Additional Information:
Head coach Ben Limback returns four of five starters from a 2014-15 squad that averaged 77.5 points per game (highest for the program since 2003-04). Last season the Bulldogs defeated two ranked opponents on the road - No. 3 Northwood (Fla.) and No. 12 Midland.
Coach Limback says this about the offense:
There are a lot of different ways we can go with things. That’s always exciting from a coaching standpoint. We can go really big. We can put really quick guards out there. We can do a double-post lineup. There are all sorts of things we can do, which makes it fun. I told the guys my toughest job this year is to get them to share the ball and play as a team offensively. We should score points. I’m confident of that.
Coach Limback says this about the defense:
Defensively it’s getting guys to buy into that side of the floor and understand the importance of it. We’re not going to score 120 points every night so we have to defend much better than we have in practice. They know that.
