Head coach: Charles Janette, second season
2013-14 record: 5-18 (1-9 Northwest, sixth)
Returning lettermen (starters): Six (five)
Top players: F Carl Albert (Sr.), G Ryan Goecke (Sr.), F Sam Menghisteab (Sr.), G Ben Sison (Sr.), G Travis Walton (Sr.)
Outlook: With five starters back, the Grizzlies are hoping to make significant improvement.
Janette expects Goecke (12.0 points, 4.0 rebounds per game), Walton (11.0 ppg, 5.0 assists per game) and Sison (6.0 ppg, 6.0 apg) to be the core of the team, and Albert (7.0 rpg) and Menghisteab (10.0 rpg) also should contribute significantly.
“The Grizzlies will rely on the foundation put in place last year that relies on sound defense and rebounding,” Janette said. “With added size, the Grizzlies hope to be less reliant on points from the perimeter. We should have the added depth to play a more uptempo style of game.”
