Head coach: Quintin Lester, second season
2012-13 record: 10-17 (4-6 Southeast, fourth)
Returning lettermen (starters): Six (two)
Top players: F Elijah Graves (Sr.), F/C Ed O’Bannon (So,), G Tyler Newman (Sr.)
Outlook: The Patriots bring back six lettermen from a team that qualified for the Sunrise Region playoffs.
Graves (10.0 points, 6.0 rebounds per game) is chief among those back and is joined by Newman (8.0 ppg, 2.0 assists per game). O’Bannon (3.0 ppg, 2.0 rpg) gives the Patriots an inside presence.
“Our program will introduce quite a few new faces,” Lester said. “We will be young, but extremely competitive.”
