Inexperienced Tigers prepare to hit the court

The Lebanon Tigers boys basketball team will look much different from years past. The past three years, the Tigers have been filled with upperclassmen and experience. But after losing six regulars off of last year's team this year's installment of the Tigers will be filled with youth and inexperience. "Our kids are working fairly hard," Lebanon head coach Albert Hendrix said. "We have a young, inexperienced group. Nick Starkey is really the only one with a lot of varsity experience. It is going to be a tough road to hoe early in the season and all we can do is try and get better." Hendrix said the goals are a little different than in years' past. But the main goal is still there — get better as the year goes on. "We want to be very skilled by the end of the year," Hendrix said. "We want to get better fundamentally and we want to grow and mature as the season goes on. The tough thing for us on our schedule is early in the season as we are learning and trying to get better, those are some games we should be competitive in and have a chance to win. As we get down the stretch we are going to be playing some good, big schools and we have to hope we don't have a step back playing those schools because even though we are better, we are going to be facing tough teams."
