With the 2014-15 season quickly approaching, the Grand Rapids Community College women’s basketball team is preparing for what should be an exciting year in the Michigan Community College Athletic Association.
“Our conference is so competitive,” third-year coach Tracy Little said. “I love that and hate that at the same time. It’s so competitive that everyone must bring their ‘A’ game every night.”
Returning only four players from last season’s 10-16 team, GRCC is going to rely on their solid play and leadership to guide the talented incoming freshmen.
“Everybody is competing for a job and that makes it very exciting for both the coaching staff and for the ladies,” Little said. “Healthy competitiveness pushes everyone to grow.”
Changing this year to a perimeter and guard oriented offense, fans should expect see a whole new dimension of play when GRCC takes to the court this season.
The team’s first home game is against Mid-Michigan Community College at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 5 at Ford Fieldhouse.
