COLUMBIANA, Ohio (WKBN) – The Clippers graduated their standout Nick Million last spring. Million led the team in scoring (18.9), rebounding (5.8), steals (2.0), and three-point percentage (38.4%) a year ago. No. 0 set five school records including most three-point baskets in a game (9) and a season (72) along with most points scored in a single game (41).

This season, Columbiana will look to three returning starters – Ian Less (4.1 ppg, 2.8 apg), Devin Daugherty (7.7 ppg, 5.3 rpg) and Alex Eusebio (3.8 ppg) – all juniors to elevate their games and contribute once again this season.

The team also will have Joe Guido, Maddox Brown (4.5 ppg, 1.3 apg), Aaron Marcum, Nick Gallo and Cameron Clancy in the fold this season as well.

“The expectations are the same as they are every year,” states coach Todd Johnson. “We want to improve each day throughout the season and become a more well-rounded, better basketball team then we were the day before.”

The Clippers have a nice foundation ready to prove themselves.

“There are a couple of different boys capable of becoming our team leader,” Johnson says. “I’m looking forward to seeing who takes on that role as we [approach the season].”

The Clippers open the season on November 25 at Mineral Ridge.
