Keys to the Game: (These will be short and sweet today, but you can expect more as the season moves forward.)

  1. Hold the Highlanders: Let's start this season off on the right foot and hold the Highlanders to under 40% shooting and really concentrate on the defensive end of the floor.
  2. Rebound, Rebound, Rebound: This was, and still is, my biggest area of concern for this team. I'd love to see these guys get out and rebound the ball today with a decided rebounding advantage.
  3. Someone Step Up: It's pretty clear that Zeno and Burgess are the two best offensive players on the team, but the Red Raiders really need for someone to step up and be that consistent third and fourth scorer.
