- Top 100 returnees: G Nick Magalas (46th), G Rob Paris (48th), F Drazen Glisic (72nd)
- Other key returnees: G Anthony Degiorgio, PF Nick Snow, SF Patrick Sewell, C-F Andrew Wasik
- Newcomers: G Dakota Laurin
- Coach: Mike Katz (fifth season)
- Offence and defence: 101, 89 (+12)
- Last year's results: 19-11 overall, lost 96-81 to Ottawa in OUA East semifinal, 10th in RPI
- Looking ahead: The Blues have been the best team to not play in the CIS Final 8 over the past three seasons, having lost back-to-back-to-back OUA East semifinals to Ottawa. The positions in the pecking order might have flip-flopped finally (although people said that two seasons ago when Ottawa was picked for fourth in the division and ended up eliminating U of T when it had risen to No. 5 in the country, if memory serves).
Toronto has that element of veteran players who execute very well together. Magalas and Paris are the East's most seasoned, stable backcourt (by far). The 6-foot-8 Snow and 6-6 Sewell were each top-150 players last season, so they're hardly slouches in the frontcourt, while Glisic is apparently a very underrated player according to Pettapiece's calculations (he did draft him in the 8th round, after all). U of T isn't the quickest team around, but it's typically very disciplined. They'll be in the hunt for a first-round bye in the OUA East. They have a chance to make a run at the Final 8 this season since there is potential for the division to have two teams there, so no time like the present.
