In his first two seasons as head coach at Murray State, Steve Prohm took the program to new heights with a squad full of upperclassmen. With the departure of four starters, it may appear that Prohm's program is heading for a rebuilding season rather than its usual reloading. However Murray State has never had trouble reloading -- it has finished above .500 in Ohio Valley play every year since 1987. Prohm will attempt to continue that winning trend by utilizing a combination of promising returnees and junior college transfers looking to make an immediate impact.
