St. Frances' Boys And Girls Basketball Teams Begin The Season Ranked No. 1. Which Is More Likely To Finish The Season There?

December 11, 2008|By GLENN GRAHAM

Last year, the Panthers ended the season No. 1 after claiming the prestigious Baltimore Catholic League championship behind the strong play of Metro Player of the Year Sean Mosley.

The standout guard is now doing his thing at Maryland, but many in the area believe this season's team might be even better. The Panthers, now under the direction of alum Mark Karcher, begin the season where they left off last year - at No. 1.

With a talented backcourt led by R.J. Williams, Dante Holmes and Wayne Sparrow; the arrival of one of the nation's finest forwards in Montrose Christian transfer Terrell Vinson; and plenty of team depth, the Panthers are in strong position to take the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference and another BCL title.

With a challenging schedule, it will be a work in progress with bumps along the way. The Panthers have to continue to adjust to Karcher, an assistant to former coach William Wells; get Vinson comfortable; and also learn to play without Mosley, who had a knack for taking over games.

With all that said, the experience returning and the new energy give the Panthers the goods to once again finish the season on top.
