Great West Conference Preview


1. South Dakota: The Coyotes should coast to a league title, thanks to the return of Tyler Cain, Louie Krogman and others.
2. Utah Valley: The Wolverines lose big-time scorer Ryan Toolson, but return Jordan Swarbrick and a solid cast of returnees.
3. NJIT: The Highlanders won just one game last season, but they have an excellent trio led by guard Jheryl Wilson.
4. North Dakota: The Fighting Sioux are coming off a 16-win season, and return an inside-outside duo in Travis Bledsoe and Travis Mertens.
5. Texas-Pan American: The Broncs return four of five starters, including stud point guard Nick Weiermiller, and bring in six newcomers.

6. Chicago State: The loss of David Holston will hurt the Cougars badly, but forward Carl Montgomery is a very good forward.
7. Houston Baptist: A 5-25 team that loses 11 seniors? That sounds like a recipe for a last-place Division-I.
