Team breakdown

Wheeler faces some uncertainty this season as star Nickole Finch is leaning toward bypassing her senior year in order to concentrate on softball. Despite Finch's absence, third-year coach Dustin Nelson has high expectations for this season. "I'm having a blast with the girls who are in this gym," Nelson said. "It's fun when you enjoy who you're working with. We're going to be OK." Guards Allie Stevenson and Shannon Eden will lead an experienced backcourt, while a strong freshmen group bring a lot of potential. Courtney Mockler may be one of the most improved players in the conference. — Paul Oren
