Erron Maxey
Toowoomba Mountaineers
2015 Season
W/L: 11-6 (2014 Season 1-15)
Made Semi Finals (Lost to Mackay)

Coaching Staff
Head Coach: Anthony Corcoran (2nd Year)

Roster Transactions
In: Chris Whitehead, Aron Pantano, Syd Hume, Joe McConnell
Out: Jeremy Kendle, Stephen Kluck, Don Stephens, Aaron Howard, Glenn Reimann, Anthony Dickerson, Paul Aleer

Projected Starters: Chris Whitehead, Cameron Weber, Josh Derksen, Erron Maxey (198-F-78, college: Providence), Manylok Malek
Key Bench: Aron Pantano, Jason Ebneter, Charles Dickerson, Syd Hume

Key Gains
Chris Whitehead: Another Bellarmine product that is entering the QBL, following the likes of Jeremy Kendle and Braydon Hobbs. Whitehead averaged 15.0 points (57.8% from the field), 5.3 assists and 3.2 rebound in 30.5 minutes during his senior season at Belllarmine where the team ended up at the NCAA Division II Final Four in 2015 and spend time in North Cyprus before heading to Toowoomba. While his diminutive at 5'9', he has that speed and finishing touch to be virtual unstoppable driving into the key.

Key Losses

Jeremy Kendle: The heart, soul and brains of the 2015 Toowoomba Mountaineers. Made an immediate impact on both ends of the court and alongside Maxey carried the team to the semi-finals. Too good of a player to stay in QBL, thoroughly deserves the Bendigo gig.

Stephen Kluck: Kluck announced his retirement last year. While Kluck wasn't carry the team in offence (7.1 ppg @ 41.4%), his size and defence was much needed. It allows a player like Maxey to play a more comfortable role, while defensively it Kluck post presence allow Corcoran to assign Maxey as a lockdown defender.

Position by Position Analysis

Guard: Though losing the league's MVP is going to sting, Whitehead should be a great replacement. They are different players so the style of the game might have to change. Cameron Weber has been solid as a shooting guard for the Mountaineers but the addition of journeyman Aron Pantano should give added competitiveness in that position. Both players can shoot so it remains who ends up starting beside Whitehead. Jason Ebneter should see more increased time following the retirement of Glenn Reimann and the relocation of Anthony Dickerson

Forward: Despite all the age concerns, Erron Maxey was huge for the Mountaineers. Josh Derksen played only 2 games in 2015, but if he can commit to Mountaineers for the majority of the season he can be that third option Toowoomba been craving for, and one of my favourites for youth player of the year. Charles Dickerson is coming off a tough season but if he can quickly return he could be a valuable sparkplug. After that there not much in the tank.

Centre: Toowoomba has lost a lot in this department. Kluck, Howard, Stephens and Paul Aleer are all gone and that leaves you with youngster Manylok Malek manning the centre spot. Malek is a stretch 4 ala Ipswich's James Kuon, but expect Maxey to spend more time here in different scenarios. Syd Hume is a promising youngster out of Victoria and giving the loses upfront he has an opportunity to showcase his skills.
