2014-2015 Team Preview

A lot is unknown about the 2014-2015 Men's Basketball team. SRJC was hit hard by graduation and Davone Oliver and Corey Hammel are the only two returners who saw major minutes on last season's State Championship team. Also returning after taking a year off to recover from surgery, is Jajuan who played a large role two years ago. Santa Rosa will also have a host of freshmen and transfers that will fill out their roster. How quickly the newcomers gel with the veterans will determine how successful this team will become. As always, the Cubs will be challenged early and often this season by playing one of the most challenging schedules in the state.

Santa Rosa Junior College is coming off of one of their best runs in the program's history.
