Down 75 percent of its scoring from last winter, the Menominee Indian girls basketball team is looking for players to step up.
The loss of three seniors, Ania Smith, Taylor Mahkimetas and Kelsey Corn, leaves the Eagles with a massive gap in production. Head coach Chris Rice doesn’t yet know who will score for Menominee Indian, but it also means opponents, especially early in the season, won’t have an idea of how to develop a game plan against the Eagles.
“We don’t have that one player they can key on, but at the same time, who can step up?” Rice asked.
It also means that all five players on the court are going to have to work together to find ways to score.
“Losing Ania, we don’t have somebody we can really rely on, like a go-to person,” senior guard Autumn Chevalier said. “We’re going to have to work a lot harder this year.”
