Season highlights: In the first season under Brandon Brown as head coach, the Cougars won the same amount of games as the previous season (seven), but lost seven games by six points or less, including three by two points and another by one. The constant each time out for Cherokee Trail was Lloyd, a big guard who posed matchup problems defensively and made a significant amount of plays. The All-Centennial League second team selection led his team in scoring, rebounding, assists and steals. Lloyd scored a season-high 26 points against Heritage on Dec. 15 as one of four games in which he surpassed 20 points and 16 double-digit scoring contests, while his season low in points was eight. He had seven double-digit rebound games and all of them gave him double-doubles (six with points plus a 12-round, 13-assist outing in the Cougars’ last game). Lloyd earned selection to the A-Town All-Star Game for the first time.

Lloyd vs. Aurora teams: vs. Regis Jesuit (14 points, 10 rebounds, 3 assists); vs. Smoky Hill (17 points, 3 rebounds, 6 assists); vs. Eaglecrest (24 points, 10 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 steals); vs. Grandview (14 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals)
