The team is made up of 6 sophomores and 6 freshmen, some of them are new to the program. So, coach Powell has a total of 8 new faces for Powell to work with.

"I have four transfers, from division one schools. It's nice to have those men because they have been through the fire a little bit, they've conditioned and trained at the division one level." Coach Powell said. "I expect all of those players to be a part of our 8 man, possibly 9 man rotation.

The Commodores 18-11 last year, with a 5-7 conference mark, their regular season opener comes November 5th up in South Carolina.

    Considering the caliber that the GCCC WOMEN play, why would the quite ordinary men's team even be mentioned? I would be the first to say that the political correctness thing has gone way too far, but the success of GCCC's women's basketball speaks for itself. When the boys become competitive, let's hear about them too!
