Head coach: Brian Kahre, 10th season
2016-17 record: 7-11 (1-7 1A Southern, eighth)
Returning lettermen (starters): Five (two)
Top players: G Brandon Eastham (Sr.)
Outlook: Eastham (7.3 points, 2.6 rebounds per game) returns to help lead a young team.
The Sidewinders return just five lettermen and were freshmen-heavy last year.
“We are a younger squad this year looking to build upon what we started last year,” Kahre said. “We have a great group of guys that are willing to work hard to improve. The team has set their goals to improve their teamwork and make the playoffs.”
