The two returning lettermen - Tim Holmes and Nate Dammann - are also the only squad members with any extensive varsity experience.
According to Vasher, six promising newcomers are among the team members who will impact this year's squad, each bringing a variety of skills to the court.
They are Justin Henke, Jordan Boekhout, Ryan Hanson, Chad Alesch, Brandon Brady, and Derek Lewis.
The second-year Eagle coach lists shooting and the ability to play tough, full-court defense as major team strengths this season. That lack of experience and an overload of youth are among the Eagles' shortcomings.
A youthful MMC team recorded a 4-16 record last year, most of those losses coming in the tough WEC play.
Vasher is again assisted by Tim Dreckman, forming a savvy coaching team that will work tirelessly to bring the Eagles to the fore in WEC basketball this season.
