It’s hard to believe, but basketball season’s finally here. Charlotte 49ers women’s basketball head coach Cara Consuegra sat down with me to discuss the upcoming slate, how practices have been going thus far, the makeup of her team and the return to Conference USA.
The Niners will open with a exhibition game against Johnson C. Smith (the third straight year they’ve done so) tomorrow afternoon at 2pm in Halton Arena. They’ll start their regular season next Friday at Halton against the Liberty Flames at 5pm, part of a doubleheader with the men’s team taking on Elon later that evening. Conference USA play begins January 8 against Old Dominion at home. Can the ladies finally make it to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2009 following four straight WNIT appearances? We’ll find out.
