Kalamazoo Christian finished 18-8 last season and made it as far as the Class C state quarterfinal. The Comets graduated four seniors from last season’s team, including their leading scorer, Alex Visser. They bring back six seniors and one junior who saw significant varsity time, including first-team SAC Valley selection Jordan Katje.
Bloomingdale went 14-7 last season in a huge turnaround from the five combined wins they had over the previous three seasons. The Cardinals graduated top-scorer and rebounder Zaquarius Jeffries, who earned honorable mention All-State. Notably back are first-team SAC Central pick Karl Butler and SAC Central honorable mention Michael Ellis.
