Additional Information:
The Eagles will replace seven players from graduation last season, but should improve in areas with the addition of Dupree and Tucakovic, both all-league players. Dupree was 19 a game at LC and Tucakovic averaged 16.9 and shot 43% from the 3-point line at Highline College. Jessie Norton is an all-state guard coming in as a freshman but should help out at the guard position. Returners Shagren and Ogbalassie will help solidify the starting line-up. Mark Lieberman will also help out at guard redshirting after transferring from Mt. Vernon Nazarene where he was newcomer of the year as a freshman.
