Keys to the season: The development of the freshmen players to get better each day and practice, be able to handle the ball and control the game better than last year, not a lot of height so they have work on positioning and boxing out on the boards, foul shooting I have really pushed the foul shooting in the open gyms and the have improved since last year, the Lady Fires have to be able to play a good man to man defense, our returning starters have to get better this year.
