There are lot of questions to be answered for the Lincoln men's basketball team.

When you bring in eight new players and lose six of your top seven scorers from a 4-22 season, that's to be expected.

The Blue Tigers will begin to find answers today when they travel to play Southern Illinois University Carbondale in an exhibition game at 7 p.m.

"This is a great basketball feeling right now for the first time in a long time for me, where I really feel good going into the season," Lincoln coach John Redmond said. "We have opportunities and people in the right places. I feel like we can contend. A lot of people the past couple years have out-manned us in different positions. I think we've got some recruits in here that can really help us."
