Last season the Lions finished just 6-8 in conference play and because
of their subpar play they are determined to produce a winning season
in 2004-05. The return of All-Ivy forward Matt Preston, along with
forward Dragutin Kravic and new center Ben Nwachukwum, give the
Lions potential to make a ton of noise in the conference. Nwachukwum,
a 6-8, 235-pound freshman from Enugu, Nigeria, will be a great complement
to Preston, who led the Lions last season with 15.3 ppg and 5.4
rpg. Although Preston seems to be the team- leader, Kravic is the
player to watch on this Columbia team. In a game against Yale last
season, Kravic dropped 35 points and pulled down 12 boards in a
strong performance and finished the year averaging 12.3 ppg and
4.1 rpg. Preston and Kravic could be the best one-two tandem in
the conference, but a lack of size along the front line could cause
the Lions to struggle on the boards this year.
