The Pointer Men's basketball team opens its season on Tuesday at home as they face Lawrence.
Coach Bob Semling is hoping to reshape a team that won the WIAC conference regular season and Conference Tournament title. But he'll have to do it with just two seniors and one returning starter.
He has eight freshman on his squad that are expected to contribute early, and a sophomore transfer who is expected to be a significant presence on the floor.
UW Stevens Point opens the season ranked 24th nationally in Division III, and has spent 77 straight weeks in the Top 25.
