Head coach: Brian Hayes, second season
2011-12 record: 3-23 (1-15 Southwest)
Returning lettermen: Six
Top players: G Dalton Beighley (Sr.), G Billy Palmore (Sr.), G Jesse Crain (Jr.), F Adam Brand (Sr.), G Quon Cotton (Sr.), G Hunter Mills (Sr.)
Outlook: Few teams will benefit as much from realignment as the Trojans, who get away from the likes of Bishop Gorman and Durango and into a spot where they’ll certainly be more competitve.
Beighley averaged 9.6 points per game and likely will be the team’s top offensive weapon. He should, though, have plenty of support.
"We expect to be much improved this year," Hayes said. "We look at this season in two ways – either we use it as another year to improve and get better for next year; or our seniors put us ahead of schedule and put us in competiton for a playoff spot.
"Either way, we expect to see a vastly improved basketball team this year."
