Coach Keller says this about the offense:
We like to play up tempo, but are capable of playing a half court game. Our strength has been playing well together on both ends of the floor. We are very balanced with 10 players capable of scoring 15 on any given night. Our bench has put up 40 plus in 3 of our 5 games this year.
Coach Keller says this about the defense:
We need to get better defensively.
