What can we expect? The Middlebury women’s basketball team has long been one of the major sporting success stories for Middlebury College, and after an off-year last time around, the Panthers will look to put things straight this year. Only three seniors graduated from the team that took the court for Middlebury last year which leaves a core of experienced ballers for the Panthers. The season last year came to a shuddering halt in the NESCAC tournament when Wesleyan beat Middlebury 53-71. The women ended the season with a losing record and is something that the Panthers are committed to changing. The team this year is a little smaller and quicker – it is an entirely different unit to the one that ended last season. On Nov. 22, the season will begin for the women when they travel down to New York for the Baruch Tournament. After a trip to St. Joseph’s on Nov. 22, Middlebury will host its first game of the season when Castleton State roll into town on Dec. 2. With the combination of youth and experience, the Panthers are hopeful for a successful season that will carry them deep into the post-season.
