Overall this was a disappointing season as we went 9-20 for the second straight year. We made some strides as I noted early but ultimately it was our ugly away performances that cost us dearly. I can't complain about a 7-6 home record when our away record was 2-14. This may be attributed to the young team and should be something we can fix moving forward. One thing to remember is that this season our 6 best players were all freshmen and sophomores. We increased our conference record from 5-13 to 6-12 and were again able to avoid last place (which right now is our Athletic Director's only goal - showing how far we have to go). I know anybody reading would be able to tell I obviously got frustrated during this season with our results and I'm hoping to see some big improvements next year.

We finished dead last in RPI again as we did our inaugural season and this shows why. There aren't many encouraging numbers here and our foul differential was dead last in all of basketball. Again I'm hoping this is attributed to the youth because we had our entire starting lineup in foul trouble in all but one or two games the entire season.

Here are our season stats:

SF Larry Harris (Graduate Transfer from North Texas)
PF Harley Smith (Freshman Walk-On)

I did not get much of a chance to introduce this class. This year the players interested were not very good so I wanted to bring in two JC players so that we wouldn't have two dead scholarships for two years. I also didn't like the idea of having 5 scholarship players all in one year so wanted to mitigate some of that.

Tony Murray is a defense first big and Joshua Gonzalez is an inside scorer who is not a great defender. He may not end up playing that much due to his defense but the guy can score from the inside. Larry Harris is a graduate transfer who is decent offensively but probably won't see much time.

Last year our recruiting class was fourth in the conference and #147 overall. This year we were dead last in the conference and #340 overall. I took a risk by going after bigger names and it didn't pay off. Thankfully we really will only end up with two freshmen this year on scholarship.
