On hopes for the team…

“I just want the guys to be competitive. I feel confident that if they bring their best, they can finish in the top-five. It’s important that they realize it’s just another tournament at the end of the day. You know, it’s the same every year with season tournaments, then conference championship, leading up to regionals and finals. So, I just want them to focus on their game.”
