“She's one of the best two-guards around,” Bass said.

Santa Fe doesn't have the depth it did last season but Bass said if the front line stays healthy, the Wolves could contend again.

“We may not be 10 deep like we were but they can play,” Bass said. “We're still very aggressive in what we do.

JANZEN HAPPY TO BE AT DESTINY

After serving as an assistant last season, Lori Janzen has taken over as head coach.

Destiny Christian returns three starters from last season.

“We've got a pretty good team back,” Janzen said. “The girls are playing together this year and getting better.”

Among the most critical returners is senior Larissa Runyan.

Runyan averaged 11.4 points and 8.8 rebounds last season.

“She's strong down low,” Janzen said. “But she can also shoot the three when we need her to.”

Destiny Christian also returns Sarah Maynord and Tiffany Thurmond at the guard spots.

“Tiffany's the one that holds the team together,” Janzen said. “Sarah's a very good shooter and never gets down.”
