"That is OK because the preseason polls don't mean much,” head coach Trimper told the media. "Maybe that gives us a little chip on our shoulders again. It's all about 'what have you done lately.'"
From the very start, the 2019 Hatters have been challenged. The opening weekend included a team from the ACC, Virginia Tech, and two perennial conference title contenders in Sam Houston State and Manhattan in the RyCass Classic where the Hatters lost all three games.
However, Coach Trimper won’t let the team get wrapped up in attaining the post-season success they had last year. They have one single goal in mind, to win the Atlantic Sun tournament as it will be hosted in DeLand this season.
"We have goals of winning the conference championship, and we are not going to sit here and hide from that. If we do the things we are supposed to, then we are going to be excited to play in front of our home crowd for another weekend."
