#MGWBB head coach Mike Petersen Discusses The Upcoming Season, Practice Begins
Sept. 30, 2013
DENTON, Texas - North Texas women's hoops opened up practice for the 2013-14 season today in the Super Pit, and head coach Mike Petersen, now in his second year, gave a little insight into his offseason plan of creating more home dates during the non-con portion of the schedule.
"We are really happy with our non-conference schedule this year because we accomplished the two goals we made for ourselves; to create more home games so our fans could see our team more, and to make sure our schedule is competitive and covered with quality opponents such as Texas A&M and SMU at home, and Oklahoma State and Houston on the road," Petersen said. "This is a really competitive schedule that provides plenty of home dates for us."
The entire team reported to the first day of practice, and with it came the four newcomers, freshmen Candice Adams and Terra Ellison and transfers Joh'Vonna Darrington (Weatherford CC) and California JUCO Player of the Year Janis Peterson.
Petersen's Mean Green will open up its season at home against UMKC on Nov. 9 at 7:30 p.m.
