Coach Hoffman’s Comments
“I think one of the biggest takeaways from last year to this year’s group was our preparation coming into this event. We had an extra week with school starting a little earlier and last year was our first normal season in awhile.”
He continued, “This event gives us a good look at a lot of our MEC opponents and our guys were right in the mix. Everyone has more of a comfort level of what we’re trying to do in year two and for our young guys, we had a chance to play a few more fall events to work out the nerves.”
Next Up For The Bobcats
Wesleyan will be back on the courts when travel to Pittsburgh to face Carnegie Mellon on February 18.
