“We probably did overschedule,” Coach Cal said Thursday afternoon. “You talk about some of the teams that we’re playing and even your first game is against a team that’s been to three NCAA Tournaments back-to-back-to-back who will come in here with the idea of their beating a young team.”
Friday’s season opener against Stephen F. Austin (0-0) will pit two teams looking to answer questions after losing plenty of firepower from a year ago.
