"Any time you return three starters the caliber of what these players are, you're going to be optimistic." -- Coach Anderson
Wahoo's three returning starters for 1994: Mike Hancock, Greg Hain, Travis Toline.

Mick Anderson had coached the Wahoo's boys basketball team for 18 seasons.


The 1994 Warriors were in many ways 1993, part 2.  With three double digit scorers returning as starters and a number of players capable of filling supporting roles the outlook was very positive for a team that had dominated its competition in 1993.  As Coach Anderson expressed early on, “What coach wouldn’t be optimistic?”  And the 1994 team did not disappoint, rolling up big offensive numbers (nine times reaching the century mark) and often times blowing out an opponent even before the first quarter buzzer sounded.  The style was the same: a smothering full court defense that would rapidly make turnovers into points and a half court offense that would out-quick you inside and rain threes from the outside.  But while most of the 1994 experience came as expected, there was one drastic change.  The Warriors did claim a sixth title, but the 1994 trip to what many referred to as “the big dance” would also be a “last dance.”
