Boys

Cedar Rapids Kennedy 68, Davenport North 56

Sometimes starting over from scratch with a basketball team isn’t necessarily a bad thing, and this Cedar Rapids Kennedy club is the definition of starting over from scratch.

Having 7.2 percent of your scoring back from a year ago isn’t much. Starting center Caleb Schlaak is the only Cougar to see much, if any, playing time last season.

Yet if Friday night is any indication, one thing you’ll be able to say about Kennedy in 2019-20 is it’ll play together. That’s an improvement that might just lead into an improvement in the win-loss column as well.
