Dwight Lewis says he added 15 pounds and Keith Wilkinson says he added 10 pounds in offseason weight-lifting.
“We came in last year as freshmen, kind of small and not really muscular,” Lewis said. “But now we’re growing and can’t really get pushed around anymore.”
Floyd said the improved strength of the returning players is what stood out in the first days of practice.
“Anyone who’s lifted will tell you that it helps in terms of ability to finish (around the basket), ability to hold their ground in the post and stamina,” Floyd said.
