Bobcat men’s basketball 2009-10 Roster


With classes scheduled to start in about a month I thought I would look at the current state of the four D-1 programs rosters. I plan to list all four in the next two days.

This is not the official roster but it but I believe that if one was posted today this is how it would look. From what I have heard the entire team has been on campus taking second session summer classes and working out together. I do not believe the coaches expect any additions or defections before school starts. That said though thing happen especially with walk-ons so nothing is set in stone until they show up for fall classes.


Will Bynum                     6-3     shooting guard             senior
Cameron Henderson     6-6     power forward              senior
Marquis Navarre             6-0    point guard                    senior
Brandon Johnson            6-8     p. forward / center    senior
Bobby Howard                 6-7     power forward             junior
Danny Piepoli                   6-6     guard forward              junior
Erik Rush                          6-5     guard forward              junior
Larry Swann                    6-1     guard                               junior
Michel Swita                    6-11   center                             sophomore
Cody Anderson              6-10   center                             sophomore
Austin Brown                  6-4      guard / forward         sophomore
Bryan Louff                      6-1       point guard                 sophomore
Jeff Budinich                    6-10    power forward          freshman
Marc Bourgault                6-5      guard / forward        freshman
Colt Idol                            6-3      shooting guard          freshman
Steven Davis                    6-7      power forward          freshman

Here is my projected stating line-up (As always I reserve the right to change my mind after seeing them in practice)

Starting Five

Point Guard- Marquis Navarre (returning starter)
Shooting Guard- Will Bynum (returning starter)
Small Forward- Erik Rush (returning starter)
Power Forward- Bobby Howard (returning starter)
Center- Brandon Johnson (based on his play at the Big Sky tourney)

Back up

Point Guard- Bryan Louff / Eric Rush
Shooting Guard- Danny Piepoli (if healthy)
Small Forward- Austin Brown
Power Forward- Cameron Henderson (could be pushed by Budinich)
Center – Anderson/ Swita


Huse’s concerns (based on a May conversation)
The point guard spot and an injury to Marquis Navarre. Navarre is the only true point on the roster. Rush, Swan, and Bourgault can all play the point but they are not true points. With Louff agreeing to walk on hopefully he is feeling a little better.

Mslacat’s concern
I really hope Swita, Anderson, and Henderson can push Howard and Johnson for starting positions. I do not say this as a knock on either Howard or Johnson, but if MSU is gong to be successful we need Swita, Anderson and / or Henderson to be able to play at or close to the level Howard and Johnson.

Final Note: I have heard that 2008-09 walk-on Trevor Hopkins has transferred to a D-2 school in the Los Angelis area.- UC-Los Angeles I believe.
