Daily Collegian staff reporter Joey Saade stopped by UMass women's basketball practice this week to speak to members of the team in advance of the season. The Minutewomen are getting set to open the season at home in the Mullins Center on Friday, Nov. 8, at 7 p.m.

The Massachusetts women's basketball team is ready to turn the page.

After a disappointing 3-26 finish to last season--their worst in 23 years--the Minutewomen are focused on flipping the switch and reversing their fortunes.

If they plan on doing so, they will have to get contributions from the younger players on their roster.

Entering the season, nine out of the 13 players on the roster are entering either their first or second year in collegiate athletics. Three of those players are freshmen Alyx Stiff, Meredith Tarver and Kymber Hill. Another newcomer is redshirt sophomore Amber Dillon, who sat out last season after transferring from Maine.

UMass coach Sharon Dawley is looking forward to coaching these young players as the season gets underway...

Collegian: UMass women's basketball seeks redemption

Andrew Cyr with the Daily Collegian talked to head coach Sharon Dawley and sophomore Rashida Timbilla practice this week to preview the upcoming season, which begins on Friday at the Mullins Center against Western Michigan.

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

The Minutewomen ended the 2012-13 season with 13 straight losses and an overall record of 3-26, which was UMass' worst record since the 1990-91 season.

"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...

The remainder of Cyr's story can be found in the Daily Collegian website. More information on the women's basketball program can be found through UMassAthletics.com.

The Minutewomen basketball team showed its holiday spirit recently, wishing every supporter of UMass athletics a happy holiday season with their second annual "thank you" video. This year, the Minutewomen completed a rendition of Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas Is You."

Have a safe and happy holidays!
