While losing five seniors with many of them contributing largely to the Knoxville Boys Basketball Squad…the Panthers will return two very important players from this year’s team that will be called on to do just as or more for next year. Kieren Nichols was the team’s leading scorer with 19.8 points per game and also led the team in assists with 93. Also coming back is Ben Olson. The junior played in his first starting role this season and responded scoring five points per game and was second in rebounds with 114. Coach Jeff Larson tells KNIA/KRLS there will be several players battling for playing roles next season, but he is glad to have Olson and Nichols back next year.
