SH boys basketball

The Tigers are back-to-back NICL-West champions but with all that they lost, SH might fly under the radar this winter. Head coach John Phillips will look to Waylen Butler, Ryan Walters, Mason Sheldahl and Wyatt Hollingsworth in his first season at the helm.

With nearly a completely different lineup and a new face on the sidelines, South Hardin is not going to be the favorite for a three-peat title in the NICL-West – but that doesn’t mean the players and coaches don’t believe it’s an obtainable goal.

“With me being new and graduating some pretty powerful seniors and some really good talented athletes, I don’t know if we have a target on our back. Since I’ve been here and watching the sports, not even coaching, there’s always this competitive spirit between this conference. And they love to beat each other,” said new Tiger coach John Phillips. “From that aspect, yes, because of the competition. But, I don’t think people are picking us as the favorite.”
