Season Preview: Fox Chapel Boys Basketball

Posted on:

Fox Chapel will enter the 2017-18 boys basketball season as the defending Section 2-AAAAAA regular season champion. The Foxes compiled a 19-4 overall record and 12-2 mark in the section.

They advanced to the WPIAL quarterfinals where they lost to Woodland Hills, 52-47.

Head coach Zach Skrinjar is entering his ninth season as the Foxes head coach, and will have two starters returning.

Both starters coming back are senior Carson Cohen and junior Ben Kelly. Cohen averaged 16 points per game last season and led the team in assists. Kelly averaged 12 points per game.

The Foxes will also rely more heavily on senior Micah Morris. Morris was a first-team Allegheny Nine Conference selection at running back during the football season.

Also looking to make an impact will be junior Ryan Kerr, junior Noah Marks, senior Dom McGriff, sophomore Arnold Vento, senior Justin Supsura, and sophomore Will Livingston.

Fox Chapel will begin its season against Imani Christian on Friday in the Plum Tip-Off Tournament.
