Marysville head coach Stan Easter expressed to the Dispatch that his team is where he expected them to be at. He told the Dispatch that the addition of most of his roster coming from football season is still working towards getting back into basketball shape.

Indians junior guard Dennis Syders is the main one to bring the ball up the floor as his role changed from last season as a defensive specialist to point guard this season.

Syders told the Dispatch the transition is a work in progress but he is confident that he will be comfortable with the ball in his hands. In the opening game versus Williams, Syders shot 70% from the field as most of his points came from lay-ups from fast break opportunities.
