Greenville Men’s Basketball season starts this week as they take on Illinois Wesleyan and Elmhurst. As we take a closer look at some of the key players to Greenville College, we will start by getting to know Brian Ehresman.
Brian is a 5’11” senior, point guard for Greenville College. He grew up in Gridley, IL, where he attended El-Paso Gridley High School. He has been playing basketball since he was in first grade and has been at Greenville for the past 3 seasons and moving onto his final season. Brian has been the starting point guard since his sophomore year here at GC and has been Greenville Men’s captain since his junior year. He is a Sports Management major and has a bright future ahead of him in the world of sports.
The team had a 10-8 record with an overall record of 13-12 in the 2014-2015 season. A highlight from last season for the team and specifically Brian was beating Spalding and MacMurray in regular season play. Spalding and MacMurrary tied for first in the conference and Spalding ended up taking home the conference championship win. This proves that Greenville Men’s Basketball is a tough team to play against. They are looking to make the conference tournament this year and turn some heads.
