Eugene, Ore. -- North Eugene boy's basketball team finished last season with a 5-19 record, under first year head coach Bill Wagner.

"We are head and shoulders of where we were this time last year," Wagner said. "We had most of our core team come back. And this is a group that works really hard. Their effort is tremendous and they are continuing to get better and better as far as ability and skill development."

The players are fired up about the start of a new season as well, hoping to use their past mistakes as motivation to play better this year.

"It's a very big motivator. We're ready to get back out there," Brennan DeGarmo, a junior guard on the team. "It still proves that we can get back out and compete with the top of the league. We views last year as more of a rebuilding season becuase we were pretty young. So this year we are looking forward becuase we are more experienced and reayd to go."

The Highlanders' season starts December 4th, at home against Central at 6:45 p.m.
