The team-by-team outlook for the 2012-2013 Harford County boys basketball season.
Head coach: Richard Hart (15th season)
2011-12 record: 10-7
Top returning players: Anthony Bennet, Sr. (G); Eric Briggs, Sr. (G); Jordan Burgess, Jr. (G); Alex Funcheon, Sr. (F, C)
Key newcomers: Darryn Garner, Jr. (G)
Outlook: Head coach Richard Hart, the last UCBAC boys basketball coach to capture a state title, hopes his Eagles can rebound from a middling 2011-12 season by employing returning varsity talent and a key off-season acquisition. "We have six seniors on the roster, and three of them had considerable playing time last season," Hart said. "And, we had Darryn Garner transfer to Aberdeen from John Carroll this year. He's a guard, and should fit pretty well on our team."
Head coach: Mike Getz (second season)
2011-12 record: 15-9
Top returning players: Aaron Farley, Sr. (F): Tyler Norcross, Jr. (C); Juwan Singletary, Jr. (G); Derek Spanellis, Sr. (F)
Key newcomers: Nick Adams, Jr. (G); Jake Andrews, Jr. (F); Derek Freels, Jr. (G); Parker Jones, Jr. (G); Tommy Keller, So. (F); Chris Murdock, So. (G); C.J. Simmons, So. (G); Nick Vazquez, Jr. (C)
Outlook: "Replacing the solid inside-outside combination of Dezmon Hall and Cavin Murray will be a challenge, but with program continuity consisting of four returning varsity players who saw significant playing time and experience last season, along with eight junior varsity players moving up, we are looking to build on last year's turnaround season," head coach Mike Getz said. " We look for a December schedule including Perry Hall, top Harford County teams in the Chesapeake Division and the North Carroll Holiday Tournament to prepare us to make a run at the Susquehanna Division title in January and February."

Head coach: Jon Stefanides (second season)
2011-12 record: 12-12
Top returning players: Connor Bays, Jr. (G); Sam Hahner, Sr. (C); Will Hazelton, So. (G); Logan Keys, Sr. (G); Mychal Stefanides, So. (G); Jamal Worthington, So. (G)
Key newcomers: Alex Battaglia, So. (G); Tyler Dameron, Sr. (G); Brendan DeGross, Sr. (C)
Outlook: "Despite returning four starters from last season's team, we will still be one of the youngest teams in the UCBAC, with four sophomores and a freshman," head coach Jon Stefanides said. "The leadership that our seniors are providing will push the youngsters to excel on the court. We will be looking to play hard every night and to get better each day so that we can challenge for the Chesapeake Division.
