Long Beach State Tones Down Pre-Season Opponents for 2017-18

Posted: July 1, 2017 in D1, Long Beach State

According to Gazzettes Sports, Long Beach State University has made Image result for photo coach monsonmajor changes in their 2017-18 pre-season schedule. “Since we’re integrating so many new players, it was important to us to create a schedule that would help improve our chemistry and allow for growth as a team while continuing to give us a challenge and provide national exposure for both the university and the program,” said head coach Dan Monson. “I think this schedule provides a better balance than last year’s schedule in that regard, and places us in a middle ground where we can accomplish both goals.”

After losing nearly all of their top players to transfer after the season ended last year, it looks like Monson had little choice.  He will be starting the year with nearly a completely new group of players.  Not unusual for JUCO teams but VERY unusual for a mid-major D-1 team.

Looks like this will be the most important year of Monson’s coaching career.
