Notes: This year's Lynn men's basketball squad is littered with veteran players, featuring a six-man senior class...the Fighting Knights are fortunate to bring back four starters from last year's team and eight players that all saw valuable minutes...in the Sunshine State Conference Preseason Coaches Poll, Lynn was selected to finish fourth and received one first-place vote....senior guard Jamal Palmer returns for his fourth year in the Blue and White, looking to boost his scoring output back to what he produced in a shortened yet solid sophomore campaign...junior-transfers a year ago, versatile wings Michael Baez and Ryan Peterson are primed for big senior campaigns...point guard Brandon Bornelus came out of nowhere and surprised the SSC last year as a true freshman, leading the Fighting Knights in minutes per game while providing multiple highlights plays and clutch late-game shots...former Division I transfer Rasheed Worrell is back for his senior season, holding down the low post...guard Darius Moore and mid-range power forward Hunter Parrish are veteran newcomers and transfers that are expected to make an immediate impact right away...Lynn finished as one of the best defensive units in the conference last season but struggled to put points on the board and shoot efficiently...Lynn's schedule features seven nonconference games, with all seven being at home.
