"Trust takes time, new systems take time, and I think we are starting to gel as a group at the right time. I'm excited as well to continue our development objectives and really get us prepared for the stretch run into the playoffs. It looks like Southern Oregon may end up being our first round opponent and they are a really solid team so we must be focused, prepared, and show a sense of urgency at all times for 60 minutes each night.
