An overtime win at Wake Forest highlighted the non-conference schedule last season and a late-season push got the Huskies into the Southland Conference Tournament. There’s plenty to build on for HBU, which returns all-conference selection Ian DuBose and will have talented freshman Myles Pierre at point guard.
Eight returnees, including Marilyn Nzoiwu and point guard Megan Valdez-Crader, the team’s second-leading scorer and assist leader, will be aided by five freshman, which includes 6-foot-4 Abbey Sutherland, are positioned to make the Huskies competitive.
The anchors are in place in post Josh Ibarra, who was limited to nine games due to injury, and senior point guard Braxton Bonds, the catalyst. The Huskies will continue to push the ball and are expanding the role of sophomore Ian DuBose, the only Husky to start every game.
