Fury Wilde team finished the season with a 35-8 record. We started the season by winning the Comets shootout. The team also won two other tournaments in the Scheels League session 1, followed by the Fury Shootout. Overall, it was a very productive season. This team had multiple players step up through the year, and everyone bought into playing team basketball. It was fantastic seeing players play for each other. Here’s a quick breakdown of each player:
Isaac Cordes: Fantastic floor general who did a great job handling pressure and facilitating the ball. Made major improvements in the areas of shooting and finishing. Led the team in blocked shots. Was notorious for putting kids in spin cycle. One of the better PGs in the state.
Nik Domier: At 6’5 Nik can defend multiple positions. However, Nik excels at rebounding and finishing around the hoop. Nik has fantastic instincts and is one of the best at his positions. He is one that you don’t have to run a play for but still has a huge impact on the game.
Hudson Hochstedler: Fought back from a significant back injury and made an impact on this team in the last 3 tournaments. Hudson is a natural leader who loves to compete. He’s an intelligent well-rounded player that fits the mold of this team. Shoots the 3-point shot at a high percentage. Now back to full strength, Hudson should have a big Junior season at STMA.
Preston Johnson: Preston fought through a few significant injuries this past season only to come back and be one of the top defenders on this team. Preston is a relentless competitor and will give up his body to make a play for the team. Outside of his tough-nosed defense, he has greatly improved his all-around offensive game.

Isaiah Mahal- Isaiah just might be one of the best natural shooters in the state. Shot the 3 at a very high percentage. Plays with a high IQ and can also play multiple positions. Isaiah is the ultimate team player who brings a positive attitude to each practice and game. Isaiah is still
growing and has a lot of potential in his game.
