We lost games in which we had leads in the first half of the season (six losses by eight points or less) to grow as a team. Our 12-16 record overall was a double-digit-win season in consecutive years for the first time since 08-09 and 09-10. Our B squad went 15-10. We have a strong core coming up from the sophomore group.”
