Returning letterwinners (* returning starter): Jacoby Kelly* (Jr., 5-8, point guard); Dylan Lautzenheiser* (Sr., 6-0, wing); Nick Gutierrez (Sr., 6-0, wing)

Promising newcomers: Matt Reichert (Sr., 6-3), Austin Sudduth (Sr., 6-1), Brice Klausing (Jr., 5-10), Jon Lee (Jr., 6-0), Drew Bagley (So., 6-3), Blake Henry (So., 6-5), Nate Place (So., 6-1)

Team outlook: The Cougars have just three returning letterman after six seniors graduated, including third-team ALL-WBL pick Josh Braun.
