RIGHT NOW I LIKE …

Our ability to score quick in transition, attack the basket, and our instinctive abilities on the defensive side of the ball.

RIGHT NOW WE NEED TO IMPROVE …

Our defensive rebounding and overall physicality.

OTHER THAN OUR TEAM, WHO WILL BE THE TEAM TO BEAT IN YOUR LEAGUE AND WHY

The SBAAC crown goes through either us, Bethel-Tate or Williamsburg in my opinion at this point.
