Newcomers include Ross Arteaga of Mendota, Malcolm Foster of Elizabethtown, Ky., Corey McCrary of Chicago, Sam Ford of DeKalb, Connor Leffelman of Amboy, Kevin Harris of Indianapolis and 6-9, 300-pound center Perry Adams of Madison. Ford played last year for national power Highland Community College of Freeport.
Canale will be joined again on the bench by sixth-year assistant Chris Herman and volunteer coach Kevin Schultz. Ben Schmidt of Princeton is the team manager.
