(HILLSBORO, Mo.) The start of basketball season means the return of star guard Koby Klaus for the Grandview Eagles as their boy’s team looks for a bounce back year.
Klaus missed all of last season with a torn ACL injury after being named the conference player of the year as a sophomore when he averaged 22.7 points per game. Klaus will look to help turnaround a Grandview team that won just three games last year going 3-21.+++
Despite the tough record, the Eagles had the opportunity to play some younger players who now have some experience at the varsity level. Among the returners includes senior guard Anthony Dolde, and Dru Stanz, with junior Colten McAnally also returning.+++
Klaus will have an opportunity to play off the ball a little more this year with Dolde set to help out at the point guard position. Head coach Chris Miller said it will still be a process to figure out how to incorporate Klaus back into the lineup…+++
With the return of Klaus, Grandview has their hopes set high, but Miller adds his team needs to prove their worth in a tough conference to be playing their best ball late in the year…+++
Grandview opens up their 2017 season with an early test against the Northwest Lions at home Monday night. The two teams played last year with the Lions topping Grandview 57-32. Check out the sports scoreboard Monday night and tune to KTJJ for the 10 p.m., news to hear their score.+++
