Women’s basketball begins season at UW
This season the CSC women’s basketball team is focusing on getting better and gaining experience. The Eagles have 11 new players coming into the 2017-2018 season, including seven freshmen.
The Eagles lost to the University of Wyoming Cowgirls in Laramie, Wyoming, at their exhibition game on Friday, 77-25.
Janet Raymer is starting her second season as head coach of the Eagles. The Eagles had a 7-18 overall record last season, 7-15 in the RMAC.
Raymer expects all of her players to stand out.
“I could go through this whole team and say they’re going to do good things for us,” Raymer said.
One of the Eagles biggest strengths this season is support. Each player is excited for the others success, according to Raymer.
The Eagles are also focusing on having the right attitude and always working hard throughout the season. They’re working on having a flawless defense and moving the ball on offense.
The Eagles hope to show their improvement at their first regular season games this weekend.
This season at women’s basketball home games, the first 100 people in the door will be entered into a drawing to win a prize. The prizes will alternate each night, and the winner will be drawn after the first quarter.
The Eagles are at home this weekend. They will take on Texas A&M International University, Laredo, Friday and Texas A&M University-Kingsville, Saturday.
