RIGHT NOW I LIKE …

That we are improving daily with instruction of a new offense, improving to compete each day

RIGHT NOW WE NEED TO IMPROVE …

Our communication on defense, rebounding, establishing a consistent post game, changing speed on cuts.

TEAM TO BEAT IN YOUR LEAGUE AND WHY

Bethel-Tate and Williamsburg, both are experienced and both had successful tourney runs (last season)

ANYTHING ELSE YOU’D LIKE TO SAY ABOUT TEAM, SEASON

We have high expectations this year. We are still learning how to compete at a high level daily. We won seven games last year and our goal is to get to .500 or better plus compete for league title.
