Head coach: James Tippett, first season
2011 record: 3-13-2 (3-11-2 Southwest)
Returning lettermen (starters): 14 (Nine)
Top players: D Johnny Phan (Sr.), MF Joey Padfield (Jr.), D Daniel Garcia (Jr.)
Outlook: The Grizzlies took their lumps at times last season, but bring back 14 players, including nine starters, and should be much improved.
“I expect us to contend for the division title and make some noise when playoffs roll around,” Tippett said.
