In his first season, forward A.J. Brodeur led the Quakers in scoring (13.8 points per game) and rebounding (6.9 rebounds per game) while his 66 blocked shots set a program record. He has the ability to shoot the three and guard just about any position on the court.
Sophomore guard Ryan Betley missed his first nine games with a broken bone in his shooting hand but finished strong in Penn's surge to the Ivy League tournament. He is an excellent shooter and has worked at going to the rim more.
Senior Darnell Foreman topped Penn last season with 3.4 assists per game and had an assist-to-turnover ratio of almost 2-to-1. He will be joined in the backcourt by junior Antonio Woods, who is back with the team after being ruled academically ineligible and sitting out last season. Junior Max Rothschild has improved his strength and will do the dirty work under the boards.
Sophomore Devon Goodman came on late in the year and impressed with his quickness and passing ability. Junior Jackson Donahue (no relation to the head coach) saw his production drop last season but can light it up from deep.
Freshmen Eddie Scott and Jarrod Simmons could see time in the rotation. Guard Jelani Williams, who suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his senior season of high school, will be able to start practicing next month.
Senior guard Caleb Wood started 11 games last season. Senior Sam Jones has knocked down 133 three-point baskets in his career. Guards Matt MacDonald, Tyler Hamilton and Jake Silpe will help off the bench.
