Women’s basketball starts preseason in Colorado

Posted

First-year head coach Lauren Davis is taking the Trapper women’s basketball team to Windsor, Colorado, this weekend to take part in three preseason scrimmages.

The Northwest College team will face off against Dodge City Community College (Kansas), Casper College and College of Southern Idaho (CSI).

“It will be nice to see some teams that we will not see in the regular season,” Davis said.

Davis said the Trappers are hoping to head down to this tournament and get some game time in for her freshman-heavy team, which includes 11 new players this year. Only three student-athletes are returning from last year, the coach said: Tatiana Coleman, Celina Tress and Kierra Cutright.

With the team only being able to begin practice on Oct. 1, Davis said the scrimmages should provide a good opportunity to get acclimated to the speed of college basketball.

Unfortunately, only 10 of the 14 players will be making the trip down to Colorado, as three of the basketball players are also on the soccer team and another is on the volleyball team.

Davis said the team has been working on strength and conditioning through September, along with the players doing shooting drills on their own, as they are unable to practice together officially until the first of the month.

During her first year at the head of the program, Davis is hoping to have her squad become a defensive centric team and one of the teams that others hate to face.

“Obviously every team is different based upon what personnel, but that is what I want us to be known for,” Davis said.

The coach said she looks to bring a motion style to the offense which will allow for her team to move freely and play to their strengths.

Davis is hoping this weekend will benefit the team by building team chemistry and getting used to the pace of the game as they work towards their season opener in early November.
