Today is the first day of the new year for the Naia Women’s Basketball Program. After an exciting season that featured a trip to the NCAA Tournament, the Naia Women’s Basketball team has set its sights on the 2020-21 season. As a team, the Naia women have some exciting young faces on their roster. The three most important players to the team are seniors Marissa DeSouza, who hails from the Chicago area and plays forward, Aliana St.
The Naia women are not only hoping to make a deep run in 2019-20, they are also hoping to find a new head coach. It’s been a trying season for the team, but they’ve also been dealing with a number of injuries. And with the new year comes a new chance to change the team and find a new coach.
On the women’s side, the most notable players are seniors Marissa De Souza, who hails from the Chicago area and plays forward. She is expected to play her senior season at Illinois and will be a key part of the team. The Naia women’s best player is junior Aliana St, who hails from the Chicago area and plays center. She is also a key part of the team, scoring in double figures most of the season.
On the men side, senior Kaleb Robinson and senior Kyle Smith hail from the Chicago area and both play point guard. Robinson started to play last season but was injured, and Smith was benched for a lot of the season. It’s likely that both will return next season, and both are expected to be major contributors to the team.
It might seem like the Naia women are a little more talented than the Naia men. However, when you look at their current roster, you see that they still have some major talent on the team. Senior D’Andre Miller is a 6’8″ forward who grew up in the Chicago area and is the leading rebounder for the team. He is also one of two guys averaging double-digit rebounds (with sophomore Brandon Jackson).
The two are obviously not the same player, but both are solid contributors for the team. It’s likely that both will be back next season, and both are expected to be major contributors to the team.
I think the two players are a bit of a stretch, but they are both very good players. They have the same athleticism, intelligence, and leadership qualities, so I do sense that they have played together. Still, I think that Miller and Jackson could be the two best players on the team, and I think that they will be.
I’m not sure what the best player on naia is, but I think that both are solid contributors. Miller and Jackson are both very good athletes, while Naia’s team is a bit of a mess. Miller and Jackson are both very good shooters, while Naia’s team is pretty much a disaster. I mean, they had a solid attack, but they ended up having no impact in the paint, and now they’re both gone.
The only player on naia with any chance of being top 10 on the team is Naias’ senior center, and he’s probably going to be the worst player on the team. It’s obvious that he’s not the best player on the team.
I feel like I need to add that naias is ranked way too high on the team, especially in the paint. Its a very solid team with a great offense, but their defense is just a bit below average with all the ball-hogging and shooting. Its a good team with great potential to be great, but I feel like they just get dominated.
