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:

Kameron Kelson (St. Amant)

After losing so many seniors prior to last season, St. Amant needed someone to step up in the paint. Enter Kameron Kelson. Kelson transferred from East Ascension and instantly gave the Gators a boost down low. In his junior season, Kelson helped lead St. Amant to a 19-15 record and a playoff appearance. He was a first-team selection on both the all-district and All-Parish teams.
