This was earmarked as a rebuilding season for a team that smashed the school record with 30 victories in 2002-03, captured the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association and South Atlantic Region titles and advanced all the way to the NCAA Division II final four before being halted by established power Kentucky Wesleyan. After all, that magical run had been fueled by virtually an all-senior cast led by All-American Tim Washington that was long gone.
