5 best players
1. Sthefany Thomas, Wesley Chapel: Clemson signee scored 25 points per game last season.
2. Kristi Hopper, Mitchell: Mustangs' leading scorer.
3. Kayli Keough, Land O'Lakes: County's next hot recruit.
4. Lauren Bullock, Gulf: New system could lead to more points.
5. Joanna Bussa, Mitchell: Will run county's most veteran team.
If we're wrong, it's because of...
1. Jeani Ducos, Wesley Chapel: Transfer has Division I-A potential.
2. Janelle Mills, Wesley Chapel: See Ducos, Jeani.
3. Amberlyn Gribbons, Ridgewood: Will see improved numbers.
4. Brittany Knipp, Land O'Lakes: Point guard played with Keough all summer.
5. Ashley Carey, Wesley Chapel: Let's not forget the Wildcat guards.
Coaches with toughest jobs
1. Jerry Stacy, Zephyrhills: You go 3-20 and lose all your starters? That's just wrong.
2. Linda Chenard, Hudson: Kerri Rulison is back as an assistant, but can you get her an extra year of eligibility?
3. John Edwards, Pasco: Welcome back. By the way, Jackie Pugh and Ebony Adams have graduated.
4. Al Sorrentino, River Ridge: Rebuilding one more time.
5. Mike Quarto, Gulf: Is it payback time for all those routs?
Coaches who are loving life
1. Warren Jones, Wesley Chapel: The county's best player and three transfers? That's just wrong.
2. Stephanie Coslin, Mitchell: Lots of recognizable faces for coach to work with.
3. Laurie Pacholke, Land O'Lakes: Eager to start first season with Gators, and for good reason.
4. Greg Finkel, Wiregrass Ranch: Fresh slate with new school always a treat.
5. Mike Quarto, Gulf: Pressure's off. Ahhhhh.
Things we're really looking forward to (and you should, too)
1. Sthefany Thomas: Players like her don't come around often. See her. Honestly.
2. Mitchell vs. Wesley Chapel: Biggest game of the year, and it's ...tonight! Well, start me up!
3. The district playoffs: We're thinking five playoff teams, at least.
4. Gulf: After one of the most dominant runs in county history, what now?
5. Kayli Keough: A 6-1 swing player? Sign us up.
