Trying to build from last season's 18-8 record which added a Regional Runner-Up trophy, the Buccs came up short of climbing the mountain top again.
With virtually the entire team back from last season, the Buccs were hoping to get back to the Regional Finals and get a crack at earning a ticket to Columbus. It wasn't meant to be, however, as the Buccs fell to Springfield Catholic in the Regional Tournament.
There were many high points to the season as the Buccs captured their 8th Miami County Holiday Tournament Championship, a Southwestern Rivers Conference Championship, a Class A Sectional Championship, and a Class A District Championship.
Todd Alexander again led the Buccs in scoring and rebounding with 394 points (15.8 avg.) and 190 rebounds. Steve Dunn knocked down 377 points (15.1 avg.) and dished out 54 assists. Radar Graves added 257 points (10.3 avg.), 141 rebounds and 57 assists. Jack Hilligoss grabbed 138 rebounds and 188 points (7.7 avg.) while Tony Perrine contributed with 112 rebounds and 141 points (5.6 avg.).
The Buccs will have to rebuild next season as they loose their entire varsity squad with the exception of Scott McDade. They do, however, have a group of talented players from this season's unbeaten 20-0 junior varsity squad.
