Coach French says this about the offense:
'We have a solid group that understands TEAM play and a very talented guard in DD Joiner (MSC Freshman of the Year) returning. However we have several new players who have to learn our system and it may take a while to become comfortable. We are team oriented and attack inside-out."
Coach French says this about the defense:
'I’m anxious to see how well we can be defensively with this group. Our on the ball defense will be solid with two senior point-guards setting the tone. If our chemistry comes together along with our knowledge of our defensive system this team could be tough defensively. And as always in the Mid-South you have to be able to defend to compete."
