SARNIA, Ont. — The 2018-19 season is just around the corner, and excitement continues to build with each passing day.

Over the next few weeks, we will be looking at names to know in each conference across the NCAA to help fans get caught up with who is returning this season, and give them some underrated names to know for the 2018-19 campaign. The biggest names in each conference won’t necessarily be featured, as the goal is to bring attention to some underrated talents across the country.

Changes are coming in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, and they begin to take place in 2018-19.

The Hampton Pirates have moved to the Big South Conference, ending their tenure in the MEAC, and they will begin play in their new conference this season. Then, at year’s end, the Savannah State Tigers will move down to Division II, leaving the MEAC at 11 teams for the time being.

Add in player turnover, and you have 12 teams in 2018-19 that look considerably different than they did a season ago. Star players have graduated, while several others have transferred out of the conference. With all of the changes that have taken place, it’s tough to keep up to date with what’s going on.

Here are 10 returning players to know in the MEAC before the 2018-19 season gets underway on November 6th, 2018.

Note: Names like Shawntrez Davis, Raasean Davis, Charles Williams and RJ Cole weren’t listed because people should be familiar with their names by now. Continue reading Take Note: Ten Underrated Names to Watch in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference in 2018-19
