Team outlook: The Indians have a deep group of big men, and they like to run offensively. The key has to be defense, though. “It will be all about defense with this group,” coach Mark Triplett said. “If we can get stops consistently and control the pace of the game, then we will be able to complete with anyone on any given night.”
