Season Outlook/Notes:

 The  Pipers  (10-14 overall, 7-13 MIAC) will undergo dramatic “changing of the  guard”  as  they enter the 1998-99 campaign.

Eight seniors, including three-time all-conference performer Chris Dueffert and two-time selection Will Roseberg, have graduated, leaving the squad’s fortunes in the hands of a talented-but very much untested group of young  players.

Leading the charge will be returning junior starters Phil Gardner  (F,  6’3,  Lakeville/8.7ppg,  4.6 rpg)  and Jeff Smock (G, 6’0, Big Lake/8.4ppg,  team high 86 assists), Sophomore lettermen Ryan Arndt (G, 6’2, Waconia),   Chris   Bloomquist (F,   6’6,   Roseville/3.6ppg, 3.7rpg)  and MikeGranbois (G,  6’2,  New  Town,  ND) as well as medical hardship freshman Jeff Campbell (G, 6’5, New Richmond, WI) will join Smock and Gardner to form a  solid  nucleus.   In addition, several key performers off of the Pipers’ 14-4  JV  squad,  including  junior  Kris Anderson (C, 6’5, Coon Rapids) and Sophomore Tyler Gehrking (C, 6’10, Byron) will play major roles this winter.

Replacing  Dueffert ,  Roseberg (988  points  and  537  rebounds),  and  the leadership  of  their  six  graduating classmates will be an obviously tall task.   Nonetheless,  4 th year head coach Tom Gilles is very excited  about the 1998-99 Pipers.  “Needless to say, we’ll be hard pressed to  replace  the  nearly  2,700  career  points  that Chris and Will scored between  them.   However,  I  have  a hunch that this young bunch will pull together and find a way to get it done at both ends of the floor.”
