Augusta, Ga--It's the new look basketball at Georgia Regents University Augusta. Yes, a new name and a little change in colors but the same winning attitude. Actually, the bar has been raised to where it was a few years ago.

The Jags are coming off a couple of sub par years and are ready to get back to the tournament. Four starters return and that includes Harold Doby. Dip Metress will lean on three seniors, Doby, Ryan Weems and KJ Sherill, who red shirted last year. While last year may have been a struggle, at one point, this team was right there among the best in the country.

"People have a bad memories, in December we were eighth in the country" said Dip Metress "We'll be okay, we'll be okay. There's a high standard of winning around here and we're glad we have that expectation level and we're going to be back where we need to be."

"With the history here, last year we had a couple of incidents and this year we'd like to get back to being the team we're known for which is winning and getting to the NCAA tournament and hopefully try to win a national championship" said Ryan Weems
