At out level of competition, the big question for a team is whether or not it continues to improve throughout the season, so that it peaks at tournament time. This team is not very good right now, but I think we are better than when the season began. However, we seem to have hit a plateau, and I am concerned that we need to pick up the pace again in the conference season. The talent is there. The problem will be from the neck up - or in the heart.
