Bobcat Men’s Basketball Wrap Up and Look Ahead (Part 2)

This is the second in a series of four posts on the Bobcat men’s basketball team, discussing the past season and a look ahead to next season. Part 1 Season Wrap up, Part 2 Look ahead: Big men, Part 3 Look Ahead: Wing players and Part 4 Look Ahead: Recruits.

Despite loosing only one player big man from the 2008-09 team the loss of 6-7 (lets face it he is a lot closer to 6-7 than 6-9) Divaldo Mbunga will be a big loss. Not only will the Cats lose his 10 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 block a game, but even more so they will loose his quiet leadership in the locker room, that leadership was critical to the Bobcats tournament run. The two starting spots will be a battle between Bobby Howard, Brandon Johnson, and JC transfer Michael Swita. Last I heard, a couple months back Swita was still being bothered by a knee injury, so I am still a little nervous about his availability. The coaches are real excited about sophomore to be center Cody Anderson and I expect him to be a key player off the bench. Senior forward Cameron Henderson, had a hard time getting minutes this year, but could define a role for himself as a tough physical player off the bench, something this team will need. The coaches are also high on incoming freshman Jeff Budinich. His strength will be his offensive game but will need to prove he can defend to get some minutes.
