Coach Grant Cole’s Comments

Coach Cole said, “The Auburn Girls Basketball team looks to be very competitive this season. We have three returning starters and five letter winners coming back from a successful 2017-2018 season. “The key for us starts on the defensive end. We need to commit to playing great team defense and turn that into points on the offensive end. “Offensively we are very versatile and can score in many different ways. I like our post presence inside and we have shooters who we can spread the floor. “I look forward to watching this group come together as a team and compete at a high level,” he said.
