The team did not perform as well as they did last year with a record of 17-6 but they have a lot of room to grow considering they are only losing two seniors and have only one junior.

The  team suffered a few bumps and losses but it looking forward to next years season.

“In the next few years Tyrone basketball will be stout,” said Ferguson.
