PREP BOYS' BASKETBALL: Squalicum preview

SQUALICUM STORM

Coach: Dave Dickson

Last year: 20-7 (10-3 NWC), quali-fied by did not place at Class 3A state tournament.

Players to watch: Nick Stackhouse (Sr. G/F), Nick Wallace (Sr., P), Keith Stackhouse (So., G), Patrick Voeut (So., PG), Derek Dickerson (So., G)

Outlook: The Storm lost a lot with the graduation of leading scorer Royal Prendergast, Chad Clark and Adam Dickson, but the cupboard is certainly not bare. Nick Stackhouse, the team’s second-leading scorer with 17.2 points per game is back, along with Wallace in the post. Those two seniors will be asked to lead a talented trio of sophomores that needs to learn on the fly. Squalicum will use an all-sophomore starting backcourt, with Vouet running the point. Dickerson, who is the son of former Western Washington star Tim Dickerson, will join him at guard, as will fellow sophomore Keith Stack-house, who played in 26 games for Squalicum last season and averaged 3.3 points. How quickly the sopho-mores are able to adapt into their significant varsity roles will deter-mine how deep the Storm advances this year.
