Both the male and female DU Pioneers execute ally-oops in Magness Arena all season long, combining athletic prowess with top-notch coaching to thrill the hoops-loving masses. The men’s team, led by senior captain Kyle Lewis, starts the season backed by last year’s 15-game home court winning streak, the ninth longest in the nation and the fourth sweatiest in the Rockies. The women’s team returns this year with four of its five starters from last season, and a 18-13 record produced under the consummate leadership of head coach Erik Johnson. Once the last last-second three-pointer has swished, the players will happily sign their John Hancocks on shirts, photos, basketballs, and firstborn sons.
