The 2015-16 season started out rough for the Hart Indians.
They began 2-6 in their first eight non league games. After rallying together they lost only one more non league contest and ended undefeated during league play.
It takes a special team to go undefeated in league and this Hart team is filled with special players.
The team’s three main stars are Ryan Kaneshiro, Cameron Fuller, and Chad Donahoe.
Ryan Kaneshiro is the only player returning for Hart who last year made the 2015 All-SCV Selection team.
Kaneshiro’s former teammate and co-foothill player of the year, Myles Franklin, was also on the All-SCV Selection team last year, but has since graduated and moved on to playing basketball for the Idaho Vandals.
Cameron Fuller made news when he accepted a full-ride scholarship to Army on December 12th making him the only player recruited and signed to a division one school.
When spectators watch Cameron they regularly see lobs thrown his way, and shots being sent back at the opponent.
Chad Donahoe is a special player as he led this undefeated team in scoring. Chad is a scorer, plain and simple. If he was having an off night from the field you better believe he would get some easy ones from the charity stripe.
The Hart Indians also have a pair of brothers on the team, the Dominguez brothers.
The older brother Preston Dominguez is a senior and graduates in May; while, Whitten is a sophomore playing on the varsity team and graduates in 2018.
Whitten is going to be last of the Dominguez family to go through and play Hart basketball as Rendon and his brother Parker played for the team back in 2007, and 2008 respectively.
Not only do the Hart Indians have special players, they are flat out dominant.
To further illuminate how dominant the Indians are, Hart blew out opponents by an average of 20 points a game, including a 46 point win over Golden Valley.
In their ten league games this year, the Indians only won by single digits three times and never won by only a single possession. The lowest win being by five against Saugus in the opener.
During the playoffs, Hart has been equally as impressive. So far the Indians beat Santiago 89-57, and Silverado 55-41.
Their next opponent will be the Cerritos Dons who have an 8-5 record on the season.
