2. What areas is the team really excelling in so far?

> Our offense is possessing the ball very well right now. Guys understand the importance of valuing the ball and working within our system. We try to decrease the number of turnover each day in practice and it is paying off so far.


3. You play a Top 25 MCLA Division 2 team, Missouri Baptist, in your first game, what are your keys to victory?

> We need to come out strong at the start of the game and overcome those first game jitters. This will be our freshmen’s first real game at the collegiate level and playing a top 25 team like MOBap wont be an easy task. I’m looking to see how our young guys handle that moment. We need to possess the ball well on offense and capitalize on our opportunities. Defensively we need to play aggressive and physical.
