(CRYSTAL CITY) Lee Richardson is back for his 2nd year as the Crystal City boys basketball head coach with a deeper roster and higher expectations heading into the 2019-2020 season.

The Hornets return last year’s All-District post player Nate Denby as well as Coach Richardson’s son, Drew, who was also All-District. Coach Richardson believes that those two are in for outstanding senior campaigns.

In the last few weeks of practice, Coach Richardson has noticed that athleticism has improved greatly from top to bottom.

Coach Richardson adds that fun is what he wants his guys to have this year.

Besides Denby and Richardson, the Hornets will have Hunter Bassin, Blake Eisenbeis, Logan Anderson, Chase Coleman, Donovan Tullock, Calloway Dashner, and Nate Pruneau.

Crystal City boys basketball tips off the season in the Rolla “Duke” Herbert Classic on Monday, December 2nd as the 5th seed against Saxony Lutheran. Game time is 6:30. It will be broadcast on the MYMOINFO SPORTS STREAM.
