Cards Set to Embark on 2007-08 Season Led by Co-Captains Nick Pelletier '08 & Eric Winters '08
Coming off a 7-16 season in 2006-07, Wesleyan will be looking to advance both its overall record as well as its conference mark in 2007-08. With team co-captain Nick Pelletier '08 (#12, main photo) at the helm offensively as he ranked second on the team in both scoring (13.2 PPG) and rebounding (6.7 RPG) a year ago, the squad will also look to others among the seven lettermen out for this year's team for statistical support. Fellow co-captain Eric Winters '08 (#25, photo insert lower right) came off the bench to play in 22 games last year while Jeremy Kaminer '10 was the top newcomer on the squad in 2006-07 and ranked second on the squad with 64 assists. Wesleyan interim head coach Jay Johnson will be examining each player's potential, including about a half dozen newcomers, in constucting the 2007-08 Cardinal squad. Wesleyan will inaugurate the new season by hosting the Inn at Middletown Tip-Off Tournament Fri.-Sat., Nov. 16-17. Wesleyan takes on Springfield in the opening round while Rhode Island College and Western New England meet in the other first-round affair.
