With only five returning players and a new head coach, the Wesmen men’s basketball team is looking very different this season.
Veteran point guard Nick Lother will be the only fifth-year player on the team this season. Lother graduated from College Jeanne Sauve in the spring of 2006 and joined the Wesmen program that fall.
He has been an instrumental player for the Wesmen throughout his career, as a leading scorer and team captain for both the 2008-2009 and 2009-2010 seasons.
“I’m excited to see how well our team can come together this year,” Lother said after getting off to an early start this season with two games in late August against South Dakota State.
Entering his final year with a different team and a new coach means that Lother and the four other returning players will have a number of adjustments to make, but he’s confident that the program is headed in the right direction.
“Coach (Mike Raimbault) has created a positive and disciplined environment which is what the program needed. Because of that, the program is in good hands not only for this year, but for the future as well.”
