Former Wittenberg basketball stars Dan Russ and Dane Borchers were named to the North Coast Athletic Conference Third Decade Team, which honors players who competed in the NCAC from 2004-13. Russ and Borchers played Wittenberg’s national runner-up team in 2006.
South High School graduate James Cooper, who played at Wooster, was also named to the team.
The NCAC also released its men’s and women’s preseason basketball polls Wednesday. The Wittenberg men’s and women’s teams were both picked to finish second.
The DePauw women and Wooster men are favored to defend their titles.
