Saint Leo Men's Basketball in Prime Position for 2012-13

SAINT LEO, Fla. – Classes are in session and the excitement is already building for the Saint Leo Men's Basketball season once the calendar heads into November.  Just this week a simple phrase on the men's basketball Facebook page that read "Big things coming this year" had the fans abuzz as the memories of last year's success still sit fresh with Lions' fans.

Lance Randall's 2012-13 squad begins the year with some lofty goals and expectations, but the Lions continue to build a résumé which moves them into the upper tier of the nation's elite teams.

Let's looks at some impressive facts and figures as we build toward Tip-off 2012:

"We are looking forward to coaching a team that returns so much talent and experience," Randall said.  "This is a tough-minded group that has embraced a steel curtain defensive mentality. We have added two very good veterans in Jerrel Harris and Chim Kadima as well as three talented freshmen that greatly upgrade our depth."

These numbers, stories and the exciting additions are just a small part of what the Lions have in store for this season as the Green and Gold supporters begin to ramp up toward November.
