Optimism in Sacramento

The Sacramento Bee has an article on the Hornets and some optimism heading into the season, fueled by some returning experience and a light non-conference schedule.

Katz expects significant improvement following last season's 7-21 record.

"I like our group," he said. "We have some experience. We haven't really had any since I've been here. We have nine guys back who clearly know what they're doing, and I think the four guys we brought in are basketball-bright."
The shocking part of the article is that Sacramento State hasn't had a winning season since 1988-89, when they were in Division II! It would be quite a feat if they can get to the .500 mark.

They begin the year with this stretch - Menlo, Central Arkansas, @ Washington State, @ UC Davis, McNeese State, @ Col Poly. If they are going to be a decent ballclub this year, 4-5 out of that stretch is necessary. Brian Katz finally has a team of all of his guys, and he seems to be excited about it. Their drive for .500 begins tomorrow with what should be a gimme.
