A lot of programs would think that getting to the semifinals would be great, but for this group, the expectations are higher. The nucleus on the team has been the same for the last few years, and we've lost in the semifinals the last three seasons. We've been consistent, but we haven't quite made it to the top.

Injuries really hurt us last year. We were playing in the state semifinals and we had two all-state players on the bench.

You can't assume you're going to make it to the playoffs.
