Roundball Preview: Breathitt County Bobcats

JACKSON, Ky. (WYMT) - The Breathitt County Bobcats may have to adjust to a few changes this season but there is one constant.

New head coach Jon Collins will have plenty of size to work with in his first year. With senior Wes Noble on the outside and junior Luke Chaney down low, he expects the Bobcats' size to give their opponents lots of trouble this season.

"Our size really is mobile, so we're able to guard some people man-to-man that maybe some other folks with tall people can't; contest shots out on the perimeter as well as down low," says Collins, who takes over for Denny Fugate on the Breathitt County sideline. "No easy shots. No free shots. That's something we work on a lot."

"I really don't see many people stopping Luke (Chaney) down low. He's 6' 7". He's a big guy," says junior guard Braxton Whitmore. "We have a good shooting guard, Wes (Noble). He can shoot over a lot of people."

"I think our size is what really will help this year," says Noble. "I just got to get (my teammates) open shots and kind of create for myself too, probably."

"Last year we hustled and that's just a big part that we're going to take in this year," says Chaney. "We're a lot stronger, have a good mindset, and it's going to take over into this year."
