Female athlete of the week: Brooke Heiman

• On what was working last week

“I would say what was really working last week was my ability to get to the basket. I think the team worked well on defense and offensively moving the ball around. We played with a lot more energy, more of a fire to win and hustle.

• On how the year has gone

“I would say it was kind of bumpy. We don’t have the best record, but we played a tough schedule compared to other teams in our conference. I’d say it went good considering the tough competition. I thought we played well, we handled it well and improved [in] a lot of aspects. This is an especially young team, and we’re building things for next year and years to come.”

• On what needs to improve for the team next season

“On offense, we could improve on more people being able to score and move the ball around better. We need to look at open people and go against pressure better. Really, we need to handle zone, man and the press. For defense, I’d say just to be on our girl and not get burnt and learn how to play help defense and rebound. What we struggle on, I think is help defense and rebounding, and if we get that down, we’ll have a lot more success.”
