Men's Basketball Picked Seventh in GLIAC South

BAY CITY, Mich. – Ohio Dominican's men's basketball team has been selected to finish seventh in the GLIAC South Division Preseason Media Poll, announced Thursday by the conference office.

The Panthers tallied 45 points in the poll, just two points fewer than sixth place Tiffin. Findlay garnered 23 of 25 first place votes and picked up 173 points as the preseason South Division favorite, while Grand Valley State is projected to win the North Division with 22 first place votes.

Ohio Dominican returns seven letterwinners and three starters from last year's 10-17 squad. Aaron Gibbs leads the returners, as he averaged a team-high 12.2 points and 8.0 rebounds per game last season. Also returning is John Trew, who finished with 9.6 points and 4.6 rebounds per contest, and junior Zak Kapron, who tallied 7.6 points and 5.3 rebounds per game.

The Panthers tip off their season at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 12 at Southern Indiana in Evansville, Ind.
