Last year: 7-14

Team breakdown

The Eagles had a tough offseason following their first sub-.500 season since 2008-09. First, they lost senior Alisha Hays to an ACL injury, and she's finishing her rehabbing now with the hope to return before the end of the season. She'll need to be eased back into a lineup that also lost junior Joshlynn King with a knee injury. While King, who was already taking in a few Division-I looks as a sophomore, is evaluated Bowman will rely on a couple of freshman. Briana Joiner is a hot guard full of potential and Brianna McCarter is already 6-foot-1. The experience of sophomore Rodnikka McCormick will pedal the Eagles through the early stretch of the season. "I think coming from last year, the girls realize that it's not about the individual," coach Janora Holmes said.. — Hillary Smith

Star power

Briana Joiner, Fr. G: Holmes said that Joiner's ball-handling is some of the best she's seen in the gym since the graduation of Princess German. Joiner is already a hyped name on the AAU circuit.

Newcomer to watch

Rodnikka McCormick, So., G/F: The sophomore will be a bigger scoring threat with the loss of Joshlynn King. She has the maturity to take on the role.
