“I would be lying if I thought we’d start 11-0,” said coach Cameron Bradford, whose team made its debut this week in the Bay Area News Group rankings.
Bradford said he has emphasized player and ball movement and staying tight defensively. He also added that building chemistry has been crucial.
TKA has outscored its opponents 727-489.
