Women’s basketball continues to improve

This season is all about improvement for the Lady Eagles. In just her second year at the helm, Head Coach Katie Levis is looking for her players to improve their play throughout the season.

“Our focus is less about wins and losses and more about improving as a team and as individuals,” Levis said. “We are a young team and are not looking past this season but also know we are improving for the future.”

This season, the Eagles recorded their first MAC victory after only a few games. It was an impressive one-point win over a tough FDU-Florham squad.

“The game we just played against FDU, our first MAC win, was our best to date,” Levis said. “We are continuing to get better. I expect that we will continue to get better every game.”

The Eagles are finding ways to score, averaging 61 points in their victories this season. First-year Bekah Roland leads the scoring, averaging 17 points a game. Levis likes the way her team has been playing lately which may produce more wins over the next few weeks.

“Our team has really come together over the last few weeks,” Levis said. “They work hard every practice and are dedicated to creating a stronger team unit and working to improve their teamwork on the court.”

Overall, the Eagles have been playing as a team which is what coach Levis preaches.

“Right now, we need to continue to build our skill and our team chemistry,” Levis said. “Different players are stepping up and that is what we need. (We do not) rely on any one player – (we want) to win as a team.”
