QUINCY, Il. (WGEM) --  Practice is underway at Pepsi Arena where the Quincy University Hawks are coming off of a rare sub .500 season in 2012-2013, including a first round loss in the GLVC Tournament.

Marty Bell and company are back to work with a mix of returning contributors along with some newcomers that hope to have an immediate impact.

After just 12 wins last year, the Hawks feel like there is a lot of business left on the table.

"For us to come up shy of the five hundred mark last year it should bother them," Bell told WGEM Sports.

"It bothers me, it bothers all of us. We have a lot to prove and that's a good edge for us to carry into the season."

"The kind of things we did last year didn't really get us anywhere," added senior guard Chris Babbitt.

"We are more motivated this year and a lot more (players) are advanced now. We know what to do now."

On Monday, October 28th QU their annual scrimmage featuring both the men's and women's teams at Pepsi Arena.

For Marty Bell and company, the preseason schedule gets underway on November 2nd with a road trip to Xavier.
