They will also have the task of shutting down CMU’s 6’5” middle John Neickarz, an All-Conference selection who hopefully matches up with Red River’s 6’4” Jarrell Taylor Babb in the middle.

“Jarrell is such a dynamic player, a complete athlete with a ton of enthusiasm that infects everyone. He’s a great leader for us on the court.” said coach Erik Hansen.





Zac McCarthy

Zac McCarthy

“Zach has been really impressive this year, with not much experience as a setter coming in he was forced into being the only setter on our team, taking a ton of reps and playing every game for us he has been a work horse all year.”

Hansen finished with “Both guys are invaluable to our team, couldn’t have had any of the success we’ve had without them, but it’s been everyone on our team that has made it come together. With such a small team everyone has their role and could have easily been all stars.”
