16. Saginaw (15-6), A: Three starters return for the Trojans and coach Julian Taylor has a good mix of seniors and juniors. Eddie Thigpen (6-5) is a left-handed junior who averaged eight points and eight rebounds. Junior Ronquavis Southard (6-0) is a long-range shooter who averaged 20 points and eight assists. The others three starters are expected to be seniors. Jalen Davis (6-1) is an off guard who averaged nine points and is the leader on defense. Expect Terrance Crumpton (6-7) to show much improvement. Last season was his first on varsity. Jordan Coffey (6-1) is a pass-first point guard. Barrion Adams is the top reserve in the backcourt and the X-factor could well be junior Henry Stieghts (6-4), a transfer from Carrollton who will be eligible in January.   - State Champs


The Trojans won four straight district titles- with a state championship and state semifinal appearance - before seeing that streak snapped last season in Arthur Hill's run to the finals. Ronquavious Southward returns a year after being one of the team's most experienced players as a sophomore. The junior now has college recruiters on his heels and the Trojans also welcome Dream Team forward and fellow junior Henry Speight, who transferred from Carrollton. -
