Returning letterwinners (* returning starter): Brandon Wehri* (Jr., 6-3, post); Logan Hardeman (Sr., 6-2, forward); Austin Luebrecht (Sr., 5-9, guard); Connor Stechschulte (Sr., 6-3, post); Luke Trentman* (Jr., 6-1, guard); Ian Finn* (Jr., 5-11, guard); Doc Calvelage (Sr., 5-10, forward)

Team outlook: The Musketeers have seven returning lettermen to run their motion 3-out, 2-in/4-out, 1-in offense and their man-to-man with zone pressures defense. They have five players topping 6 feet. “I think we will have strong inside presence with multiple bigs that can command the ball inside,” coach Keith Utendorf said. “Our length can also be used to our advantage, as we will have multiple guys that can provide length both inside and on the perimeter.”
