California Baptist is off to its best start as a Division I program at 8-1. The lone loss came at No. 7 Texas. And the Lancers also feature one of the best young players in the game in freshman Taran Armstrong. Yes, Armstrong has the ability to put up a triple-double night in and night out. But, it is the other little things like learning how to play defense, the competitiveness and so forth that are setting him apart. Add in the fact that, according to both Rick Croy and Braiden Bell, his teammates love playing with him, and you have a solid mix.

California Baptist has more depth than normal in 2021-22. With transfers Chance Hunter and Dan Akin, the Lancers got some veterans out of the transfer portal. These two go well with Ty Rowell, Reed Nottage and Tre Armstrong who have all been in the program for multiple years. Plus, having Te’Jon Sawyer and Malik Wade back again after their freshman campaigns makes life a little easier for Croy.

California Baptist has a big game at UC Riverside on Sunday before going to Tucson to take on Arizona the following week. Rick Croy is doing amazing things in Riverside and the Lancers continue to get stronger.
