NOTES

The Presbyterian College men’s basketball team heads to Knoxville to open the 2017-18 season ... It marks the second straight year the two teams have faced each other ... The Vols are 2-0 against the Blue Hose in the short series ...

The game against Tennessee, as well as the matchups against N.C. State, Nichols State and UMBC/Chicago State, are part of the Battle 4 Atlantis Regional Play ...

A lot of new faces on the men’s basketball team for the 2017-18 season, especially on the coaching side with the hiring of former Wofford Associate Head Coach Dustin Kerns as the team’s 18th coach this past spring ... At Wofford Coach Kerns was part of two Souther Conference championships and two NCAA Tournament appearances ...

Coach Kerns replaced Gregg Nibert, who resigned after the 2017-18 season after leading the Blue Hose for 28 years ...

A whole new staff joins Coach Kerns with the addition of Tommy Brown, Frank Young, and Patrick Moynihan ... Coach Brown led Lee University for 11 years, making eight consecutive NAIA Tournament appearances ... Frank Young was a standout player at West Virginia and still ranks among the all-time leaders in three-pointers made, attempted, and percentage ... Coach Moynihan comes from a Troy team that went 22-15 last season, winning the Sun Belt Championship and advancing to the NCAA Tournament ...

It will be a homecoming of sorts for Kingsport, Tenn., native Coach Kerns, who served as a graduate assistant under Buzz Peterson at Tennessee from 2003-04 ... Assistant Coach Tommy Brown earned his masters degree from Tennessee as well, and is a native of Chattanooga ...

Returning for the Blue Hose is sophomore Jo’Vontae Millner who led last year’s team with 10.8 points and 5.6 rebounds per game ... Millner ranked in the top 25 in the league in scoring, and was 12th in rebounding ... Reggie Dillard, who was third in the league in assists with 3.5 a game, returns for a fifth year ... In Big South play he averaged a team-leading 10.8 points per game ... Also returning is sophomore J.C. Younger, who, along with Millner, earned Big South Freshman-of-the-Week honors during the season ...

Dillard is on pace to become the fourth player in PC’s Division I history to eclipse the 1,000-point career mark ... He currently sits at 921 ... He’s also knocking on the door of the career assists record ... He needs just 41 to take over the top spot ... He’s also 60 rebounds from moving into the top five, and 27 steals from becoming the fourth player in PC’s Division I history from reaching the 100 steals mark ...
