Head coach: Jeff Kaufman, sixth season
2014-15 record: 17-5 (10-0 Southeast, first)
Returning lettermen (starters): Eight (three)
Top players: F Jake Desjardins (Sr.), F Travis Boman (Sr.), F Kennedy Koehler (Jr.)
Outlook: Desjardins, who averaged 13 points and 5.0 rebounds per game, is one of eight returnees for the Cougars, who have only three seniors.
Boman (6.0 ppg, 8.0 rpg) and Koehler (5.0 ppg, 4.0 rpg) are expected to be among the team’s top contributors.
“This year’s team expects to focus on the team concept of sharing the ball and working together on defense,” Kaufman said. “With only three seniors, this mix of sophomores and experienced juniors is a physical group of athletes with the goal of playing hard every minute and winning far into the playoffs.”
