The Oskaloosa boys’ basketball team has begun practice for the upcoming season. The Indians are the defending State Class 3A champions and return a big part of that team in senior center Xavier Foster, who averaged 14 and a half points, 12 rebounds and six blocked shots a game last season. When asked what part of his game he’s been working on over the summer, Foster said he was concentrating on the mental part of the game.
“I want to be the leader on the team, so that’s something I’ve been working on. Just communication, being the guy in the gym that everybody can look up to and talk to. I just want to be that teammate.”
The Indians boys’ open their 2019-20 season on Tuesday, December 3at Fairfield. Remember, you can hear Oskaloosa Indians boys and girls’ basketball all season long on KBOE-FM.
