“Though we started out with a couple of injured guys, our team is going to be better than last year, our leadership has improved tremendously. The new guys bought in are going to help. The, confidence in each other is there, and we are playing for each other.”

The other senior captain Aaron Bachura had this to say,

“I feel as if it’s the best team I’ve been on since I’ve been here. I’m expecting to do big things this year, the  team’s chemistry is strong. We really want to get to the national tournament, and getting to Hartman arena which is the championship game of conference. We have a strong core group of guys coming back,  we have a great addition with point guards and post positions. All we need is support.”
