‘Tremendous’ leadership, experience are keys for a surging Kamiakin boys basketball team in 2021

Kamiakin coach Brian Meneely joined SBLive Washington’s 2021 basketball media day to discuss his young core’s state run in 2020, how the team has remained focused on preparing for a season that Meneely and his group have been pining to play since March 2020.

Kamiakin (5-0 Mid-Columbia Conference) brings back five of eight rotation players from a team that placed sixth at the 2020 state tournament. The spring has paved the way for senior Messiah Jones’ “tremendous” leadership, and a bit of a breakout season from junior slasher Tyler Bilodeau, who is averaging a conference-best 23.5 points per game, according to conference statistician Parker Hodge.
