Gregg Rosenberg’s ArizonaVarsity.com 6A Preseason Predictions
#1 Pinnacle-Coach Charles Wilde has another talented starting five led by one of the top or arguably the top player in state in Arizona commit 6-3 senior PG Nico Mannion. He has the ability to take over games at any moment. Alongside Mannion will be seniors 6-1 PG Trent Brown and 6-6 SF Jordan Mains. Both can and will have big games during the year to take some pressure off of Mannion. Both will be playing D1 hoops after HS as well. The man in the middle could have a breakout year in 6-9 junior C Tosh Baker. Baker has legit size, strength and skill to have a nice inside/outside compliment that all teams covet. Without superstar QB/SG Spencer Rattler, they will look to a few players to fill that last starting spot and provide some depth with juniors 6-0 PG Marcus Libman, 6-3 W Spencer Allen and 6-3 senior W Keegan Schenk. All 3 can shoot it plus defend. Mannion and Brown will set the tone for the Pioneers with their shooting and decision making.
