WICHITA, Kan.—I’m going to start out saying this, Heights boys basketball is the top team in the state. There is no disputing this going into the season, but that fourth title could prove to be the most difficult for Perry Ellis and his Falcons to secure.
Up in Olathe, there lurks a team that appears to have as much talent as the Falcons on paper. Olathe Northwest will be led by 6-foot-10, 220-pound Kentucky commit Willie Cauley. Cauley recently inked with Coach Calipari to play for the Wildcats next season and is ranked No. 32 for the Class of 2012 by ESPN. That is five spots ahead of the 6-foot-8, 220-pound Ellis.
Then at guards, Terrance Moore will guide the Falcons as a senior and the Ravens will have Davis Reid who is getting mid-major looks.
State Basketball is four months away, but I am already excited for the potential this game could offer as a state championship game in Koch Arena.
The Ravens will be down around Wichita once this year for the annual Valley Center January Jam in the middle of January. Unfortunately Heights will not be playing in that tournament, but the Jam always has some top flight teams to watch.
