Season outlook:
Mount St. Joseph returns seven starters for new head coach Casey Brewster who takes over after serving as an assistant for the team last year. He had previously been the head coach at Sacred Heart. Wayne Black, Tommy Fehring, Cory Disbennett, and Nick Manning all topped 30 wins last year. After a young team gained a lot of experience in 2011-2012, those seven starters should be primed for an even better 2012-2013. Ten freshmen also join the Lions and there could be a few starters in that group as Mount St. Joseph begins competition in the Mideast Region.
