Head coach: Teresa Gallegos, 14th season
2014-15 record: 5-17 (0-10 Southeast, sixth)
Returning letter winners (starters): Four (two)
Top players: F Happy Butler (Jr.), G Destiny Byrd (Fr.), G Amanda Sanchez (Sr.), F Zoila Piee (Sr.)
Outlook: The Wolves bring back just four letter winners and are ready for a fresh start.
“The 2014-15 season was a disappointing one for the Lady Wolfpack to put it mildly,” Gallegos said. “We expect a much better effort and favorable results as our girls have worked really hard and are starting to jell at just the right time.”
Butler had a breakout freshman season, but was injured for much of last season.
“We have a potential star,” Gallegos said of Butler. “She can play all three frontcourt positions and is a tenacious rebounder and lights-out shooter from all over the floor.”
Gallegos also expects big contributions from Sanchez.
“Despite a very short rotation, the strength of the team will be defensive pressure and flexibility as our young, inexperienced players gain confidence,” Gallegos said. “I have not been this excited about the outlook of Wolfpack basketball in a long time. The additions to our program have added a very positive forecast to our current, intermediate and long-term future.”
