2015-16 Desert Oasis Girls Basketball Capsule

DESERT OASIS

Head coach: Laurie Evans-Gygax, 10th season

2014-15 record: 11-11 (3-5 Northwest, fourth)

Returning letter winners (starters): Eight (five)

Top players: G Mikala Kirby (Jr.), G Ashlynn Sharp (Jr.), F KePatriot Simpson (Sr.), C Dajaah Lightfoot (So.), C Sierra Mich’l (Fr.), F Ahmaya Smith (Fr.)

Outlook: Kirby, who averaged 18.6 points per game last year, has the potential to be one of the top players in Southern Nevada.

She’s one of five returning starters for the Diamondbacks, who, despite the large amount of varsity experience, remain young.

“With all five starters returning, expectations are high,” Evans-Gygax said. “We are hoping to make a strong playoff appearance and compete with every team in the league. We are still young, but looking forward to this year.”
