Knowing he will bring back a talented backcourt, Stern said the Vikings must improve down low if they want to be a major contender in the league.
"It was our sixth game where we either had a lead or were tied with three minutes left in the game," a disappointed Stern said by phone on Wednesday afternoon. "We're very young, so finishing out games was a problem for us all season. Everything was new to these guys. It was a great run, and the coaches and I feel like we got everything we could out of the kids. They were a great group."
