Inexperienced lineup ready to produce

Frazee boys basketball team: Row 1: Cory Wokasch, Jesse Miosek, Cody Nordquist, Zach Nelson, Malik Gill. Row 2: Austin Torma, Tristan Watchorn, Tyler Olson, Brady Bellefeuille, Matt Tangen, Abe Johannes, Alex Courneya.

Although the Frazee boys' basketball team will have the advantage of having five seniors on the roster, experience is still a luxury for the Hornets.

After graduating several seniors last year with plenty of game time experience, including their all-time leading rebounder in Daniel Janu, the Hornets enter the 2012-13 season thin in seasoning.

"Our goals this year is to gain some good experience for our seniors and let them have a good final season," said Frazee head coach Jason Reierson.

The five seniors who will be looked upon to contribute include forwards Jesse Miosek, Tyler Olson, Alex Courneya, guards Zach Nelson and Cody Nordquist.

But the Hornets do return experience in junior forward Cory Wokasch and sophomore guard Matt Tangen.

"Both are good shooters and will be our go-to guys," Reierson said. "Matt takes care of the ball well at point guard and doesn't commit turnovers."

The Hornets will be relying on their perimeter game to loosen up the middle, since size is not as prevalent.

"Rebounding will be a concern because of our size," the Frazee coach said. "We don't have a lot of post presence, so it will be important to stay aggressive with our man-to-man defense."
