Coach’s Outlook: “We had a good scrimmage last week with Calvert Hall and Georgetown Prep. There were lots of positives. We’re a little banged up, but we move the ball quicker than we did a year ago. This is a different team; there is not as much depth and we don’t have the shooters we had, but we’re probably a better off ball team. I think we’re going to be a tough team and we’ll find out where we are by April 1.”
