Season highlights: The Wolves had a resurgent campaign as they rocketed to a 14-10 record from 5-17 last season with the help of the development of its returning players along with an influx of new talent. Coach Michael Rogers’ team got off to a good start, but then got a boost with return of Onyenwere, who had a major impact in his 14 games. He led the Wolves in scoring, rebounding, assists and steals on his way to selection to the All-Centennial League first team. Onyenwere reached double figures in scoring in 11 of his 14 games and cracked 20 three times, including a season-high 28 against Cherokee Trail. He grabbed 11 or more rebounds three times and all three games resulted in double-doubles, while he had 10 games of four assists or more (including a pair of seven-assist games) and also recorded at least one steal in every game in which he played. Onyenwere earned selection to the A-Town All-Star Game for the first time, while his older sister, Michaela, played in the game multiple times.
