Last year: 16-14 (9-5 Patriot League)
Coach: Billy Lange, fifth year, 50-66
Returning starters: G Chris Harris, F Kaleo Kina, F Romeo Garcia, C Mark Veazey
Top player: Kina, who has started since the day he stepped on campus in Annapolis, enters his senior year looking to improve on a historical junior campaign. The 6-4 swingman became just the second Navy player to amass 400 points, 100 rebounds and 100 assists in one season during 2007.
Outlook: The good news? Navy welcomes back four starters from a team that recorded the program’s first winning season in seven years and finished second in the Patriot League in 2007. The bad news? The one graduate is honorable mention All-American Greg Sprink, who left Navy last spring third in program history in points. Kina and Harris should benefit from the addition of point guard O.J. Avworo, who spent last season on the bench after transferring from the University of Idaho. A stellar showing in December’s BB&T Classic would be another momentous accomplishment for Lange, the 2007-08 Patriot League coach of the year.
