Coach Moore says this about the offense:
This team will get better throughput the season. We will be challenged early on with the loss of three very fine seniors who led us to a runner up finish at last year's national tournament.

I think this team has the potential to be as good of not better tam last year's team. It will be dependent on how consistent we can become.

Cory Blau is the competitive leader of this team. He is one of the finest players in the GSAC. We will need role players from last year's team to step up in the same way Cory did between his freshman and sophomore year.
Coach Moore says this about the defense:
I think we will be a very good shooting team that can score well, our defense will determine the outcome of many key games and will need to improve over time.
