Season Outlook/Notes:
by School's SID

SEASON OUTLOOK

After suffering through a 2-22 (1-19 MIAC) campaign in 1998-99, Hamline returns its entire varsity roster for the 1999-00 season.  Paving the way will be three-year starter Jeff Smock (SR, Big Lake, 8.3 ppg, 2.2 apg), leading scorer Jeff Campbell (SO, New Richmond WI, 9.2 ppg), and leading rebounder Chris Bloomquist (JR, Roseville, 7.2 ppg, 6.5 rpg).  Campbell (missed last eight games) and Bloomquist (missed last four games) will both be looking to bounce back from injuries that cut their 1998-99 seasons painfully short.

Also returning for the Pipers are nine other “veterans” - seven of whom scored at least 13 points in a single game - who saw extensive playing time last year.  Juniors Tyler Gehrking (Byron, 7.8 ppg, 6.3 rpg, school-record 44 blocked shots), Mike Granbois (New Town ND, 24 starts at point guard, 6.7 ppg, 2.3 apg), John Simonsen (Fairfax, 6.9 ppg), and Ryan Arndt (Waconia), as well as sophomores Landen Beard (Champlin Park) and Mike Robison (Richfield), all started games at various points in the season, while Jabari Thompson (SR, St Paul) and Jim Miller (SO, Annandale) gained valuable experience and provided quality depth throughout the year.

Fifth-hear head coach Tom Gilles applauds his team’s resiliency.  “This group never once “splintered”, and that’s a strong indication of their collective character.  To a person, our returners have worked very hard to make themselves better basketball players and teammates.  We’ll soon know whether or not we have succeeded.”
