Delta College had a great team in 2017-18, resulting in a trip to the National Tournament. But, with any team at the Junior College level, especially a great one, there's a lot of turnover on the roster every year. Needing to replace their leading scorer and rebounder from last year, Martel Handley and Virgil Walker respectively, Coach McMath and Staff, have put together a good recruiting class coming in looking to compete for playing time right away. Here is the list of incoming players for the new season, along with a quote about each from Coach McMath.
