Hampton University head basketball coach Buck Joyner might be hard pressed to make it three straight MEAC championships, but don't look past the Pirates.

From last year's team there is only one player returning who got to see very much playing time. Lawrence Cooks is that player and he is the only senior on this year's squad.

We suggested to coach that the fans may want to purchase a program to keep track of the players. His response was, "Yeah, we got a lot of new faces, not only players, we got a lot of new coaches, also. We got a young group, one senior, one junior, but we got an exciting bunch I think and they're working hard every day."
