Top newcomers: Ally McMillian, 5-10, Fr., C.

Coach: Corey Baker Top returners: Immanuel Bates, 6-11, Sr., C/F; Travon Jackson, 6-3, So., F; Jay Hickman, 6-1, So., G; Brandon Franklin, 6-9, Jr., G.

Top newcomers: John Michael Wright, 6-1, Jr., G; Ian Steere, 6-9, Sr., F; Josh Nickelberry, 6-5, Jr., G.

Coach’s comment: “This team is very athletic. They are very coachable with a willingness to learn, as individual players as well as a team, what it takes to get better as an athlete and also as a team. We are rebuilding the team. With the restructure of any team, they have to become unified. That doesn’t happen overnight. I’m looking forward to having a very good year. Once we come together as one and can keep the team healthy, we are going to be very hard to beat.’’
