With much of their team originally expected back for this winter, Cedar Rapids Prairie had finally hoped to turn the corner on the hardwood. That has not been the case as the team transitions to another head coach while also seeing leading scorer Michael Mims leave shortly after the season ended in order to transfer to Xavier. It certainly was a tough blow for a program that has struggled mightily with consistency over the last decade. Experience will be on their side as Jalen Rima, Mitch Lorenz, JoJo Simpson, and a host of others know what it takes to compete with the top teams across the MVC. Buying in to the new coaching staff along with improvements defensively (they gave up 61 points a game last winter) could determine just how success this unit can be throughout the season.
