Portsmouth Trojans Basketball Preview 2017-2018 and Schedule

The Portsmouth Trojans will return 3 starters from a 17-8 team last year. Reese Johnson (6-1 SR), Daniel Jordan (6-2 SR), and DJ Eley (5-8 SR) will give PHS plenty of experience at key positions. Although it will be several weeks before the roster is finalized, most of the spots are set. Senior transfer Isaac Kelly (6-3, 200) will compete with MyQuel McKinley, a 6-3 JR, for the 5 position. Either player will give the Trojans a very athletic presence in the post.

Kendal Reynolds Headed To Rio Grande

6-2 senior Kendal Reynolds, the 4th leading scorer in Trojan history with 1,341 points, will be extending his basketball career at the University of Rio Grande. Reynolds was Portsmouth's leading scorer this past season as the Trojans posted a 17-8 record. Reynolds made multiple all-conference, all-district, and all-state honors in his career. Reynolds joins Kyre Allison, Tory Horne, Andrew Bendolph, Jayllen Carter, and Sky Oliver as players who played for Coach Eugene Collins and extended their careers beyond PHS.

Congratulations to Kendal on furthering his career at the URG.

Kendall Reynolds Career Scoring Update 5/1/2017

Previously it was posted that Kendal Reynolds had passed Larry Hisle into 3rd place all time on the Trojans career scoring list. That was in error due to unofficial point totals that were reported without true verification. As of 3/22/2017, Kendal is 4th on the Trojans all time scoring list, just behind Larry Hisle's 1,375. His official total has not been finalized, but it is not the 1,400+ plus that was previously reported. My apologies for reporting this without full verification.

The Current Decade of PHS Basketball Ranks 2nd in School History

The Portsmouth Trojans have an outstanding 139-56 record from 2010-2017, in which PHS is averaging just over 17 wins a season. Historically, compared to other decades, the current decade is the 2nd most successful period in school history. It is only topped by the 1980's, in which the Trojans amassed an amazing 197-50 record, for an average of almost 20 wins a season. Of course there are still 2 years left in this decade. Also, the 2 state Final 4 appearances rank with the 1920's, 1930's, and 1980's for most Final 4 trips.
