Oliver Springs comes into 2016-17 without their top two scorers from a year ago.  In order to move up in District 4-A the Bobcats will rely on their experience in the backcourt.  They will feature a lot of balance on the floor with all five starters being capable of leading the team in scoring.  Complicating matters is the fact that District 4-A will once again be tough as several teams bring back a lot of firepower.

Coach Ingram says it will be a great season if: 

“If we can get solid production inside on both the offensive and defensive end, as well as find a go to guy late in games.”

Coach Ingram says it will be a tough season if: 

“If we struggle on the perimeter (knocking down shots and defending it).”
