The Golden Eagles had an up-and-down run last year, but spirits are still high after they upset top-seeded Middle Tennessee State in overtime at the CUSA tournament. Senior guard Cortez Edwards averaged 16.6 ppg and, at 6-foot-2, did solid work on the boards with 6.4 rpg. Two important seniors are back – Tyree Griffin averaged 15.0 ppg and had the program’s second-ever 200-assist campaign, while Dominic Magee averaged 11.7 ppg and looks settled in after tours at Grand Canyon and Memphis. Fifth-year head coach Doc Sadler has seven years with 20-plus wins in 14 seasons overall.
