Notes: Lynn is coming off a 13-14 campaign in 2016-17 that earned the squad the No. 6 seed in the SSC Tournament but an early exit...The Fighting Knights were picked to finish seventh in this season's SSC Preseason Coaches Poll, but did receive one first-place vote...guards Allen Baez and Jamal Palmer return for their third season in the Blue and White while the frontcourt trio of Kevin O'Brien, Darius James and Kenneth Nwachukwu return for their second...Coach Price brought in a strong mix of interesting transfer players including sophomore shooting guard Randy Bell from Holy Family (10th in Division II in scoring as a freshman), big man Rasheed Worrell from Division I Bowling Green, shooting specialist Ryan Peterson (led Pace in scoring last season), versatile swingman Michael Baez (All-South Atlantic Conference First Team selection at Wingate) and Traveon Henry, who played four years of Division I football at Northwestern...Lynn will match up against historically strong programs in Bellarmine and Grand Valley St. early in the season at the Barry Classic, along with trips to Salem International Universty and Florida Tech's holiday tournament...The Fighting Knights kick off the new season on Wednesday, Nov. 15 with a home league tilt against Nova Southeastern.
