After winning a state championship in boys soccer, the Mansfield Christian boys basketball team will try to defend their MBC basketball championship won a season ago with many of the same players who competed on the soccer field this fall. The Flames under head coach John Kurtz return several players from last year in junior Stevie Brown, senior Austin Grimes, junior Kendal Cross, junior Brandon Mount and senior Ryan Smith. Coach Kurtz says the emphasis this preseason has been on shooting and rebounding and good play at the defensive end of the floor.

Senior Ryan Smith, a member of the soccer team, commented that once the celebrating was over, the players coming back made a quick a quick turn around to basketball the following Monday. The Flames will open at home on December 5th, against Crestview. Kurtz says it will be important to get the first game to build confidence with Colonel Crawford, Danville and Clear Fork after their opener. MCS finsihed last season at 13-8 overall and 9-1 in the Mid-Buckeye Conference.
