I am a die hard UK fan... but I am going to get tired of no "Senior Night" to celebrate a four year player... Experienced Juniors and Seniors are a must if a team is going to be consistently in the final 8 , or even final 4.

Not sure what the solution is, but one-and-done takes away the magic.

The players on this team were more concerned with the name on the back of their jersey instead of the name on the front. Go Cats!
