Are you ready for some---basketball?
Can't believe it's been eight months since we've been together at Fifth Third Arena for a UC women's basketball game, but on Saturday the curtain goes up on Jamelle Elliott 2.0.
So what can we expect this season, her second through the BIG EAST as a head coach? Well, Coach Elliott promises it'll be a team that will play hard, a team that will have to depend on its outside sharpshooters to keep the 'Cats on the scoreboard. And, we'll be getting a peak at her first full recruiting class, which will give us a hint of things to come in terms of the type of player she'll be going after, and how that player will fit her style.
And it's not like the 'Cats have a cupcake as an exhibition game on Saturday--they'll be facing the Northern Kentucky University Norse, a perennial Division II powerhouse stocked with local basketball stars. The Norse will give UC a good barometer by which to judge the team, and the talent.
The season rolls out for real with a morning (!) game Friday, November 12. Until then, come see the 'Cats this Saturday night, and catch a preview of good things to come this season.
