PLAYERS TO WATCH:

Aaron Anderson | Guard
Anderson returns to the court after a red-shirt when he transferred from UCO. Look for him to have an immediate impact.
Jalen Bradley | Guard
Transferred from Northeast Community College where he averaged 17.3ppg, while shooting 42.6 percent from behind the arc. He also scored 42 points versus Indian Hills. Coach Scott Sutton has rolled with a steady eight-man rotation during his years as head coach, but with the talented freshman class, and depth on the bench, he may be forced to go a different route this season.

THOUGHTS FROM THE CAPTAIN:

Obi Emegano returns as the team and league leader after averaging 18.3ppg last season. The senior also earned Preseason Player of the Year honors for the Summit League.

“We’ve got a lot of young guys but plenty of talent. I think with such a young team it’s about teaching and being patient.”

“With the roster we have this year, for me, it is about enabling my teammates and showing them what our expectations for them individually as well as collectively are, and then let their game do the rest.”

PROJECTED STARTING LINEUP:

Aaron Anderson, Guard
