Warren Reynolds Faces
Massive Rebuilding Task
vji\cc,i>ao»jKU · ine North
Carolina A&T basketball team
captured the Mid-Eastern
Athletic Conference cham
pionship for the fourth time in
five seasons last year with an
li-1 league record and a 20-6
overall mark.
The highlight of the 75-76
season was participation in
the National Invitational
Tournament held in New
York's Madison Square Gar
den. It was the first appear
ance for the university in a
major post-season tourna
ment.
Coach Warren Reynolds will
be faced with a massive re
building task this season.
Gone from last year's cham
pionship team are four start
ers and the sixth man.
The most serious task facing
Reynolds is finding a replace
ment for center Sinclair Col
bert who was among the na
tion's top 15 rebounders.
Reynold's recruiting efforts
'opused on the big man and he
IfBBteJfffliiaffBlirâifrâirairflfc
came up wiuj two good ones in >
6-10 center Melvin Palmer and I
6-11 forward Daryl Samuels.
"Both Palmer and Samuels d
are extremely agile for their 1
size, and I feel that they will
be able to contribute to our
basketball program next sea- j
son," Reynolds said. "Palmer
is a physical type of player,
whereas, Samuels is more of a
finesse player. j
"We are facing the strong
est schedule in the history of
the university with teams like £
North Carolina State, Oral ]
Roberts, North Texas State,
Fairleigh Dickinson, and Vir- I
ginia Commonwealth. Palmer jj
and Samuels both may have to |
mature rapidly to insure our I
winning tradition." 11
