No. 19 Union men ready to start conference play, defend title

JACKSON, Tenn. - 1/7/2010 - Coach David Niven, in his first season as Union’s head coach, has continued to keep the Union Bulldogs as a presence in the national rankings and a contender for their second straight conference title.

2009-10 TranSouth mid-season update

After starting the season 4-3, Union is 5-2 in their last seven games heading into conference play. Union is 3-2 versus teams that are ranked. Union is 6-5 against teams that have been ranked or receiving votes as some point this year.

Niven recapped the early season play of the Bulldogs, “Our consistency has not been where we want. We’ve played quite well in stretches and poorly in others. That is something we must improve upon.”

“I feel like it will be a very close conference race and there are a number of teams that could win it. For the first time since I can remember, we probably have about five teams that are capable of winning our league. For us to be in that group we’ll certainly have to improve."
