Wabash College 2019-20

Recommended Posts

Wabash College kicks off their season tonight against a senior-laden Centre squad that went 22-6 last season. Wabash starts the year ranked #14 in the country and were in a three way bunch at the top of the NCAC coaches poll. Wittenberg received 91 points, Wabash got 90, and Wooster grabbed 89 points. Should be a dogfight this year at the top of the conference. 

Here is my preseason synopsis (all but a few members of the team are Indiana kids too!):

Returning starters:
G: Jack Davidson, JR., 25.1 PPG - 26 GS
G: Connor Rotterman, JR. 7.3 PPG - 15 GS (stopped starting at midyear)
G: Tyler Watson, So. 9.4 PPG - 11 GS (started to start at midyear)
F: Alex Eberhard, Sr. 6.7 PPG - 27 GS
F: Harry Hallstrom, Sr. 12.6 PPG - 26 GS
W: Kellen Schrieber, So. 8.9 PPG - 5 GS (started in place of injuries)

Wabash averaged 86.2 points a game last year and only lose 8.7 PPG to graduation/transfers. 
Senior wing Ben Stachowski started 24 games and scored 3.8 points a game
Senior post Logan White played in 26 games scoring 2.1 a game
Sophomore Conner Brens played in 25 games scoring 1.9 a game (not playing)
Freshman Niah Williamson played in 4 games scoring 0.8 a game (transfer, I believe for football)

The starting 5 will likely be

PG: Jack Davidson - JR
SG: Tyler Watson - SO
SF: Kellen Schreiber - SO
PF: Alex Eberhard - SR
😄 Harry Hallstrom - SR

First couple guys off the bench will likely be (freshmen below could change it): Connor Rotterman - JR, Jayden Edwards - SO, Colten Garland - SR, Jack Hegwood - SO
Players who can easily come off the bench but not likely in the top 9 are: Matt Chinn - JR, Parker Manges - SR

All of the above is based off of last year.

HOWEVER

Wabash has a very, very good freshman class and I would not be surprised in the least to see these first two freshmen play minutes. They all were highly sought after among various levels.

Justin Hensley - 6'4 G
Ahmoni Jones - 6'4 G/W
Reis Thomas - 6'3 W/F (football player so he'll be working his way in)
Cam Chadd - 6'2 G (transfer in, sophomore)

They also have as incoming freshmen who likely won't play a ton:

Jeremy Norvell - 5'10 G
Ty Bever - 5'11 G
Nate Butts - 5'9 G
Tristan Bufkin - 6'5 F
Trey Waddups - 6'1 G (I believe is a sophomore who didn't play last season)

This is going to be a team that plays very fast as they only have one true post player. They have a ton of guys who can slide down and play the five, however. Going to be a great year in Crawfordsville.
