Gulfport Basketball flaunts deep senior class heading into 2019-20
Dating back to 1970, Gulfport’s nine state championships are more than any other boys basketball program from any MHSAA school from any classification.
Therefore it only makes sense to check in with the Admirals on the first week of the regular season, fresh off their 52 point thumping of Gautier on Saturday.
Gulfport is just five years removed from hoisting its last Gold Ball under Head Coach Owen Miller. The expectations haven’t changed, led by an eight-man senior class that knows how to score the basketball. “We’ve got one game down. We’ve got 29 to go that we’re guaranteed. And just the excitement of it, the excitement of starting a new journey and see where that takes us and all the ups and downs that come along with that. So it’s always fun, it’s always exciting when we start the year. And we’ve got a lot of guys that can score the basketball. And in high school basketball, sometimes that’s a struggle to have guys that can score. And we’ve got five or six that can really score the ball. So our margin for error this year is bigger than it’s been in five years. And that’s simply because of our personnel.”
The Admirals return to action tomorrow with 7 p.m. tip against Amite from Louisiana.
