No team is more excited to start fresh this winter than the Massachusetts women's basketball team.

"Last year is over with and we can't do anything about it," said sophomore forward Rashida Timbilla. "We are a new team this year and that's how we are going to approach every situation. We want to bring a new attitude to this team."

This year's squad, which includes 12 underclassmen, has already brought a new identity to the women's basketball team in just a few short weeks of practice...
