Head Coach: Tim Smith

2014-15 record: 8-17

Who’s back: Austin Knipmeyer, junior forward; Justin Mitchell, senior post; Zack Giffen, sophomore guard; Michael White, senior guard; Noah Dierker, junior guard; Rhett Snider, senior guard; Drew Weber, sophomore post.

Who’s gone: Austin Boland, guard; Trevor Phillips, post; Andrew Krause, guard

Outlook: A year ago, Tim Smith’s Greyhounds were trying to get used to life after Jacob Schowengerdt. They found a replacement for much of the scoring in Andrew Krause, but now Sweet Springs has to do it again with Krause graduating.

The top scoring returning player is Austin Knipmeyer who averaged 5.6 points per game. Close behind him last season was Justin Mitchell who as a junior averaged 5.4 points per game.
