Notable Quotable: “We’ve got 11 new players in the lineup and with them I believe we’ll be quicker and have more overall team speed. I particularly like our freshmen. The work ethic has been phenomenal and they came in very good shape as well. Our goals will pretty much remain the same, but now the expectations are going to be higher.”– Head coach Jim Fetter
