2013-14 Season Outlook

Men's Basketball OutlookThe Northeast men’s basketball team has come off a successful 2012-13 season (16-15). Head Coach Dan Anderson was very happy with the team’s first year competing in the Iowa Community College Athletic Conference (ICCAC) Region XI.

“We knew it would be a difficult, first season in the rugged, prestigious region,” Coach Anderson said.

The Hawks have five returning players: Jabbar Washington, a 6’1” point guard from Michigan City, Indiana; Kyle Kilgore, a 6’7” forward from Adrian, Minnesota; Khapri Alston, a 6’6” forward from Chicago, Illinois, and Sheed Fairley, a 6’7” forward from Dunn, North Carolina All started games during their freshman campaign. Alston earned Honorable Mention All-ICCAC Conference last season. Oral Rahming from the Bahamas, has seen game action for the Hawks.

The Hawks will have seven new faces for the 2013-14 season. “Putting the incoming players, along with our experienced veterans, should lead to a good ball club. I have been very pleased with our pre-season and see high potential with this group. It has been a fun bunch to be around,” Coach Anderson said.

New freshmen include: Anthony Woods, a 6’1” guard from Kansas City, Missouri; Dionte Smith, a 6’4” guard from Nassau, Bahamas; Buay Tuach, a 6’4” guard from Omaha; Chima Moneke, a 6’6” guard from Canberra, Australia; Jesse Brown, a 6’6” forward from Madison, South Dakota; Lyle Hexom, 6’8” center from Omaha, and Demarcus Cunningham, a 6’6” forward from Atlanta, Georgia.

“As a team, there are high expectations for the Hawks,” Coach Anderson concluded. “The team’s work ethic during the pre-season has paid off in early-season scrimmages. This group has worked hard in the weight room, basketball court, and classroom.”
