The Indian River State Men’s Basketball Team is striving to prepare for a winning season in 2014/15. The Pioneers return sophomore veterans, Desmond Mitchell, Samson Nnaji, Mark Kubatov , Andrew Vanderbrook and Telvin Gabriel. These players are expected to hit the court during the upcoming campaign and make an immediate impact for the team. Adding to the excitement heading into the regular season are the freshman additions of Mike Merlano, Coy Paterson, and Melton Sanders. These new recruits should solidify a strong ball club. The roster will have some additions before the beginning of the academic year since recruiting is still in progress.
