Head coach: Todd Herrick, fourth season
2011-12 record: 3-24 (0-14 Southeast)
Returning lettermen (starters): Nine (four)
Top players: F Josh West (Sr.), F Elijah Robertson (Jr.), G Bryan Catenza (Sr.), G Tyler Walker (Sr.)
Outlook: West, who scored 144 points in Tech’s final 10 games, averaged 8.5 points and five rebounds per game last year and leads a list of nine returnees for the Roadrunners.
Walker scored at a 7.1-ppg clip, and both Catenza and Robertson should contribute.
“We return the core of last year’s team which suffered growing pains a year ago, but gained valuable experience and look to parlay that into a positive season,” Herrick said.
