Junior Guard, Morgan Eye
On being a leader of the team...
"I try to be. I make sure that the younger girls feel comfortable and know what to expect. So, I try to help out as much as I can in that aspect."
On helping the underclassman players...
"I try to tell them what Coach P. expects of us an what we all expect of each other and things like that."
On what the focus will be in the next few weeks...
"We have talked a lot about bringing intensity to practice each and every day. We want to be different than anyone else in the nation in that. Coach P. wants us to bring it every single day and Coach P. wants us to be consistent in that aspect. Just the little things like running hard and boxing out and crashing out and doing the little things like that."
Sophomore Point Guard, Lianna Doty
On having freshmen playing a good deal of minutes this season...
"The one over there, Jordan, I am going to expect her to contribute. She is extremely athletic and it is fun for me because she just runs straight down the court and there is no one that can keep up with her. To be able to lead that is really fun. Then in addition, Kayla (McDowell) is one that can play with her back to the basket and we have never really had that and it is really nice to keep the defense honest and in a little bit."
On Tania Jackson playing with Bri Kulas down low...
"I think it is going to be awesome. They are really good friends off the court and their chemistry is just going to translate onto the court. Obviously, she has been out with her knee so much that so she doesn't have a lot of practices. It obviously hard for her but she is one that can stretch the floor and get to the rack and another very athletic player."
Head Coach, Robin Pingeton
On the upcoming season...
"I think that every year it is different personell and experience levels. Going in to the season, we anticipate having one senior in Bri Kulas and having junior Morgan Eye. We are very fortunate with the addition of Tania Jackson, who had to appeal the SEC to get that fifth year for her. So, she is our other senior. We are just young and it is our second year in the SEC so that helps and there are still some unknowns in regards to travel and some things that we haven't done yet. I don't know that there is ever a season where you can say that you just pick up where you left off and it is identical to the season before. It is new personalities, different players stepping up and so it will be fun to see how everything comes together."
On the intensity the team wants to bring this season...
"I was proud of our girls. Anytime you are playing against yourselves for this many months in a row it gets tough. I thought it served its purpose. I thought our girls got a chance to interact with the community during autograph session. It gave our fans the opportunity to see some of our young kids and new faces. It gave our young kids a chance to get their feet wet and play through some of the jitters. Even for some of our returning, it is not like our returning class has a lot of experience either. Two teams which were pretty evenly matched and that was by design. It was nice to see it played out that way. Definitely some positive, but there are things we need to work on it. We are nine practices in and it is what you expect at this time of the year."
