Coach Kaminsky says this about the offense:
We will have a very balanced attack this year. The strength of our team will be our quickness and versatility. We will have an opportunity to play different line-ups which could present some match-up problems because of our size (if we play our bigger line-up) or with our quickness.
Coach Kaminsky says this about the defense:
With the recruiting class and our returning group, we have the ability to put a lot of defensive pressure on our opponents. This is probably our most athletic team we have had in my 11 seasons at VCSU.
