Team outlook: The Wildcats had a good preseason and bring back a pair of double-digit scorers in Thomas Phillips (12.7 ppg) and Hunter Phillips (11.2 points per game). “The overall success of the season will be based on whether the players share the basketball and play as a team,” coach Matt McCullough said. “Handling adversity, continuing to trust each other and not trying to do our own individual thing will be a key to success and overall growth as a program.”
