We have gone through a long month of practice and hard work, and now game-time is finally here! This weekend, we have the chance to achieve our first goal of the season - to repeat as the Eastern Tip-Off Tournament champions! We are tipping off the tournament and our regular season on Friday at 5:30 p.m. in Geissler Gymnasium against Berkeley College of New York.
This season, we are excited to return 12 players from last year's team that went 20-10 and finished tied for second in the Little East Conference. We will be led by our two senior captains Bill Roveto and Broderick Sawyer. We are also excited to welcome three newcomers in freshman guards Brian Salzillo and Justin Nunez, as well as junior guard Chae Phillips.
We hope and are confident that this year's group will build upon last year's success and take that next step, namely winning the Little East Conference and earning an NCAA Tournament bid.
We hope to see you all this weekend and throughout our season's home games - we will be sure to give you a good show!
See you soon,
Jamie Kohn and Bill Roveto
