Scouting the Eagles: Knox County enters the QND/Gully Transportation/Suns Classic Tip-Off Tournament for the first time under second-year head coach Zach Summers. The Eagles finished 15-11 last season and lost in the district semifinals after starting the season 5-6.

Junior guards Royce Poore (18.3 points per game, 7.0 rebounds) and Donovan Edwards (12.2 ppg, 3.4 assist per game) helped facilitate the turnaround for Knox County. Senior forwards Kellen Gillaspy and Lee Tague provide the Eagles with size underneath the basket.
