“We could be better. Every season presents its ups and downs, and we’re no different than that, when you’re trying to perfect your craft. We’re a hard-working group, a young group, a group that wants to be better. So we’ve got pluses and minuses, just like anybody else.  Every year is different. I could sit here and make up a bunch of excuses, but at the end of the day it’s about playing and executing. We’re trying to get better at executing. We’re a younger team, not that much experience, but the fight we [have] gives us a chance to win every night. I want to say yeah we can turn it around, and I hope so, but it’s about the work you put in.’’


“It’s changing attitudes, it’s getting everyone to buy in, it’s getting everybody to believe and trusting each other. You hear all coaches talk about team, and it’s not easy to get going, especially with a more veteran team when all the players have had success doing it their own way. To then get them to do it a little bit different for the group, and make sacrifices for the group is always difficult.”
