Hillsboro boys hoping youngsters can replace departed basketball stars

(Hillsboro) The Hillsboro Hawks put together a tremendous boys’ basketball season last year, but things will look much different this time around.

4 all-conference senior starters in Mark Moore, Garrett Pinkley and Ethan and Evan Worley are gone.

Hawks head coach Dan Johnson says the unique circumstances of 2020 haven’t made it any easier to appraise his ball club.

But along with his few returners, Johnson says a few second-year players are starting to flash some potential.

Hillsboro won its season opener 61-53 over DeSoto, the same team they face Monday night in the first game of their annual Gene Steighorst Invitational.
