6. FINDLAY PREP (Henderson, Nev.)
Last season's record: 32-1
Key players: PF Carlos Lopez (6-10, 200, Sr.); G D.J. Richardson (6-3, 175, Sr.); G Avery Bradley (6-2, 165, Sr.); F Victor Rudd (6-8, 210, Sr.).
Outlook: For years, the Pilots were considered a prep program fueled by fifth-year seniors. Coach Michael Peck has scrapped that plan and instead looks for national recognition afforded to legitimate high school programs. Peck will emphasize speed. Bradley, the 15th-ranked player in the ESPNU 100, transferred to southern Nevada after topping all scorers (25.7 ppg) in Washington's Class 4A at Bellarmine (Tacoma). Bradley, a Texas recruit and a surefire pick for the McDonald's Game, brings explosiveness and up-tempo skills. He'll likely be paired with Richardson, an Illinois recruit, to form a premier backcourt. UNLV-bound Lopez has company in the frontcourt with 6-8 Rudd and 6-9 Godwin Okonji from Nigeria. Guards Cory Joseph, Rasham Suarez (from Puerto Rico), Willie Hankins and Isaiah Grayson add depth.
