Ty Pratt - 6'7 Junior Center - Can jump out of the gym, long arms, will be a shot blocking presence inside

Anthony Saavedra - 6'5 Sophomore forward - Will play a much bigger role this season, expecting big leaps from his freshman year.

Russell Robinson - 6'5 Junior Forward
Jeff Romeus - 6'2 Junior Guard
Jeremy Ware - 6'2 Junior Guard
Mac Kroeplin - 6'2 Freshman Guard
Skylar Shockman - 6'7 Freshman Forward
Coach Kaminksy says this about the offense:
With just one returning full-time starter, our squad will have to mesh quickly on offense. We've brought in several recruits who can hit the outside shot, and have added some height inside as well. We'll rely heavily on the steady play of Aaron Duske, and will look for more of the explosiveness of AJ McDonald.
Coach Kaminsky says this about the defense:
Defense is the foundation of our program at Valley City State and our slogan: "Where the Defense never rests."

Our defense relies on all five guys playing hard and working together. If we can give a good defensive effort night in and night out, we'll give ourselves a chance to win every game.
