Coach: Frank Kill

Years, career record: 10, 170-62

Division: III

Last Year: 12-12

Returning Letterwinners: Biggz Johnson (Sr.), Rossy Moore (Jr.), Shaun Thomas (Jr.), Jay Riepenhoff (Sr.), Rodney Bennett (Sr.), Ethan Bowker (Sr.), Nate Stolly (Jr).

Promising Newcomers: Meshaud Moore (So.), Bryan Hines (So.), Evan Unruh (So.)

Team Outlook: The T-Birds will look to use their athleticism this year. They will have to be big, quick and tough in order to compete with their tough schedule. Not being in a conference allows the T-Bird to schedule tough games in order to prepare for the tournament. Biggz Johnson will be a four-year starter for Coach Kill and the T-Birds. The T-Birds will look to run and gun this year as they are loaded with good guard play. Some key concerns will be the experience inside and their ability to rebound.
