Head Coach: Dan Schnell, second year at Cole Camp

2014-15 record: 17-11, 7-2 Kaysinger

Who’s back: Alex Pritzel, senior forward averaged 20.7 ppg, 6.5 rpg last season; Austin Berendzen, averaged 8.5 ppg last season; Kyle Chamberlain, 6-0 forward who earned more playing time late last season; Levi Hare, last season’s sixth-man who started some games when others were injured; Adisen Harms; Unser Brockman

Who’s new: Brady Smith, 6-3 transfer from Stover; Kendrick Logan, junior forward, solid near the basket; Zane Brandes, Eli Schroeder; Trace Brandes; Reece Henning; Holt Wroten; Noah Craig

Who’s gone: Koby Knievel, averaged 11.9 ppg, 5.8 rpg; Tyler Ward; Darryn Frain, Zachary Fox; Darin Oelrichs

Outlook: In its second year under Dan Schnell, Cole Camp has to find a way to replace the interior presence of Koby Knievel and the perimeter shooting of Tyler Ward. Alex Pritzel will be a big part of the low post game coming off a junior year in which he averaged more than 20 points per game. Point guard Austin Berendzen is also back.

Outside of Pritzel and Berendzen, a lot of players are competing to get into what should be a deep rotation.

“Our practices should be competitive,” Schnell said.
