In 12 seasons at Utah Valley, coach Dick Hunsaker has taken the Wolverines from the junior college ranks to five consecutive winning seasons as a Division I independent to a successful four-year stint in the Great West Conference (28-14). The next step is the team's first season in the WAC. Hunsaker will be bringing three returning starters along to the new conference, including lead guard Holton Hunsaker, standout forward Ben Aird and a solid outside shooter in wing Jason Johnson.
