Additional Information:
Missouri Baptist will have a new look when they take the court this winter with Matt Brock in his first season at the helm. Brock was the Associate Head Coach at Columbia College for the past three seasons. MBU will be experienced at the guard spot, returning Stephen Buckner and Chris Buzzell. Buzzell returns for his junior year after earning All-AMC as a freshman and sophomore, including AMC Freshman of the Year in 2013-14. He has scored 941 points in just two seasons at MBU, averaging 15.7 points per contest in 60 career games. Buckner, a senior guard, finished second on the team in scoring with 13.8 points per game. He led the Spartans with 93 assists and 38 steals, while shooting .842 (96-114) from the free throw line. The Spartans have also added a lot of new faces to the roster as they start to rebuild in 2015-16.
Coach Brock says this about the offense:
We will try to utilize our size and shooting by using great spacing and good post position to get the ball inside. We have several guys who score the ball efficiently around the rim and we will look to feature them offensively.
Coach Brock says this about the defense:
Defensively, we will look to be good in transition and force our opponents into contested jump shots in the half-court. We will be primarily a man-to-man defense but will occasionally mix in some zone.
