D-II College Basketball Preview: Davis and Elkins Men

ELKINS -

DAVIS AND ELKINS SENATORS

2012-13 Record: 9-17

The Davis and Elkins men enter 2013 looking to forget last year. The Senators struggled throughout the season, ending the year with an overall record of 9-17.

But 2013 is a new year. Through three games, D&E is already 2-1 and enters a new conference. The Senators also welcome in new Head Coach Chris Cottrell.

The 28-year-old has coached college basketball for 10 years. His squad is picked to finish sixth in the G-MAC preseason polls.

He hopes a strong foundation of four seniors can propel the Senators to the top of the league.

"Anyone who watched last year's team will certainly remember Devin Miller," said Cottrell. "Devin played here last year and was the leading scorer. In terms of new players I think you'll see a lot from Aleksandar Vasiljevic who is a transfer and Bruce Komakech who's a transfer."
