Head coach Greg Kampe will be without freshman guard Nick Daniels for at least eight weeks because of a broken foot.
Daniels, an all-state selection during his senior year at John Glenn High School in Westland, Mich., sustained the injury last Sunday in practice.
This now makes three players the Golden Grizzlies are down, including senior forward Raphael Carter, who will miss the entire season after he was diagnosed with a femoral acetabular impingement, and senior guard Ryan Bass, who left the program last week.
Oakland may have a decent season if leading scorer Bader (22.1 ppg), rebounder Corey Petros (8.2 rpg), and assist man Duke Mondy (5.1 apg) stay healthy. The team went 16-17 last season. The key for the team will be defense. Last season opponents shot 49.3% from the field overall and in Summit League play teams shot better than 50% than the Golden Grizzlies. However, because of their offensive skills, Oakland still won 10 league games.
