The Bears boast two talented senior captains in Allie Warren and Sydney Greenspan. Sophomore guards Nicole Johnson, Sabria Glasgow and Shanelle Colmon round out the starting five. The dynamic trio of young guards is athletic, explosive and boasts seasoned players despite their age. The Bears have a very balanced and unselfish scoring attack with no starting player averaging more than 10 points per game. Any one of the starting five can be the leading scorer in any given game.
