Standing 6 feet, 4 inches, Hilliard Davidson High School boys basketball coach Kevin Logsdon hasn't had to look up to make eye contact with any of his players the past two seasons.

Standing 6 feet, 4 inches, Hilliard Davidson High School boys basketball coach Kevin Logsdon hasn't had to look up to make eye contact with any of his players the past two seasons.

But the 10th-year coach is pleased to report that has changed this season with the addition of freshmen post players Michael Simon (6-6) and Nick Totts (6-5) and sophomore post player Cody Fravel (6-5) to his roster.

The Wildcats, who finished 11-10 overall last season, open Dec. 9 at home against Thomas Worthington in an OCC-Central Division game.

"We actually have some size this year, and it's nice to finally have a post presence after not having anyone taller than 6-3 in our lineup last year," Logsdon said.

"What's weird is we haven't had many big guys come through our program in the years I've been here. Ken Ottrix (2003 graduate who was 6-7) was the last big kid we've had. Michael is going to start for us and I think both he and Cody are capable of scoring double digits on any given night. But even if our post players just combine to score double digits, we'll still be ahead of where we were last year."

Davidson also is rich with experience as five players who started multiple games last season have returned in senior point guard Davonte Peterson (5-10), senior guards Brandon Gleim (5-8) and Chris Martin (6-0) and senior wing players Chris Logsdon (6-1) and Robert Snauwaert (6-2).

Last season, Peterson averaged 13 points and was selected first-team all-league. Logsdon averaged 9.8 points and was named second-team all-league and Martin averaged 3.8 points and was honorable mention all-league.

Gleim and senior wing player Cole Lawson each averaged 6.9 points and Snauwaert averaged 1.7 points.

Davidson picked up a move-in from Reynoldsburg in 5-7 senior point guard Drew Mills. Rounding out the roster are junior guards Kyle Martin (5-10) and Scottie Munson (6-1) and junior wing player Luke Brorein (6-1).

"I think we have the potential to be better this year, but there are a lot of variables, such as staying healthy and having all of the kids buy into our system, so we'll see," coach Logsdon said. "We definitely have a lot of kids who are capable of stepping up and contributing."

The Wildcats won 11 of their first 16 games last season, including games against Olentangy Liberty (50-43) and Hilliard Darby (52-45).

But Davidson lost its last four regular-season contests and finished fourth in the OCC-Central at 7-7, behind co-champions Dublin Coffman and Upper Arlington (both 13-1), as well as Thomas (9-5).

Darby (5-9), Worthington Kilbourne (5-9), Central Crossing (2-12) and Westland (2-12) rounded out the standings.

The Wildcats then opened the Division I district tournament with a 50-45 loss to 10th-seeded Olentangy Orange.

"We have higher expectations for our team after what was a disappointing season," Gleim said. "Our goal is always to win our league, but Dublin Coffman and Upper Arlington are pretty good, so it will be a big challenge."
