Morton Governors

Last season's record: 6-15.

Head Coach: Rick Boner.

"We have more depth this year than we did last season. We're also a lot bigger and we'll play more physical. ... Last year my goal was to finish .500, but we got nowhere near it. I think .500 is a realistic goal this season."

* Top returning rebounder: Keilman, 6 rpg.

Sha'kie Kemp's Breakdown

* What we do well: We talk well on the floor. It may not be good talk, but at least we try. We especially talk well on defense, to let each other know what's going on.

* What we need to work on: Just bonding as a team. We have different players on the team from last season, like Katie (Phelps, a transfer from Bishop Noll) and Marie (Malmquist, from Sweden). So it's just a matter of jelling.

* Our most embarrassing moment last year was: Working as individuals instead of as a team. We had verbal fights last year because of miscommunication.

Our Breakdown

Einsele says the Govs are working better as a unit and are improving offensively, so expect less hair pulling and more wins for Morton this season. Malmquist is unproven, but Boner said she could be a huge addition. Phelps coming in from Noll is a huge help. Expect Keilman to put up double figures in scoring and rebounding and Morton to prove its coach right about a .500 season.
