The Silo Rebels enter this year will a roster full of experience.

Coach Dax Simon has six returning seniors that will hit the hardwood this season. With seniors Leonard Sandler, Hunter Jackson, Kendall Shives, Lance House, Garrett Hayes and Justin Baxter, it’s a team that has “good senior leadership.”

“We are lucky to have a bunch of the kids back. We returned everybody off of last years team. So all of our key players are back this year.”

The Rebels are looking to have a good regular season ahead of them and a deep run into the playoffs. With a senior laden squad, the Rebels have a good chance to build off of last season and take that next step in the playoffs.

Silo defense will be tougher and stronger this year. Experience is the key and so is height. All of the Rebels post players are over 6’1” which will help the Rebels clog up the middle and force teams to rethink driving the lane. Making their opponents take more outside shots.

Having towering players in the middle will give the Rebels the edge in rebounding and that will spark an offense. It will allow the Rebels to control the tempo of the game. And good play on defense gives them the choice to either run-and-gun or play half court.

“The players are little bigger, little stronger and more mature. We have excellent team chemistry and continue to build on that,” said Simon.
