CHALLENGING SEASON
by Bruiser Flint

It’s been a challenging season for us. Just twelve months ago we thought we were on our way to the NCAA tournament. Now we are struggling to survive.

We enter the CAA Tournament with a 5-13 conference mark. That’s is far below our expectations. Most of our problems have been self-inflicted. One night it will be turnovers, which is the cause of our demise. On another night it will be poor free-throw shooting that costs us an opportunity. On another evening it will be bad shot selection.

And on some nights it’s been all those things.

At one point we were 5-1 on the season and ranked in the Mid-Major Top 25. There is no question that we have struggled since our early-season success. This is unfamiliar territory for the program. In recent years we have been among the contenders for CAA regular season title.

Now it’s a new season. The postseason gives you another opportunity. We know we are capable of playing some good basketball. It’s a matter of stepping onto the court and executing for a full 40 minutes.

Despite our struggles we have been in every game this season. We just haven’t been able to close games out, down the stretch. I certainly believe we have the capability of making a run in the tournament, but it will take a strong 40-minute effort
