First Week of the Season
Today starts the first week of the college basketball season. The first game of the season will pit Georgia Southern at Houston, followed by the first televised game pitting Presbyterian at the No. 5 ranked Duke. I am excited for the season to start and to have our games actually count at Monmouth. This weekend we open up on Friday at Florida Atlantic in Boca Raton and Monday at Florida International in Miami. We need to get one if not both of these games. That would be a huge start of the season for us. Just think if we win these two, we will already be a quarter of the way towards having a better record than last year. Hopefully my confidence and experience can rub off on the team. We have to be better than last year, which isn't really saying much.
