Returning starters
   Cody Kiefer (6-5, Sr., F, 14.3 points), J.J. Colbert (5-9, Sr., G, 4.6 points), Trey Thomas (6-5, Jr., F, 7.2 points)

   The skinny: The Warriors lost their leading scorer in Benttion Hendricks, who averaged 17.6 points per game last season. While important, his departure might matter less than usual.

The reason is the return of Kroll, who led the Warriors two years ago with 12.5 points per game and 12.3 in the season before that.

"Our depth has improved over last year. Our size and speed are pretty good," Bair said.

Kroll's return also might add more balance to the offense after Hendricks and Kiefer combined for 733 of the team's 1,184 points in 2011-12.

"If we share the ball, limit turnovers and defend, we could be pretty good by the end of the season," Bair said.
