Dartmouth College Big Green

2021-2022 SEASON PREVIEW

  • Assistant Coach Luke Forster is steering the ship while Dartmouth Athletics searches for a replacement for 14-year head coach Hansi Wiens, who stepped down in July.
  • The Dartmouth women will need to balance an experienced top half of the lineup with roster additions who fill four open spots in the back half of the order.
  • They are eager to return to a Top-8 position after dropping to 10th in 2020.
  • The Big Green men bring back everybody but their top two starters from 2020, which creates a deep squad full of internal competition, which will push them to improve on their No. 12 ranking during the last full season.
