NSU basketball has all the right pieces for next season

Posted: Updated:

It was a Cinderella year for the Northwestern State basketball team.  Winning the Southland Conference and earning a berth into the NCAA tournament were definite high points for Coach Mike McConathy's crew.  But now, its time to focus on going back.  

The Demons return a good nucleus from last season's roster.  They'll have strong senior leadership from Gary Stewart, Brison White, DeQuan Hicks, and Patrick Robinson.  The Southland Conference Freshman of the Year and former Bossier Bearkat Jalen West is poised from an even better sophomore season.  And of course, there's the signing of Pelican standout Zeek Woodley to add to the mix.  

McConathy feels like they have all the right pieces for next year.  They just have to find the chemistry.  Either way, with their recent success, will they be the ones to beat?

NSU is currently holding their challenge camp this weekend for high school players.   And fun fact, that's where they first noticed Jalen West and now he's a current Demon standout.
