2012-13 Eckerd college basketball men's, women's previews

Eckerd

Men

Coach: Tom Ryan (315-158, 17th season at Eckerd)

Last season: 21-9 (11-5 Sunshine State Conference)

Notable: Lance Kearse and Wayne Sears, who started all 30 games last season, have graduated. But the Tritons return five players who saw plenty of action last season. Junior G Alex Bodney started 29 games and averaged 9.4 points. Senior F Darrien Mack was the sixth man in 2011-12 and was second on the team with 12.2 ppg. Senior G Woody Taylor, senior F Walade Wade and junior G Josh Snodgrass all saw significant playing time last season. The Tritons seem to have a good mix of youth and experience that could get them over the 20-win mark again this season.

Women

Coach: Paul Honsinger (81-84, seventh season)

Last season: 15-11 (8-8 Sunshine State Conference)

Notable: Replacing Linsey Niles, Taylor Young and Kati Rausberg will not be easy. All three averaged more than 10 points per game. The leading returning scorer is senior F Krystal Charles, who averaged 10 ppg last season. Sophomore G Kayla Bowlin played in all 26 games last season and likely will become a starter. Sophomore G Taylor Bestry, junior G Amy Buccilla and sophomore G Rana Thomas also saw action in more than 20 games last season. Junior C Kristiana Stauere, a 6-foot-4 center transfer from Indiana, could be a player to watch.
