Anderson seems to be following a script similar to last season when it began the year 0-3 then when four of the next six games before losing a close contest against Fishers in the sectional.
A win tonight would get the Tribe back to within one game of the .500 mark and continue momentum into the final two weeks of the regular season. But Albano said the Indians aren't yet looking at the big picture.
"We've just been playing it game-by-game," he said. "We're not looking around and trying to make a run or anything like that."
What Albano has noticed is an increased level of competition in practice. With the injured players returning, everybody's level of play has risen.
The past two weeks have been the best practices of the season, and that has Anderson excited to see what it can do in front of a big homecoming crowd tonight.
"I want to see us play," Albano said. "We've practiced well. So I want to see how we play."
