  • Wildcats recognize seniors’...

    Seniors impact teams. The contributions may be in points, rebounds, assists, steals and other stat sheet categories.

    There are some seniors who may not see as much playing time as they’ve deserved over the years for any number of reasons, but they stuck it out. They show their young teammates it’s more about the team and being with the guys you’ve grown up with than it is about them. And, unfortunately, there isn’t a line on the stat sheet for the lesson that teaches.
