The Purple Eagles are making positive steps after winning just eight games in both 2015-16 and 2016-17. This will be the fourth season for head coach Jada Pierce, whose team found its footing after a 1-8 start last year. Key returners include junior guard Jai Moore, who averaged 10.3 points per contest, as the team will be looking for options after the exit of Victoria Rampado, the program’s all-time leading scorer and rebounder. A six-person recruiting class comes in to help fill the gaps, arguably led by 6-2 forward Valentina Pepic, who averaged more than 20 points and 10 rebounds per game as a junior in high school.
