Numbers should not be a problem for the Knoxville Boys Basketball program in the future. Along with the recent success with three straight winning seasons and a 16-8 campaign this year plus an outright South Central Conference championship, they will be a lot of competition not only from returning varsity starters, but also players from the J-V unit wanting spot on the varsity squad. Coach Jeff Larson tells KNIA/KRLS Sports the J-V team has some players that are hungry for a varsity spot next season. Larson says he will lean on heavily his two returning starters, Patrick Crawford and Ben Wallace to shoulder much of the leadership next season.
