Team preview: Oakland
Blue Ribbon Illustrated previews the 2003-04 college basketball season, exclusively on Insider.
There is no question Oakland is the team to beat in the Mid-Con this year. The Golden Grizzlies return all five starters, including three all-conference performers.
The trio of 6-0 senior guard Mike Helms (26.9 ppg, 4.0 rpg), 6-6 junior forward Cortney Scott (14.5 ppg, 8.7 rpg, 57.0 FG pct.) and 6-7 junior guard/forward Rawle Marshall (18.1 ppg, 6.6 rpg, 2.9 spg) is as good as there in the Midwest.
