Adirondack League boys basketball preview: Granville Golden Horde

Team: Granville

Head coach: Grant Sharrow

Last year’s record: 17-5

Playoff result: Lost in Sectional quarterfinals to Saratoga Central Catholic

Returning players: Bart Bartholomew (senior guard/forward), Nick Sumner (senior guard), Taylor Bourn (junior guard), Jarrett Williams (junior guard), TJ Wilson (junior guard)

Graduated: Matthew Parker, Jeremy Aramal

Newcomers: Josh Oakman (sophomore guard), Cody Rice (junior forward), Derek Lee’s (sophomore forward), Nick Andrus (senior forward), Izick Tucker (junior forward)

Outlook for the season: Balance will be the key to Granville’s offense once again this season. The Golden Horde return four players who averaged eight or more points per game.

What Granville must overcome is a lack of height. Many of the players on this year’s roster are under 6 feet tall.

“Granville does not have much size, but will make up for it with their quickness,” said Sharrow.
