The women's basketball team kicked off the 2010-11 season Tuesday with its first official full-team practice. The Hawks return a pair of starters from the 2009-10 cast, which includes senior point guard Jackie Smith and sophomore Ruthanne Doherty, who both earned post season honors last year.
Smith will look to guide the Hawks back to the America East Championship, after leading the team to its first ever undefeated conference campaign in its 34 year history. Doherty will have large shoes to fill, needing to step up following the loss of the 2010 America East Player of the Year Diana Delva, and the Defensive Player of the Year Erica Beverly.
The women’s basketball team will spend the next six weeks preparing for the 2010-11 season opener against Central Connecticut State University. The season is scheduled to tip-off in New Britain, Conn. on Friday, November 12 at 7:00 p.m.
