MANHATTAN (KSNT) – After getting to the 2nd round of the NCAA Tournament last year, the K-State women’s basketball team is hoping for a deeper run this season and for seasons to come.
“We’d be pretty disappointed if we weren’t back in the tournament,” said Jeff Mittie, who is entering his 3rd year as head coach. “I’ll be saying that from this point forward every year because we have gotten to this point.”
In just his second year, Mittie took a team that finished they year 11-19 in 2014, and turned it around to be a NCAA Tournament caliber team.
After a great summer though, this team believes it can go even deeper.
“I think we’re pretty confident,” said Kindred Wesemann, K-State senior guard. “Everyone’s shooting the ball pretty well, we’re running up and down, we’re doing everything we can to make ourselves better and to be able to compete with the best.”
Wesemann and Senior Breanna Lewis have anchored this team since Mittie took over, and according to the 6’5 senior Lewis, this team is one to be excited about.
“I feel like throughout my years here, this team has been on of the best teams of the summer that I’ve probably played with,” Lewis said.
The Wildcats will start their season with an exhibition game against Washburn on November 4th.
