Final Comments:
We have two starters and our leading scorer returning which is nice to build on from last year. We lost a lot of experience and guys that did a lot that did not show up on the stat sheet and did little things on the basketball court. We aren't the biggest team but we have some athleticism and I think we can better on the defensive end this year. We have a handful of guys stepping into new roles and will need some to be scoring threats for us.
