Questions w/ Coach:
Q: How does your roster stack up against last season’s roster? Any major changes?
A: We added Noah Washington and Varschon Clark. After competing in the MSCS last year in Washington DC we knew we needed to get more athletic and add length. Both of these kids give us the length and add more firepower on the offensive end but both add a tenacious presence on the defensive end.
Q: What facet of the game do you want to improve on most going into next season?
A: We need to improve the most on the defensive end. We need to do the little things on defense and get a dawg mentality on that side of the ball.
Q: Which Prep Hoops Next event are you looking forward to most and why?
A: We are looking forward to the Heartland Kickoff in Louisville and The Stage in Indianapolis. Both tournaments have good competition and are well-run.
We look forward to covering Indy Heat Gym Rats this season!
