounder Brock Kiesler.

St. Xavier also returns Justin Moody, William Glasford, Charles Walker and Austin Clemons. Coach Klein also mentioned Sophomores Andrew Marquess and Lucas Miller as players who could possibly contribute this year.

St. Xavier hasn't been to the state tournament since 1995 and Coach Klein says this years team is the most ready of any team he's had to get there. "We're going to approach every single game, every night thinking we can win."

Senior Brock Kiesler agrees with that sentiment saying, "We wanna do big things and that's what people are expecting." Senior William Glasford adds in, "... the next step is state so that's what I think people are expecting."

Senior C Brock Kiesler is one player Coach Klein thinks will lead his team
Coach Klein thinks Seniors Brock Kiesler, Justin Moody, William Glasford, Christian Hardy, Alex Jones and Brad Browning will all help lead this team. But mentions Brock, Justin and Christian as the guys who will really reel all the players in.

Here's the full interview with St. Xavier Head Coach Kevin Klein:

- Sr. C Brock Kiesler is currently talking with Ohio Dominican, University of Southern Indiana, Bellarmine and Lipscomb University. He's working on his footwork, finishing around the rim and being able to stretch out further with his shooting.

-Sr. G William Glasford isn't currently hearing from any colleges but is working on expanding his game, being able to drive and shoot and his jump shot.


I wanna thank Coach Klein and the St. Xavier players for welcoming me at practice this past Thursday and I look forward to watching them this season.
