Outlook

Who's back: The Panthers return three players this season, including guard Jordan Delks. Delks was second on the team last season with 12.8 points per contest and his 89 3-pointers ranked him 14th in the country among NAIA Division II players. Guard Ronald Nanda averaged 16.3 minutes off the bench while center Jack Wallace appeared in just four games last season.

Who's new: PNC coach Kris Schnatz added eight new players to the roster, including seven juniors and one sophomore. Former Kouts teammates Kyle Mueller and Brad Parks both transfer in from Calumet while former Valparaiso High junior Seth Clinkenbeard joins the roster after taking two years away from the game.

Outlook: Schnatz has plenty of firepower on the perimeter and plans on running a four-guard offense this season that will lean on the 3-point shot. Time will tell how the team gels on the court, but if the talent plays well together, the Panthers should easily eclipse last season's 7-22 record.
