Season Outlook from Coach Brooks
“We are excited to get our program up and running again. We have brought in a group of high-character guys that get after it and work hard which is what we wanted to start a program out with from the jump. None of our guys have played a minute of college basketball, but it has been a lot of fun watching these guys grow and mature in the two months we have been with each other. What we’re hoping for is that a couple of guys will step up and give us some leadership that all teams need, especially being the young team that we are.”
