That's certainly a long way from recent teams led by prolific scorers and all-staters such as Noah Cottrill, Paul Herbert Williamson and Stevie Browning. Those three players - standout guards on Logan's last three teams - led attacks that averaged 80.5, 64.2 and 64.7 points, respectively.
This year's Wildcats squad was averaging only 54 points entering Friday's game, but that doesn't dampen the enthusiasm of Logan coach Mark Hatcher.
"We're right there,'' he said recently. "We've been in a lot of close games. We've got to keep believing in these guys.''
Hatcher noted that the reconfiguration of the Class AAA sections and regions makes for a different path for his program to get to the state tournament.
"With South Charleston out of our region,'' he said, "it makes our region a little different now. But we've got some really good teams in the other section of our region now - Hurricane's better, Winfield's better, St. Albans and Nitro are better.
"Huntington High is the big dog in our section now. It's who's going to find ways to win some games in our section now to get up there and compete with Huntington [for a high seed]. It's a long season.''
Here we are approaching the middle of the regular season, and defending Class A state champion Charleston Catholic is still trying to sort out its rotation of players.
Keifer Hovorka, who was coming off the bench at the start of the season, is now in the starting lineup. Junior Russell Miller has been getting some solid minutes lately. Other players are being shuttled around.
"We're playing a lot of different guys to try to find the pieces,'' said Irish coach Bill McClanahan, "to try to find the glue that makes the pieces fit. We're trying different combinations to see what pieces fit together the cleanest - and we're kind of searching.
"Nick [George] has been steady, Garret [McCarty] has shown flashes of being the point guard I'm looking for . . . We're starting to get there, but we've still got some things to fix. The problem is that sometimes those pieces are only snapping together for two-, three-minute spurts, and sometimes it's just in the first quarter and sometimes just in the fourth. We need to snap them together, leave them together and put the polish on it, and we're not doing it yet.''
