5th annual ETSU Game Time Tour comes to an end in Gray

Gray, TN - No coach at ETSU has had a more interesting offseason than Randy Sanders, following his suspension and reinstatement this April, but he is ready to move forward and put the focus back on the excitement for the upcoming season.

"It's in the rearview mirror," said Sanders. "it was an experience for all of us, but i think we've all gone on. i think the team has looked ahead. I was impressed with the way they performed in the spring game. we got better from the spring and we're looking forward to a good summer."

Steve Forbes offseason has been busy to say the least, after losing his entire starting five, Forbes has once again reloaded with multiple JUCO players, but there's still work to be done with two scholarships needing to be filled.

"Probably never close," said Forbes. I say I am, then I'm not. last year we signed Jalan McCloud in August and he was an all-league player, so i'm going to take my time to make sure we get the right fit. We're looking for one more post player, inside guy and we're looking for probably one more bigger wing. I feel like right now, even of we had to play today though, we'd have a very good team even without the two scholarships we have to fill."

Brittney Ezell saw two of her longtime leaders, Tianna Tarter and Mallloree Schurr, graduate this month. Needing to fill those shoes, Ezell took a page out of the Steve Forbes playbook, bringing in two jucos and a grad transfer.

"Obviously a formula that works for Steve," said Brittney. "We'd be remiss if we didn't try to take the best practices from everybody at the university. I like our kids, I like the makeup. four freshman, two jucos, a grad transfer that'll be an immediate impact and the eight that we have returning would be a really good nucleus."
