The fourth-ranked Pointers return six players who saw starter-type minutes last season, as the team will look to repeat as Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC) Champions and contend for the NCAA Division III National Title this season.
“There’s a lot of excitement when you return three seniors, and they’ve all been (First Team) All-Conference players,” said UWSP men’s basketball head coach Bob Semling. “I think our depth is much better and our experience is much better than its been the last couple of seasons, so we’re looking forward to using that to our advantage.
“As far as the ranking, I love the fact that people respect our program and what we’ve done here in the past,” said Semling. “And with the returners that we have, people feel like we could have a pretty special season.”
