Boys Basketball: Keystone Oaks continues to struggle

Written by Brad Everett on .

One South team falling on hard times this season is Keystone Oaks.

The Golden Eagles have fallen hard, too. A playoff qualifier a season ago, the Golden Eagles are 1-11 overall and 0-5 in Class AAA Section 5.

First-year coach Dan Elzer inherited an extremely young squad that includes only two seniors and three juniors. Senior guard Kobe Phillippi and sophomore guard Mike Orosz are two of the team's top scorers.

The Golden Eagles have struggled mightily both offensively and defensively, scoring 41.8 points per game and giving up 66.4 a game. Both marks rank last in Class AAA. Its only win came against Fort Cherry in the season opener.
