Indians At A Glance

Coach Mike Thompson’s crew was essentially the lineal national champion in 2018-19, running the table against opponents from nine other states and winning eight games at the City of Palms (a field that included IMG Academy), Bass Pro Tournament of Champions (Springfield, Mo.) and HoopHall Classic. These Indians return City of Palms MVP, MaxPreps National Player of the Year and showstopping, Auburn-bound 6-1 SR Sharife Cooper (28.6 ppg, 8.7 apg, 6 rpg, 4.1 spg) – but little else. Two high-profile arrivals via transfer, 7-0 SR Dylan Cardwell (Oak Hill Academy) and 6-5 JR Camron McDowell (Lincoln Academy NC). Two other returners, 6-0 SOPH Braden Sparks and 6-2 SR Israel Palmer, will add some much-needed depth. Cooper had a 42-point breakout in an 83-81 overtime win over Hudson Catholic in the 2017 City of Palms quarterfinals, and McEachern is 7-1 in two COP appearances.
