It should be another exciting year in Ascension high school basketball. The jamborees tip off this week, and the regular season begins next week.

Many terrific parish players return in 2016-17. Here are 10 boy’s and girl’s players to watch this season:

Le’Aaron Cain (East Ascension)

After a masterful junior season, East Ascension’s Le’Aaron Cain has established himself as the parish’s top talent heading into 2016-17. In his first year as a starter, Cain became the Spartans’ leading scorer as he sparked them to a 30-7 season that ended in the state semifinals. Along the way, Cain was named first-team All-District 5-5A, and he was crowned Parish MVP.
