What’s to like about Durango: The Trailblazers’ core players were significant contributors last season, including sophomore guard Anthony Hunter, who averaged nearly 10 points per game as a freshman. Junior guard Nick Blake, who scored seven points per game in 2016-17, has multiple scholarship offers, and senior Vernell Watts (6-foot-5) is primed for a breakout season.

The biggest obstacle for Durango: While Durango’s starters are experienced, it’s second unit is unproven.

Like most teams, one injury — especially to Hunter or Blake — could derail the season.
