Eddie Radwanski is excited to see how his team develops during the 2016 spring.
“The spring is a great opportunity for us to grow as a team, and also for individual players to grow in their own games. We always get excited about the opportunity to experiment and think outside of the box, and always get great productivity out of our spring workouts. The schedule is everything we are looking for, including teams in the conference as well as outside it. We are looking forward to matching up with some teams that have different tactics and getting our team ready for the 2016 regular season this August.”
Radwanski’s team finished the 2015 season with a 14-4-2 record and advanced to the ACC Tournament for the first time since 2007, after finishing tied for second in the conference. The Tigers earned an NCAA Tournament bid for the second consecutive year in 2015, and advanced to the second round of the national tournament.
