Samford

Roster

Schedule

Head Coach: Jimmy Tillette, 13th season, 195-161

2008-2009: 16-16, 9-11 Southern Conference

Outlook: run a Princeton style offense, very deliberate on offense - wants to play a slow pace, return five of top six players from last year, return PG Trey Montgomery and forward Bryan Friday, defensively they play a lot of match up zone, want to play their game in the 50's, senior forward Jim Griffin passed away in September to an apparent heart attack

Schedule

Head Coach: Mike Davis, 4th season at UAB - 60-39

2008-2009: 22-12, 11-5 Conference USA, NIT - 1st Round

Outlook: will press and trap for the whole game, complete opposite of Samford, coached by Mike Davis - the last time KSU fans saw Davis was in the 2002 Elite 8 when he was the coach at Indiana, three lettermen returning while losing seven lettermen, lose approximately 90% of scoring and rebounding from a year ago, lose three double digit, 1,000 point career scorers from a year in Robert Vaden, Paul Delaney III and Lawrence Kinnard, have established a nice tradion by going to the 2004 Sweet 16, six postseasons in the last seven years, including three NCAA appearances in the last six years

Green Bay

Roster

Schedule

Head Coach: Tod Kowalczyk, 8th season, 114-99

2008-2009: 22-11, 13-5, CBI - 1st Round
