Broncos using lack of size to their advantage
The second-ranked Hastings College women's basketball team (19-0, 11-0 GPAC) is not the tallest team in the NAIA but it has not stopped them from setting a new team record for best start to a season.
"One of the biggest strengths of our team is how fast we are and how athletic we are," Head Coach, Jina Douglas said. "Lot of that has to do is we're playing four guards and Gabby, who is a really good post player. We are undersized but we are pretty scrappy."
The Broncos do not have a single player over six-feet tall, but it has not stopped them from allowing the least amount of points per game in the GPAC (60.1).
"Sometimes when you have the bigger players, it's harder to get down to the court," Senior forward, Gabby Grasso said. "We practice playing against bigger players all the time and just what we can do against it. So, I think we're prepared even though we're smaller."
The Broncos are back in action this Sunday, Jan. 19 at home taking on Mount Marty University at 2 p.m.
