Season Outlook/Notes:
Macalester made a great deal of progress last winter under new coach Curt Kietzer, posting its best win total since 1988-89 and equaling the win total from the previous four years combined. Now in his second year, Kietzer is looking for the Scots to make another move forward in the always-tough MIAC.

The Scots must replace the league's third-leading rebounder in center Rob Sader (12.7 ppg.,/9.0 rpg.) and a guard with 226 career three-pointers in Jordan Barnhorst, but optimism is high for a successful season. Four-year starting forward T.J. Mahony (Sr., Boulder, CO) returns to lead the way. Mahony was named to the MIAC's All-Defensive team after being asked to always guard the opposition's top player regardless of position. He averaged 11.7 ppg., and 4.8 rpg. Guard/forward Doug Hoffert (Jr., Bloomington, MN/Jefferson) picked up 8.2 ppg. and 3.4 rpg. last year and can knock down the three pointer. Point guard Evan Bass (So., Chandler, AZ) was Mac's top reserve last season and was among the MIAC's assist leaders by season's end. Ben Goodman (Jr., Phoenix, OR) averaged 6.0 ppg. from his starting forward spot and Chris Franca (Jr., Davison, MI) saw action as the backup center.
