10 Questions with Matt McMahon 5/17/18
Question: With a conference championship and a trip to
the NCAA tournament, what was this past season like for you?
Matt McMahon: There was a lot of joy in getting to that
point. A lot of the credit goes to our two seniors, Jonathan Stark and Terrell
Miller, for the leadership they provided. Newcomers like Ja Morant and Shaq
Buchanan had the attributes that you need to be successful. As the season went
on we went from being a talented group of players to being a great team and
eventually a dominant team.
We had a top-50 RPI ranking. We got a 12 seed in the
NCAA tournament, which is the third highest in school history. We had the 10th
highest winning percentage in the country and we were ninth in scoring margin.
