Mingus Union High School’s boys basketball team will have a bit of a different look than in the past few years.

Heading into the season it was set to have just four seniors. The sudden addition of five more to the cast of Marauders has in a way flipped the script for head coach Dave Beery; he now has depth, length and athleticism to count on that he had not had before.

Mingus Union High School senior Tyler Kelly took the next step to accomplishing his dreams when he signed his National Letter of Intent to play at the University of New Mexico on Thursday, Nov. 9.

Kelly said he will be used as a utility player for the Lobos, an NCAA Division I program, and will likely study business.

After a productive offseason, the Camp Verde High School boys basketball team is gearing up for a more competitive 2017-18 campaign.

The Cowboys took fifth in the Central Region with a 1-7 record last year, inspiring a bigger push in the offseason to improve, namely in shooting and basketball IQ.
