Coach Pleasant says this about the offense:
I really like our balanced attack and our guys are once again completely bought in to our system. The Warriors will have tremendous size and athleticism with three different players measuring 6'8 and a 6'6 power forward. Depth will also be an added bonus at several different guard and wing positions, with two starters and several key players from last year’s 30 win championship team returning. Like always, team chemistry and team attitude will be the keys. So far this group has been incredibly close and seems very unselfish. We took a spring trip together and played some international games and that was a tremendous blessing.
