Returning lettermen (starters): Eight (two)

Top players: F Canyon Lewis (Sr.), G Matt Tuttle (Sr.), G Eric Johnson (Sr.), C Cooper Burgess (Sr.)

Outlook: The Gators return eight lettermen, but only two starters from last year’s squad.

Lewis (15.5 points, 9 rebounds per game) and Tuttle (9 ppg, 5 rpg, 5 assists per game) highlight the list of returnees who hope to keep the team competitive in the Southeast League.

“Our goal is always to compete for a championship, and I think we will surprise a lot of people before the season ends,” Jarvis said.
