While many other boys basketball teams in the region tip off the season in the coming days, the last to take the floor will be Mt. Lake Area.

The Wolverines will wait until Dec. 2 to open their season, when MLA hosts Westbrook-Walnut Grove.

MLA finished last season as the Red Rock Conference champions, posting a 16-0 record in league play on its way to a 24-3 overall mark. However, the Wolverines’ bid for a third straight trip to state was derailed with a 63-59 loss in the Section 2A South finals to United South Central.

The Wolverines also lost nearly all of their scoring punch from a season ago, with 12 seniors
