Great to have Justin Massey back!

I thought in Coach Curry's first half of his first season, we worked well as a team with Massey in the line up.  

Once Poole gained eligibility and they went with him more than Massey, the look and feel of the team seemed to change. It looked more like the NBA in that it was more selfish instead of Team concept.  At our level, we need that team chemistry back.  If we can get the 5 playing as one, I think the games will be fun to watch this year.

Comments

Faster play should be in store with a major focus on rebounding improvement as Coach mentioned. There should be a better perimeter attack as well with the insertion of a solid combination of shooting guards. This will open up the lanes more for the post game and prevent teams from focusing on one aspect. Overall, the team should be improved anywhere from 5-7 games.
