Strengths of team 

Imhof: We have an experienced core who have been together for the last three years. The stuff we're running and the stuff we're adding is getting better faster and faster. We're not a very big team, but we're fast and athletic. We also have multiple scorers and most of all this team has a great work ethic.

Question marks on the season 

Imhof: There are some questions regarding depth, considering we lost some players last year. Some players are going to have to step up in new roles. In our last game last season we had too many turnovers, so moving into this year the goal is taking care of the ball and controlling the game under pressure situations.
