Another NCAA appearance, another stellar season for venerable head coach Randy Lambert has the future gleaming for the Scots of Maryville College.
The Scots finished the 2011-2012 campaign 18-10 falling in the opening round of the NCAA DIII National Tournament.
Replenishing the troops is what makes this program one of the tops in the nation in their division year after year and this season appears to be more of the same.
The Scots welcome four Tennessee high school hoopers and a former Tennessee player and D1 transfer into the fold for next season.
Spencer Shoffner (Oak Ridge) brings his above average athleticism into the Scots fold next season. The guard/wing player will be a major contributor from the jump with his ability to score from inside or out. Shoffner was an all-district and all-region player at oak Ridge capturing the player of the year honors after his final campaign this season.
Staying in the East Tennessee area, Coach Lambert welcomes sharp shooting combo guard Tanner Torres (Anderson County) into the program after a solid senior season at Anderson County High School in Clinton. Torres was the Mavericks leading scorer and assist man and garnered numerous all-district and all-region honors throughout his career.
Still in the Volunteer state but in the opposite direction the Great South Athletic Conference stalwarts grab 6'5 power forward Logan Brewer (Polk County). Brewer was his area's player of the year and will be a welcome addition for a squad losing some inside force.
Venturing down to Middle Tennessee the Scots secure the services of another sharp shooter in Cameron Tuck (Dickson County).
Finally former Gatlinburg-Pittman star Jose Agosto, who signed with D1 Canisius out of high school, will make his way back to East Tennessee and play with the Scots and his former head coach and current Maryville College assistant coach Raul Placeres.
Another solid effort from Coach Lambert and his very capable staff.
