• The Dish: The Cardinals have had two great seasons in a row, including last season’s unbeaten run through the conference. This season, they are replacing leading scorer MaKayla Smith and Mya Manivanh, who has decided to focus on soccer. Those, along with a few other graduations, are big losses, but the Cardinals are still in a good spot. Clark’s stats came on a very good Monroe team, so she’s a welcomed addition. Brooks is a bonafide star who will get even more chances offensively. Coppin and Havican have been in the program for years and do their job well. Clayborn was defensive-minded last year but should look to score more. Fraticelli and Wease will fit into the frontcourt rotation, and the team welcomes Langkopp, who will join the mix.
