Returning Starters: 2
Primary Offensive Strategy: Motion
Returning players key to your offense:
Junior guard Joel Haywood is Concordia's leading returning scorer after averaging 10.3 points per game last season. The team's lone senior - guard Adam Vogt - put up 10.1 points per contest last season. Both Haywood and Vogt are capable of knocking down shots from the perimeter. Newcomer Deondre White, a 6-foot-2 sophomore guard who transferred from Wayne State College, will be counted on to be a playmaker from the point guard position. In the frontcourt, sophomores Robby Thomas and Max Wegener return after getting their feet wet last year. Both can step out and shoot. Freshmen big men Justin Damme (Johnson County, Neb.) and Chandler Folkerts (Milford, Neb.) will also provide scoring in the post.
Returning Lettermen: 4
Primary Defensive Strategy: Man-to-man
Returning players key to your defense:
The same players who are key offensive players will also be important on the defensive end. Haywood is a solid defender who plucked 29 steals in 28 games last season. The 6-foot-7 Thomas has a knack for blocking shots on the interior. Concordia's increased size and athleticism should make it more formidable in its man-to-man defense.

Coach Limback says this about the offense:
Offensively, we are going to look to push. We want to get high-percentage shots. We’re a motion team. We run motion and that’s what we’re going to be looking for. We have a few things to still work on in terms of what we need to put in offensively. I’ve been pleased with our progress so far knowing that we have a long ways to go.
Coach Limback says this about the defense:
I think we’re going to be extremely long. Defensively, our emphasis is to get deflections – to do things on the defensive end that help us lead to offense. Inside, we’re 6-10, 6-8 and even at the forwards we’re 6-7, 6-9 and our guard play on the perimeter is 6-3, 6-4. So I expect us, at times, to have a lineup out there that is no shorter than 6-3 (at any position).
