DeWitt is leading three Hatters in double figures for the season with 13.8 points per game. Senior forward Ricky McConnell is averaging 13.5 points per game and senior center Santos Hampton 13.0, while grabbing a team-best 8.2 rebounds per contest. Stetson is shooting 44 percent for the year, but has uncharacteristically been outrebounded by 1.8 boards per game. The Hatters' wins came against Webber International and Birmingham Southern, while their first loss was to College of Charleston.
Derek Waugh is in his first full season as head coach at Stetson. Waugh took over for Murray Arnold just eight games into last season as interim head coach and led the Hatters to a 17-12 record and a third-place finish in the Atlantic Sun. This is the first head coaching job for the 30-year-old Furman grad, who also earned his law degree from Wake Forrest in 1996 before becoming a coach in 1997.
