Head Coach Bob Bayliss on Brian Farrell … “Brian needs to bounce back from last year’s season-ending shoulder injury. He was one of the best No. 5 players in the country as a sophomore, but a lack of concentration hurt his consistency last season. I think the frustration of last year’s injury will put the fire back in his belly this year.”
