Old Mill Patriots 1990-91

Anne Arundel County Hoops At A Glance

December 05, 1990

Head coach: Paul Bunting (sixth season)

Assistants: Jim Phelan and Bernie Edwards

1989-1990 record: 17-7, lost to Broadneck in region semifinals.

Returnees: Seniors Damien Sewell (forward), Will Crowder (forward) and Shawn Craig (center); junior Ravon Austin (guard).

Newcomer: Senior Nijui Truesdale (guard).

Coach's outlook: "We have some good candidates up from the JV. I'd be pleased with a .500 season. We have depth -- we go nine or 10 deep, like last year -- but the depth isn't as experienced. The players are working real hard, but we're small. A lot depends on what happens early. If we get thumped in three or four games, we could be in trouble. It also depends on what everybody else has. If a lot of teams are down, it could make for an interesting year."

Anne Arundel County Sun outlook: The Patriots are small, but unlike last year, they also don't have the leapers who could compensate for their lack of height. Old Mill must play an uptempo style and hustle for 32 minutes every game to stay with taller, more talented opponents. Sewell needs to emerge as the leader and primary scorer, and fellow returnees Crowder and the 6-foot-3 Craig must have an impact, particularly inside. Old Mill should slip some this year, unless the group of players from the junior varsity team that won 17 games last season adapt quickly to the varsity level.
