Seth Eilberg has brought back seven kids from last season's team that went 16-12, but it's the newcomers that have him really excited.
Oxford, Miss. Native Beau Gibb is a 6-7 ½, 195-pound wing forward who is versatile and has gotten a few looks from Elon, Drexel, Robert Morris and LIU.
``He's an excellent rebounder, shoot the three, finished with both hands and is comfortable going to the basket or in the post," Eilberg said.
The other go-to guy will likely be 6-3, 195-pound sophomore Devon McBride, who hails from nearby Westchester, Pa.
``He's got the potential to be our best scorer besides Beau," Eilberg added. "But we're going to ask him to do a lot of other things."
The lone returning starter is 6-3, 175-pound sophomore wing Greg Harrington, a lefty from Pennsylvania who moved into the starting lineup midway through last season.
Junior forward/center Noah Levine (6-9, 230), who is receiving Ivy and Patriot League interest, is another D-1 player on the roster. Levine's biggest asset is his ability to step out and knock down the perimeter shot.
Alex Kirk, a 5-9, 160-pound Washington native who will likely play D-2 ball somewhere after he leaves Hill, will start at the point while a pair of junior swingman - 6-2, 190-pound Jason Brustein (N.Y.) and 6-3, 200-pound Corey Goff – will give Hill depth off the bench.
Eilberg won't have the a guy who can dominate in the paint as he had a year ago with Providence-bound big man Randall Henke, but he will have plenty of talent to compete.
``It's not so much the size, it's the rebounding ability," Eilberg said. "Henke did so much for us last year in terms of rebounding and shot-blocking, but we're hoping, as a team, we can rebound and defend well enough to compete."
