Eckerd Tritons 2011-12 basketball preview

Eckerd Men

Related News/Archive

Coach: Tom Ryan (294-149, 16th season)

Last season: 22-8 (11-5 Sunshine State Conference)

Notable: The Tritons might have only two seniors returning, but they do not lack experience. Lance Kearse, Walade Wade and Woody Taylor all started last season, and Wayne Sears and Alex Bodney also got plenty of time off the bench. Newcomers Marko Filipovic and Malcolm Brunner are expected to get playing time. And North Florida transfer Josh Snodgrass is eligible after Christmas. Eckerd was picked to finish second by conference officials, so the expectations are high.

Women

Coach: Paul Honsinger (66-73, sixth season)

Last season: 17-11 (9-7 Sunshine State Conference)

Notable: Three starters return for the Tritons, Kati Rausberg, Krystal Charles and Taylor Young. Rausberg was second on the team with 11.7 points per game. Linsey Niles also got extensive playing time, so Eckerd does have some experience. The bench will be key if the Tritons are going to move up from the middle of the pack in the conference.
