Washington University ended their 2014-2015 season with a disappointing home loss to DePauw in the first round of the NCAA DIII Tournament. The Bears’ starting line-up will need to be rejuvenated after losing three all-conference picks.
BR-12 Washington University
Head Coach: Mark Edwards
2014-15 Finish: 20-6 (Lost to DePauw in the First Round of the NCAA DIII Tournament)
2014-15 Conference Finish: 9-5 ( Second Place in the UAA Conference)
Projected Conference Finish: 2nd
Key Stat: 7.6 – David Fatoki’s assists per game last season — third best in the division. He’s going to be tough to replace.

Silverman-Llyod could be a key factor for the Bears this season. Last season, “Silverman-Lloyd averaged 10.1 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game in 25 starts for WashU at shooting guard. He scored in double figures in 12 games, including seven times in conference play. Silverman-Lloyd poured in a career-best 22 points on 5-of-6 three-pointers in a 94-87 win at Rochester Feb. 15, and hit a career-high six threes in a 79-68 win at Brandeis University Jan. 25. He ranks first in the UAA in three-point field-goal percentage (.488) and third in three-pointers made per game (2.4)” according to bearsports.com.
