Pioneers At A Glance

The Pioneers and coach Steve Reece return to the City of Palms for the first time since 2017, bringing back seven of the top eight scorers from a junior-laden team that fell to Miramar 59-55 in the 7A state semifinals. In that overtime defeat, Louisville-bound 6-5 SR Michael James (18.5 ppg, 6.1 rpg) scored 27 points before leaving with an injury. He partners with 6-4 SR Jalen Smith (11.6 ppg, 2.9 apg, 2.0 rpg) and 6-6 SR Roderick Henry (9.7 ppg, 7.3 rpg) to give Oak Ridge three of the state’s top 30 seniors. A strong supporting cast — 6-3 JR Fabio Basili (6.4 ppg, 1.9 apg), 6-6 JR Lewis Jones (5.3 ppg, 4.0 rpg), 6-2 SR Kaleb Thomas (6.3 ppg), 6-6 SR Jeremiah Bannister (5.9 ppg, 5.8 rpg) and 6-0 SR Steven Burr — becomes even more dangerous with the addition of highly-touted 6-8 FR Jayden Williams.
