“That's a change for Kendra Suttles,” Littell said. “A very positive change. I'm proud of her that she's playing harder.”
Added Suttles: “Last year, (Littell) used to get on me a lot about not playing hard. I know if I'm getting on the floor, that's me trying to play hard. I'm just trying to do a lot of that more this year.”
Suttles started 20 games a season ago, and Littell said he's open to tweaking this year's lineup at times for specific personnel matchups. For now, though, Suttles is a key component of a relatively thin bench for the Cowgirls.
And she's happy to fill any role that's needed.
“I'm willing to play whatever position my team needs me to,” she said. “I don't really like to just score that much. I like to help my team out and do what I have to.”
