Disappointed with what we showed in the final game, but I'll refrain from focusing on any negatives.    

Because this year was a positive:  great contributions from the seniors - we'll miss them; a terrific freshman class to go along with the kids who will be strong upperclassmen next year; a promising recruiting class coming in next year along with Sabino; and a very promising head coaching debut for Coach Damon.  

All I wanted going into the year was for us to be competitive and to be better.  We ended up being more competitive and way better than I ever thought we'd be.  

After almost having the life sucked out of it, this program has new life, a positive, upward trajectory, and, most importantly, the kids in the program progressed, developed and actually enjoyed their basketball experience.  

Very much looking forward to next year.  Go Pards!

With 2 on the All rookie team, things are looking up. Congrats to all on a good year.
GO PARDS!

This was a 4-win team that lost 3 starters including their two leading scorers. The fact that we got to 11 wins this year I thought should put coach Damon in the coach of the year conversation. 
We haven't had two all-rookie players since Caruso and Seiling in 1991. They followed it up with 3 20-win seasons. Let's hope we can get there! 
It was a pleasure watching this team. Hopefully nobody leaves and we can take the next step next season.
