New Heights team members included: Gabe Akins, Max Oyer, Tristin Tillman, Rico Stafford, Connor Woods, CJ Saunders, Xavier Simpson, Elijah Pugsley and Caleb Mitchell. Reports have it that “point guards CJ Saunders and Xavier Simpson controlled the offense and played lock down defense,” while “Caleb Mitchell rebounded well and had a lot of blocks”.
