PLAYERS TO WATCH

G Miles Guliford, sr., 6-1

A first-team all-region selection last season, Guliford averaged a team-high 14.9 points, shooting 39.1 percent from three-point range, to go with 3.4 assists and 2.8 rebounds. He plays the point for the Lions but has the green light to facilitate offense for himself and is a strong defender. “Miles is a silky-smooth guard who can shoot it and finish around the hoop,” Wood said. “He has deceptive athleticism and quickness.”
