Spotlight Analysis: Milbank teams of the past always played hard and left everything on the floor. Hopefully this group can carry on the tradition. Tyrese Whitaker brings a wealth of experience at the point guard position while Terrence Trice is one of the most underrated scoring guards in the region. The kid gets buckets.
