It's been a week since we last played and since we made history by being the first WBB team in school history to be ranked in the Top 25. So you can imagine that we are eagerly awaiting our next game. Don't get me wrong, it has been nice to give our team the mental and physical break they've earned. We gave them off from practice over the weekend knowing that we would still have plenty of time to get prepared for our Binghamton game this Thursday. It was a nice break for our coaching staff as well. I don't remember the last time I took a day from coming in the office- I actually got stuff done around the house!
But you can also imagine that the team would much rather be playing games then practicing. They have continued to work hard to improve even though the season is winding down. They are determined to be playing their best in March which makes my job easier because I know they will come to work hard every day in practice. We also know that we need to be prepared to get our opponent's best. No matter their record or place in the league, team's always seem to be ready to play Hartford. So with 4 games to go, we can't afford to not be ready or to take anyone lightly.
We are excited to have 3 of our last 4 games at home. Our Pink Zone game will be held this coming Sunday, the 21st at 2pm vs. Boston University and we are expecting a tremendous crowd. Then we wrap up our road games with a short trip to Albany on the 24th before celebrating Senior Day on February 27th at 4pm vs. Vermont. Then of course, it's on to the America East Tournament which is also here at Hartford. I look forward to seeing all of our great fans quite a bit in the weeks to come. Thanks for supporting us all year- hopefully the best is yet to come!
