Thrown into the fire since Day 1, Tommy Funk started every game for us last season as a freshmen point guard. As our team looks to take the next step, Funk will need to build on last season’s play that garnered him 1st team All-Rookie honors. Linked below is a good article from City of Basketball Love, a site focusing on basketball in the greater Philadelphia area, on Funk. After being picked 7th in the Patriot League preseason pool, we open our season tonight at Hofstra.
“That’s something the coaches and the other guys on the team helped me with,” Funk said. “They’d say, ‘Listen, you’re our point guard, I don’t care how old you are, you have to be our leader’ so that’s something I’m working towards this year, trying to take that role.”
