Water Polo looking for small improvements in final regular season weekend

The things coach Barry King would like to see his team improve upon in its final weekend of regular season play are small and understandably vague.

“We’re looking for a sharpening of our team concepts,” King said. “A sharpening of our roles. We want to see some improvement of some individual skill things that we’ve identified and talked to the kids about trying to fix some this week as we roll into the postseason.”

Senior attacker Nicole Redder agreed, saying individual aspects of players’ games are a focus this weekend. She also said her team strives to improve on capitalizing on opportunities.

“Little things need some work,” she said. “Some individual stuff. Finish and follow through with goals.”

King has been happy with how his team has finished power play opportunities.
“Our power play has improved,” King said. “That’s important because we’re generating a good number of opportunities earlier in the year that weren’t getting rewarded because we weren’t scoring goals in the power play as well as we are now.”

The Hoosiers face Brown and Harvard on Saturday in College Park, Md. and George Washington on Sunday in Washington D.C.
