Bobby Frasco is off to Buffalo to play Division I basketball after earning player of the year honors in the Mid-Suburban League East last season.
Danny Thomas is continuing his career at Grinnell College.
Prospect is learning to live without its top two players from the 2013-14 last season, and to this point, the Knights like what they see.
Following an impressive 5-2 showing against teams from a variety of states at the Kansas University team camp on the Jayhawks' campus in Lawrence, Kan., Prospect High School finished second in the Stevenson summer league last week.
The Knights beat Lake Forest High School in sudden-death overtime in the semifinals before falling to surprising Vernon Hills in the championship game.
Prospect went 4-0 in pool play and finished the Stevenson league with a 5-1 record.
"It's been a really good summer," said John Camardella, who has guided the Knights to six MSL East titles in his seven seasons as head coach at the Mount Prospect school. "We still have a lot of figuring out to do, but I thought it was a real success, especially losing Bob.
"You start to figure out who you are again. We have enough experience. We have to play more as a team and not rely on one or two guys."
A pair of returning starters, point guard Kyle Beyak and forward Kyle Formanski, have ascended into leadership roles.
Beyak appears to be ready to do much more than simply facilitate the offense. Extremely quick with a tight handle, he can create his own shot, knock down the open 3-pointer and even dunk despite being just 5-foot-11.
He's being recruited by several Division III schools.
"He has been terrific," Camardella said. "He has a lot of pressure on him. He did terrific last year keeping our team going, getting the ball where it's supposed to go. This year he needs to take on a much larger role."
Formanski started every game as a junior, and two other rising seniors, Ernest Kiseliovas and Grant Miller, will enter the starting lineup after contributing off the bench last season.Copyright © 2015, CT Now
