During a preseason interview, Warrior taskmaster Scott Wake was not real confident as to how his charges would perform during the 2006-07 season considering all the talent that had graduated from the previous season.
Wake believes his team has achieved its success this campaign because “the team chemistry has been real good, better than I thought it would be after seeing them during the summer.”
