Coach: Mark Thurlow (14th year)

Last year’s record: 1-17

Returning letter-winners: Seniors — Tyler Cherkis (5-8 guard), Austin Ryerson (5-11 guard/forward), Nick Conrad (5-8 guard), Bronson Dean (6-3 forward); Juniors — Mike Daugherty (6-3 forward), Maverick Griffin (6-0 forward).

Key loses: Mike DelDuca, Nick Mills, Rick James, Cameron Pike.

Promising newcomers: Freshmen — Tanner Wheeler (5-11 guard), Brandon Daugherty (5-8 guard).

Outlook: The Rebels will be searching for an identity as they try to crawl back into tournament contention. It could come from a veteran backcourt led by Ryerson, Cherkis and Conrad. They will be one of the smallest teams in the conference, but Thurlow is pleased with their willingness to battle on the boards and just compete in general. The return of Dean after a two-year absence adds some much-needed size.
