Vicksburg boys basketball went 8-11 overall last season. Now, in 2022-23, the Gators are 22-2 after a 79-49 win over Callaway Tuesday night and are considered one of the best, if not the best, teams in 5A.

The Gators say they had no choice but to grow and mature physically and mentally this season after gaining the varsity experience they needed throughout the tough 2021-22 year.

Sports Zone 12’s David Edelstein tells us how Vicksburg turned struggles into success.
