November 17, 1991

Coach: Glenn Robinson, 21st year

Assistant coaches: Mike McKonly,Dan Fahringer

Last year's record: 28-3 overall, 11-1 and first in the Middle Atlantic Conference-Southwest Div., runner-up in the NCAA Div. III championship

Top returnees: Seniors -- guards Tom Nicholson, Chris Finch and Will Lasky, forward Mark Maggioncalda, center Dave Wilding; sophomores -- guard Andy Kuhn, forward Chris Lyons

Top newcomers: Freshmen -- guards Dave Jannetta and Mike Sievert, centers Charlie Detzand Andy Fackler

Coach's comments: "We have all five starters back from last year's team that reached the NCAA championship so we should be respectable. We think we have several outstanding young playersto give us more depth than we had a year ago."

The Carroll CountySun's outlook: The Diplomats are without question the team to beat in the conference. Robinson enters his 21st season with all five starters returning from last year's squad that reached the NCAA finals. They also have their top two reserves back along with some promising freshman. Robinson says this year's squad has added depth which should result in another trip to the NCAA tournament. The Diplomats stayed healthy throughout last season's great run and will need to do so again to reach the same heights. Tough to match last year's outstanding effort but if everything comes together, the Diplomats could very wellfind themselves back in the NCAA championship game.
