I know it is still early and football is going on, but basketball practice for boys officially gets underway in 10 days. This is how I see the conference shaping up barring any key injuries

1. Kimberly (THe Papermakers have been consistently in the top three in the conference for the past five seasons. With Levi Nienhaus-Borchert returning along with the emergence of junior Jake Buchanan Kimberly will have a great inside out game is season. Not to mention Reed Miller transferring from Marshfield will help.

2. Kaukauna (Losing McCabe, Kurey and Carl will be immensely challenging this season, but the Ghosts still have a ton of talent coming back. Players like KEaton Ferris, Donovan Ivory, Luke Eiting and Logan Jedwabney all played huge roles last season and will look to do that again this year.

3. Oshkosh North ( The Spartans were a force last season led by Haliburton and Anderson. North will have a different look this season as most of last years starting roster is gone. Look for Dylan Krumrei to have a break out season this year as the North tradition will continue to churn out strong basketball.

4. Appleton West ( The Terrors have quietly continued to rise in the standings as of late and should do that once again. With Mahoney leading the way once again, West should be able to battle with the top teams weekly.

5. Neenah (The ROckets haven't been as strong as they have been in the past, but continue to b a competitive group. THat will continue once again this season as an athletic group of kids could bring matchup problems for some teams.

6. Oshkosh West ( The Wildcats have been jekyl and Hyde in recent seasons showing great potential one week and horrible play next week. Which team will show up more this season will determine the success of this team as they will look to get the tallest player in the FVA more involved this season.

7. Hortonville (The Polar Bears are an intriguing team this season that certainly have the potential to move up in the standings. Finding away to win games with a lack of size could be a challenge, but expect them to play well down the stretch making them a tough out come march.

8. Appleton East (Former Menasha head man Adam Maulick steps in to take over a program that went through a spirial act of adversity late in the season. With all that in the past and a group of players eager to get the Patriots on the map once again, expect a new attitude from East this season.

9. Fond du Lac (The Cardinals suffered a tough blow as Mark Ziebel stepped down as head coach this past summer leaving Fondy scrambling for a head coach. In comes Eric Henry on an interm basis as he looks to take over team that took major steps back last year.

10. Appleton North ( Anytime a team goes 0-23 and 8-82 over a certain stretch of games, finding consistency is always a step in the right direction. Expect new head coach Chris Kellet to preach that heavily this season with hopes more wins will follow.
