Women's Hoops to Scrimmage at 9 a.m. Saturday Morning
Oct. 30, 2003
TEMPE, Ariz. - The Arizona State women's basketball team will hold a preseason scrimmage Saturday morning from 9 to 10:30 a.m. at Wells Fargo Arena.
Fans are invited to watch the women scrimmage before ASU's Homecoming football game vs. California at 1 p.m. at Sun Devil Stadium. ASU's men's basketball team will scrimmage at 10:30 a.m. at Wells Fargo Arena. There is no television for the football game.
The Sun Devils return four starters and eight letterwinners from last season's WNIT second-round team including junior guard Carrie Buckner, an honorable-mention All-Pac-10 selection last year; junior point guard Kylan Loney, who has started all 64 games of her short career; and Pac-10 All-Freshman honorees Amy Denson (first team) and Kristen Kovesdy (honorable mention). ASU was set to return all five starters last year, but first-team Pac-10 All-Freshman honoree Jill Noe, who started 29 of 30 games last year, will miss the 2003-04 season after suffering an ACL tear in a preseason workout.
ASU will also regain the services of junior Betsy Boardman who missed all of last season with a knee injury after starting the first 65 games of her career and helping ASU to a share of the 2001 Pac-10 title and the 2002 Pac-10 Tournament championship.
Arizona State opens the 2003-04 season with exhibition games on Nov. 6 and 15 at Wells Fargo Arena. The Sun Devils open the regular season at home with Akron on Friday, Nov. 21 and Grambling State on Sunday, Nov. 23 at Wells Fargo Arena.
