Coach Elders says this about the offense:
We return 4 of our top 5 scorers from a year ago. 6-9 transfer Ben Lanning help us be a better team offensive and we’re a year more experienced with running our offense.
Coach Elders says this about the defense:
During the last 10 games of the season last year we became a very good defensive team. We will be much better this year with the return of 6-7 forward Jake Plite, who missed several games with an ACL.
We have two of the best defensive guards in the Conference, so our defense will be one of the strongest assets. Center Justin Pepper was one of the top shot blockers in NAIA D2 last season.
