Q&A with Morehead State's Sean Woods at OVC Media Day

Here is a Q&A with Morehead State head coach Sean Woods at OVC Media Day:

Q: What are your thoughts on this event?

A: Media Day is always an enjoyable event. It tells me basketball season is here. I like seeing everyone in a more relaxed atmosphere. The OVC has 24 head basketball coaches, and, at this point, everyone is thinking about what they can do to make their teams successful in 2014-15.

Q: Angelo Warner was announced today as a Preseason All-OVC selection. Tell us about your expectations for him this season.

A: We call Angelo "Mr. Consistency." He's our bulldog. Night in and night out, you know what you're going to get out of Angelo. He's consistent on both ends of the floor, which makes him so valuable. We have several quality guards and some talented big men this year, so Angelo has help.

Q: Over the past two years, you've talked about recruiting players who fit your style. How close are you to totally achieving that?

A: I like the direction we're heading. Off the court, we are targeting young men who are serious about getting a college education. On the court, we like to play fast. We are trying to fill the program with athletic kids who love to play basketball. We want gym rats who are working hard to maximize their potential.

Q: It seems like you've been pleased with the marketing and publicity efforts in recent weeks. How important is that visibility for your program?

A: I thought our athletic department did a great job with putting together Light Up the Lot. We had several hundred fans attend that event, including lots of Morehead State students. We hope those individuals will support us throughout the season. I've always said it's about selling the sizzle. That buzz is important for recruiting and our efforts in continuing to build the fan base.

Q: Can you speak to your program's depth this season?

A: I'm hoping everyone will add something to the soup this year to make it tastier.
