Burlington-Edison Tigers boys' basketball preview capsule




Coach: Jake Martyn (third season)

Last year: Finished fifth in the Northwest Conference with an 8-4 record. Went 2-1 during the 2A District 1/2 Tournament, ended season after going 1-2 at the 2A State Tournament and finished 17-10 overall.

Players to watch: Isaak Davies (sr., G); Rudy Mataya (sr., G); Carlos Navarro (sr., G); Blake Rawlins (jr., G); Tarren Lautenbach (jr., P); Nic Metcalf (jr. F)

Outlook: Perennial power Burlington-Edison is a much different team than a year ago, Tigers coach Jake Martyn said. Burlington-Edison graduated a lot of size but returns first-team all-conference guard Isaak Davies (15.0 points per game) and guard Rudy Mataya (5.3). "We plan on playing a much more up-temp style than we have in the last couple of years," coach Jake Martyn said in an interview with the Skagit Valley Herald, "and I feel we have the guards to be pretty good at it." Senior guard Carlos Navarro (2.4) is expected to start in the backcourt, and the Tigers will need Burlington-Edison's tallest players, 6-foot-3 junior post Tarren Lautenbach and 6-foot-3 forward Nic Metcalf, to play big in the paint.
