Central Region: Who Loses Whom?

The following are the senior losses and potential returnees for all Central Region teams. My benchmarks for key returnees, with a few exceptions, was 100+ kills, digs or assists and/or 50+ blocks. Tis a long post. Figured I’d beat the AVCA site to the punch.

See here for senior losses, key returnees for teams in the final Bison/AVCA Top 25 poll. See here for losses and returnees for Midwest Region teams.
