Tompkins one to watch in citywide hoops

Tompkins has several key players back for this season. Vype

Head Coach: Bobby Sanders
2016-2017 Postseason: Reached Bi-District Round; Lost to Fort Bend Travis

Outside of Cy Falls, the next best returning team in the Houston area may be Katy Tompkins. It would be hard pressed to find a team that returns four players who averaged double digits in points a year ago. A first-round exit from the playoffs last season has fueled the Falcons this offseason. Tompkins returns top scorers Jamal Bieniemy (15 ppg, 5 apg) and Kristian Sjolund (10 ppg, 5 rpg). Bieniemy is verbally committed to Oklahoma, while Sjolund has chosen Georgia Tech. The two are threats to score anywhere on the court. Other key returners include C.J. Washington (11 ppg, 4 rpg), Emmanuel White (9 ppg, 6 rpg – Texas State pledge), Jackson Sanders and Drake Dusek. Eden Holt moves in from FB Austin and will be a big addition. Falcons’ coach Bobby Sanders (6th – 55-42, 16th overall – 322-174) believes developing character in a person is key to them becoming the players they want to be.

One of the surprising elements to come out of Astros Fan Fest over the weekend was Jeff Bagwell's role speaking with the media about the state of the team. The Astros have three assistant general managers that were asked to speak, all declined, leaving Bagwell to answer all the questions.

Plus, when Jose Abreu spoke at Fan Fest about signing with the club, he thanked Jim Crane, and wait for it, Jeff Bagwell.

The Astros are expected to hire a GM, and we've been seeing reports about interviews taking place. But will Bagwell remain as the mouthpiece of the organization, acting as a buffer between the new GM and owner Jim Crane?

Check out the video above as the guys from The Wheelhouse lay it all out!
