“I am excited to start this year,” Avery said. “We have added some pieces to the puzzle that we believe are going to be a big help to the program. We have some guys that come from winning programs and have a winning mindset. We look to make an impact as a collective team through hard work, communication, and preparation. We understand that the road ahead is a tough one, but we feel that the guys we brought in are embracing that challenge. We need the support of students, faculty, and staff to make this year a special one and get back into tournament contention.”
