Although the team was predicted to finish last, Buzz and his players aren’t worrying about that.
Buzz stated in ACC Media Day that he still isn’t 100 percent sure what type of team he has but that he does see plenty of positive traits.
"They're working incredibly hard, they want to work. Their expectation is to work with energy every day. They've been phenomenal in their ability to listen, to execute what we're trying to teach them,” said Buzz.
The team looks to start off the year with a victory.
