G Prabhnoor Singh 6-4 Sr.

F Evan Harenberg 6-3 Jr.

Key players

G Nick Rose 6-1 Jr.

G Noah Wessels 6-0 Sr.

Outlook: Kelly (14.6 ppg) and Rose (9.2 ppg) were two of the Mustangs’ top three scorers a year ago. Defense will be a strength, as will the team’s overall experience.

Key players

G Jon Constant 5-9 Sr.

G Doug DeMaio 5-11 Sr.
