Basketball signing day is Wednesday

Wednesday is the first day of the spring signing period for men's and women's basketball, but don't expect much excitement around Taylor Center.
The men's team will add shooting guard Anthony Brant of Vermilion Community College. He verbally commited to the Mavericks in February.
Brant could fill the role of shooter, which the team lacked in the postseason. He made 113 of 264 3-pointers (42.8 percent) after making a school-record 123 3-pointers as a freshman. He averaged 20.7 points, 6.4 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 3.3 steals last season, earning the praise of Vermilion coach Paul McDonald.
In the fall, the Mavericks signed guard Alex Hanks of St. Cloud Tech.
There were reports of prospective players on campus last weekend, with more in the next couple of weeks, so you can only imagine that those are a combination of high-school and transfer kids. The biggest hole on next year's roster is center, and if you want a good one of those, you almost always have to get them with transfers.
The women's team signed four players in the fall so there aren't many positions left on the roster.
