Strong point: Team chemistry.
Biggest concern: Health and Inexperience.
Coach speak: “We are an inexperienced team with eleven freshmen and sophomores making significant contributions,” Hemsley said. “As a team we are not in the best of health with several key guys out with injuries or illness. We expect some mistakes and struggles early in the season but are hopeful that as we get healthy and gain some experience we will be competitive.”
