Dear Falcon Fans,
Basketball season is just around the corner and our team has been preparing with great energy and anticipation to take the court on November 5th for an exhibition game with Metro State. We have been officially practicing for nearly a month, working hard to incorporate all of our players' talents and abilities into a system that will allow us to compete at a higher level in the Mountain West Conference. We are extremely proud of how much our athletes have been training and are impressed with the progress we continue to make from week to week. Our team may be hard to recognize this season as we have gone to a much more up-tempo style of play. The players have responded well to the change and seem to be having fun flying up and down the court within the construct of our scheme.
If anything, here are three things to expect from Air Force Women's Basketball this season:
1.) High scoring games. We will fast break every chance we get, and focus on scoring early in the shot clock through sets that exploit defensive weaknesses at the point of attack.
2.) Forced chaos on defense from end line to end line. We will full court press, trap, and confuse our opponents on defense. It is important that our defense not only to hold in half court situations but also generate easy baskets for our team in transition.
3.) Fun and affordable entertainment for sports fans of all ages. It is our hope to create one of the best environments in the Mountain West Conference for watching women's basketball at unmatched value. We will work hard to make sure that your experience inside Clune Arena is well worth the price of admission. Our coaching staff and players are always accessible and genuinely enjoy developing relationships with our fans. We want you to be a part of our family as we continue to build in the right direction. Please be sure to say hello anytime you are around, stop by practice, or stick around following games to speak with us.
Your support is instrumental to the success of our team and means more to our players then you could imagine. We look forward to getting started this season and for you to watch our team compete. You will enjoy the product we put out on the court and will be proud of your cadet athletes.
