The Tigee Rideaux-era begins at Nimitz HighSchool. Rideaux is no stranger to reclamation projects, helping rebuild Lumberton as an assistant and Hamshire-Fannett as their head coach most recently.
"My job is to build a winning culture here and having kids want to come play at Nimitz," he said. "My mantra is based on family. I will create a family atmosphere."
He takes over Nimitz, which has a solid returning class that was competitive last season.
Senior McGrover Odili has the most experience on the wing, while Kentrelle Royston is a junior guard.
He has a trio of sophomores he will lean on early in Javarius Thompson, Eric Woods and Dominic Samuel.
Derrick Franklin is another name to take note of.
Coach Rideaux could also pull some athletes out of football with his new brand on basketball.
Under the direction of coach Aldric Reynolds, MacArthur is going to "See Red" this season.
"That's our motto," Reynolds said. "We are going to attack in everything we do from offense, defense and in the classroom."
Reynolds returns his five starters from a year ago, who took some lumps in 2021. They will be more seasoned, physically and mentally.
It starts with second-teamer Justin Williams, a combo-guard who can defend anyone on the floor.
While a little undersized, Jason Crampton Jr., can also go on the defensive end. He creates a ton of turnovers.
Shaneon Hordge is a hybrid, glue-guy that does all the dirty-work in the paint.
AJ Stephens runs the point and has improved his shooting, while Cobey Horn has the"potential" to be a college player.
Also, watch out forGary Rebolledo as well.
"We are just trying to just be different than the perception of MacArthur basketball of the past," Reynolds said.
