Outlook: The Bulldogs have to look for a way to replace Democrat Player of the Year Garrett Goetze who was a force to be reckoned with in the low-post last season. He capped off a career which saw him score 1,601 points, the second highest total in school history. As a senior, he averaged 20.6 points and 11.7 rebounds per game. Also lost to graduation is Brock Nolting who averaged 12.2 points and 8.3 rebounds per game.
