Hoop Hour(s)

by Rhonda Rompola, Women's Basketball Head Coach

First and foremost, I want to remind everyone to please attend our first Hoop Hour tomorrow, Oct. 3rd, 5:30 to 7:30 PM at Trinity Hall in Mockingbird Station. (O.K., so it's two hours, but "Hoop Hours" sounded funny.) We plan to have several of these throughout the season, and in fact the next one is already scheduled for Wednesday, November 7th, same time, same place. The purpose is simply a get-together for coaches and fans in a casual setting where we can all get better acquainted. No speeches, we promise! Just meet, greet, mingle and maybe talk a little basketball. We’re looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow.

The fall recruiting/contact period is almost over. I enjoy recruiting and talking to high school players, but I struggle with being away from our team. We only have two more individual practice sessions left before “real” practice starts October 12th (5 to 7 p.m., in case you’re interested). I am ready to be home and get into the “season” routine. I am already becoming very attached to this team, and am working with our seniors to help them be good leaders. (The lack of any seniors on last year’s squad left a void in this area.)

Get ready for the 2007 – 2008 version of the SMU Women’s Basketball team – it looks like it could be a great ride!
