What Heights does well: “I would say defense because I play defense. I have to face my guys on defense. But we do have guys on offense who played last year, like Toma King and Chris Reed.”

What has to improve: “I think the chemistry between most players. It’s developed from the start, but sometimes it’s the guys who don’t really hang out during school. If we do (hang out), then we become a stronger team.”
