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.
