Arkansas State women’s basketball tips off 2022 preseason practice
JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - Arkansas State women’s basketball held their first practice Thursday afternoon.
The scarlet and black garnered plenty of headlines in the offseason. There’s 7 newcomers including 4 D1 transfers. One of the new Red Wolves is Batesville great and former Mizzou guard Izzy Higginbottom. 5 players are back that saw considerable minutes last season. That includes Sun Belt Freshman of the Year Lauryn Pendleton.
Destinee Rogers got the nod as head coach after serving as interim for the final 18 games last season.
“Well, I feel like we got off to a slow start,” Rogers said after Thursday’s practice. “But the big thing with this team is preaching when we hit adversity, how are we going to overcome that. We got off to a slow start today but they bounced back. And they bounced back with great communication, great energy, great execution. So I was proud of that. We have a really good team, I’m really excited about this team. And we’re going to go to work every single day, and they understand that. They understand what Nets Ain’t Free means: And that means paying the price every single day if you want to cut that net. So we’re looking forward to tomorrow and getting back after it.”
