Season Outlook from Coach Patterson

“Last year we began to turn our program around.  Our sophomore class this year was a big part of the success we had and they look to build on that this year.  We were 19-13 last year but we played our best basketball down the stretch.  We were 7-2 in our last nine games last season and really look forward to getting season started this year.  Our freshman are working hard and our sophomores are being really good leaders and we look forward to the upcoming season.”
