The Weber State basketball team will unveil its 1996-97 squad along with a new scoreboard and a new arena floor tonight at 7 at the annual Purple/White scrimmage at the Dee Events Center.
The young Wildcat club, which still awaits word from the NCAA on possible sanctions for rules violations, returns only one senior in swingman Ryan Cuff.However, Cuff won't be participating as he's still recovering from back surgery this summer that he needed after rupturing a disc while lifting boxes at a summer job.
Returning for the Wildcats are junior guard Alex Fisher, sophomores Damien Baskerville, Joey Haws, Eric Ketcham and redshirt freshman Nathan Miller. Newcomers include: freshmen Ryan Jama, Cameron Koford and Matt Sparrow, and transfers Jimmy Smith and Patrick Wrigg. Sophomore guard Squirt Hicks and senior forward Bart McIntire transferred to Chicago State and Eastern New Mexico, respectively.
