Coach: JarMark Parker, eighth season (65-103)
2018-19 Record: 14-16, 5-2 in Metrolina Athletic
• Starters: Lilly Reynolds, 5-8 freshman guard (4.7 points, 4.2 rebounds); Emma Phibbs, 5-8 freshman guard; Emily Waters, 5-7 junior wing (7.6 points, 3.4 rebounds); Audrey Strange, 6-0 junior forward (4.9 points, 4.9 rebounds); Anna Phibbs, 5-11 sophomore center (5.1 points, 7.1 rebounds)
• Key contributors: Lizzy Neyens, 5-7 senior wing (2.6 points, 1.8 rebounds); Maggie Miller, 5-11 senior center (2.2 points, 4.4 rebounds, 1.6 steals); Ella McClain, 5-9 sophomore forward (2.7 points, 3.4 rebounds); Deja Watson, 5-11 freshman post; Hannah Sorrentino 5-6 freshman guard; Allie Huneycutt 5-7 freshman wing.
• The Dish: Waters is a two-time all-MAC player and Phibbs was named all-conference last season, so they’ll lead the way. The Warriors are young and talented and expect to compete for the MAC title this year. Last year, they had 10 players average more than two points per game, but nobody average more than 7.6 points. Expect that to change as Phibbs, Waters and Strange will up their scoring, although this team will remain balanced. Coach Parker said this is the best team he’s had at Metrolina on paper, we’ll see if it translates to on the court.
