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.
