Get excited Leopard fans, it's the start of the Patriot League!!! I can't believe it's already time for league games to begin. In preparation for this upcoming weekend, practices have been tough. We have reviewed tape of both American and Navy and are sure of what to expect. Though the 6-8 twins from American might seem intimidating, we're confident enough in our play that this weekend being blocked won't be our downfall. Coach has worked hard with us in bettering out of system plays and using different areas on the court to place the ball. Improving these skills will allow for us to maintain the play and terminate points.
Patriot League games hold a different mentality that I know our team bears. We know our standard of play and the potential we carry; this weekend will be a great test for us to rise up to a new level. With confidence and high energy the team looks forward to this weekend's opponents!!
Please come out and support us Friday night against American and Saturday afternoon against Navy!! We won't let you down!!
