We obviously have a long way to go to, but we’re in a good spot right now,” says MSSU head coach Sam McMahon, “We’re just getting used to each other. It’s a new staff and some new players. We’re getting some confidence going into our MIAA schedule. We’re ready to compete and we’re ready to get after it.”
