Coach’s comments: “We had a good summer so the girls are getting used to me. We have a lot of girls back that we are asking more of them than in the past. I am a team-orientated coach, so we’re going to work on going eight to 10 deep with no letdown. The girls respond when it’s everyone’s game. We want to be unselfish and play together. The ability is there, we just have to pull it out.
“The girls have to step up and play with confidence, so they don’t hesitate to do what they need to do on the floor. There is some redemption on the seniors’ minds. They have some things to prove and that means they’re hungry. We have seven sophomores, so it will be interesting to see who develops the fastest.”
