CINCINNATI – Ohio high school boys’ basketball season starts official practice in less than a month.
And while postseason discussion continues for high school football, it’s not too early to look at the top teams and players in the area for this upcoming winter.
WCPO.com high school sports reporter Mike Dyer sat down with Walnut Hills coach Ricardo Hill and longtime Moeller coach Carl Kremer for a discussion not only about their respective teams but what fans should expect in the city, region and state this season.
Hill is entering his fifth year at Walnut Hills and has a 76-24 record. Kremer, who started coaching in the 1989-90 season, has a career record of 491-153.
Moeller had a 23-4 record last season and the Crusaders were a Division I regionals semifinalist. Walnut Hills (16-7 last season) was a district finalist.
Both of these coaches have a great deal of respect for the other program. In fact, Hill called Kremer before the Eagles went to the state tournament in Columbus in March 2013.
The programs have most recently played each other in 2014 and they often have multiple common opponents each winter.
You will hear the coaches’ perspective on the top teams and players, the trends in the game and how they approach college recruiting in addition to other aspects of basketball in preparation for the 2016-17 season.
