NCAA D3 Bracket 2018
Grinnell men's basketball team seeks strong season - Nov 15, 2016

Nick Curta
Since the 2000-2001 season, the Grinnell College men's basketball team has made 13 appearances in the Midwest Conference Tournament, including 10 seasons where they have finished in the top two of the league. The high-scoring Pioneers are looking to continue their incredible run of success and bounce back in a big way this season. The Pioneers will lean on three senior captains, forward Nick Curta (6'6''-F) '17 and guards Julian Marx (6'0''-PG) '17 and Mike Porter (5'11''-PG) '17. Marx tore up the nets with a 40.8 percent success rate on 3-point shooting and 87.1 percent at the free throw line last season, while Curta led the team in field goal percentage at 70.8 percent, as well as rebounds and blocked shots. "The leadership they bring on a daily level is absolutely huge," said Grinnell interim head coach David Arseneault Jr. "If we're going to be successful this season, then we'll need them to provide senior leadership and stability." "Julian is already one of the most prolific 3-point shooters in Grinnell history in terms of percentage, while Nick and Mike can impact the game in numerous ways as they continue to increase their roles as seniors." A big junior class includes guards Ikaika Phillip (6'1''-G) '18, Sean Cullinane (6'3''-G) '18, Nathan Balcom (6'0''-PG) '18 and Gus King (6'2''-G) '18 as well as forwards Jacob Ekstrand (6'5''-F) '18 and Andrew Redhead '18. "As a group they will be thrust more into a larger role this season, and they'll be expected to play like upperclassmen," said Arseneault. "Each of them have a different skill set, all of which can help make this team successful." Arseneault went on to explain. "Jacob is a threat on the interior and perimeter, and provides us much-needed length and athleticism defensively," said the coach. "Ikaika is extremely versatile. His size and strength allow him to attack the paint and his ability to knock down shots from the perimeter adds to his versatile offensive game. Gus and Sean have the ability to stretch the defense with their outside shooting prowess. They'll also be counted on to utilize their understanding of our system to help balance their playing group. Nate is a combo guard with the potential to get to the rim and play from the perimeter. And Andrew is a versatile forward who can do a bit of everything." The top sophomore returnee is guard Vinny Curta '19, who led the team in assists last season with 3.8 a game while averaging 13.0 points. "Vinny had a monster second half of last season, and we're expecting him to build on that from the point guard position," said Arseneault. "His size, play-making ability and outside-shooting stroke make him a nightmare to defend and will undoubtedly create matchup problems." Other sophomores include guard Ky-Sean Johnson (5'10''-PG) '19, who averaged double digits in scoring last season, forward Griffin Boehm '19, guard Reggie Bynum '19, guard Mike Schroeder '19 and guard Damien Johnson '19. "Ky-Sean is a lightening quick combo guard with a pure outside shooting stroke," said Arseneault. "We'll be counting on him to demonstrate he's one year older and ready to carry a bit bigger load. Griffin and Reggie both will play key roles this year. They can get to the glass, defend and change the dynamic of the game with pure effort. Damien is a versatile wing and probably the quickest player on our roster. Mike provides depth and energy to the team." Top first-years include Jake Conran '20, Noah Jacobson '20 and Henry Ward '20. Rounding out the team are Anthony Gulve '20, Jacob Leder '20 and Jakub Zajic '20. The Pioneers will be looking to improve on last season's marks of 9-14 overall and 6-12 in the Midwest Conference despite averaging nearly 107 points an outing. "I think, as a team, we have to get back to the basics and bring the requisite effort and energy on a regular basis," said Arseneault. "We need to play unselfishly and bring the attitude of not caring who scores or who gets the attention. We just care about each player putting his best foot forward and getting victories. "Throughout the pre-season I've been impressed with our collective attitude and unselfishness," the coach continued. "We have a lot to prove, but I'm excited and I get the sense that we're a team that's hungry for success. I'm thrilled to be back home, coaching at Grinnell, and I look forward to another successful season of Pioneer basketball."
