Westwood boys basketball coach Hosea Graham has been chosen as Aaron Windler's successor at Mountain Pointe, Westwood athletic director Reggie Castro said.

Graham was the junior varsity coach for the Pride in 2011-12 and was a finalist for the head coaching job last year when Windler received it.

He went 10-17 in his one year leading the Warriors. Graham, who didn't return an email, previously coached at Seton Catholic.

Mountain Pointe principal Bruce Kipper said the announcement of the new boys basketball coach will come on Friday.

Mountain Pointe went 14-13 this season and made it to the second round of the playoffs. The Pride nearly knocked off eventual champions Corona del Sol in that game, but fell by a point in double overtime.

Leading scorer Khari Holloway graduates, while power forward Chris Davis highlights the group of returning starters.

Windler resigned for family reasons on March 18.
