Season Outlook/Notes:
by School's SID, Greg Peterson

 The 1999-2000 Royals will look to replace two-time All-MIAC and All-West District performer Eric Joldersma who averaged 26.5 ppg and 9.7 rpg. Bethel will look to spread to the scoring responsibilities between several players, including senior captains and brothers, Mark and Eric Johnson (Crystal, MN). Marc averaged 8.5 ppg and Eric averaged 6.0 ppg last season. Both players are entering their last season with two-seasons of game experience and will be looked upon to provide leadership on and off the court. Junior guard Jesse Peterson (Milaca, MN) will take over the point position from graduated senior Trevor Duininck. The 6-1 junior tri-captain averaged 5.2 ppg and 21.6 minutes per game. Sophomore post Eric Robertson (Anoka, MN) gained valuable experience as a starter in his freshman season. He will move to the "five" spot and will be looked upon to provide post scoring and quality defense in the paint along with 6-5 junior Mark Mills (Gladstone, MI). Bethel will look to a number of young players to fill the remaining spots, including; Brett Repasky (Maple Grove, MN), Trevor Larson (Stillwater, MN), and Josh Smith (Braham, MN).
