The Foxes will bring back nine guys who played a lot on last year's team. DiVito started as a sophomore, and Ducoing started the last nine games.
"There were some injuries that made us go in a different direction than we wanted to go last year, but we improved at the end of the season," Dunn said. "It gave other kids some opportunities. I'm excited where we're going and what we did this summer. You could see the growth of athleticism and strength, and that's a testament to kids working hard."
Marker hesitated to call last season a test year for the younger guys, but in a sense it was.
"I guess it kind of was," Marker said. "They got their feet wet. Getting acclimated, figuring stuff out, they saw the pace and speed of the game to see what it will be like. They will have two more years now and I'll have one, to see what it's like."
"It will help us out a lot," Konecny added. "We will have experience and know what to do in game situations. It will help us out a lot more, to know what to do."
Marker likely will move into the point guard role for the Foxes, with Konecny joining him in the backcourt and Ducoing on the wing. Ryan Shimp, Cole Yearsley and Doug Burson were three other guys who played varsity as sophomores that return.
"The biggest thing we want to do in the summer is improve as a program, individual and skill wise, and improve as a team, and I think we did that," Dunn said. "From where we were last year, with a lot of the kids up, that experienced has helped them grow."
