Bethany College’s men open their basketball season tonight playing Hastings College in York, Neb.
The action begins at 6 p.m.
Clair Oleen begins his 18th year as Swede coach and many believe they can improve on last year’s 18-13 record.
The Swedes recently were dealt a blow when senior and team captain Manny Honeycutt suffered a fatal heart attack and they’ll honor him this year.
The Swedes have a number of talented returnees, led by center Vincent Ferguson, and guards Clayton Goggins, Jack Sadowy, Trey Beachum and Quenton Jennings.
Newcomers to watch are inside players Haydon Parks and Chris Dean, and guard Gaileh Omar.
