Key Returners:

6’0 ’20 Landon Sutton
The leading scorer from last year’s team, Sutton, returns better than before. He’s continually
improved his abilities as a passer and all-around scorer, allowing him to toggle between guard
positions. Sutton was named to the PACIS All-Conference Team last season.

6’4 ’20 Brycen Thomas
Thomas is another returning starter from last season’s team who is poised for a breakout year. He
is a wing player from the slasher mold, able to rip through and make plays around the basket.

6’8 ’20 Zach Shumate

footwork inside; he’s comfortable stepping out to knock down outside shot when needed.
