JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Sept. 30, 2013) – Under first-year head coach Brittney Ezell, the ETSU women’s basketball team officially kicked off preseason practice Monday evening inside the ETSU/MSHA Athletics Center.

This season, the Buccaneers return nine players from the 2012-13 squad. Among the returnees are six players who started 10 or more games last season. Highlighting this group is last year’s team-leading scorer and rebounder senior Destiny Mitchell (Bluffton, Ga.) who led the way with 11.5 points and 8.1 rebounds per game. Amidst a seasoned group of veteran players, ETSU also welcomes three freshmen guards who will try to help bolster the backcourt for the Blue and Gold.

After a long summer of offseason workouts and conditioning, the Buccaneers will continue the fall with full workouts leading up to the start of the season. ETSU will begin game action this season with a home exhibition matchup against Shepherd University on Saturday, Nov. 2.

Be sure to check out Coach Ezell’s video comments before Monday’s practice as well as video action and a photo gallery of the workouts. Also, for more information on the 2013-14 ETSU women’s basketball team check out the quick facts link on the page.
