    I have never seen her coach but I hope she provides more energy to the program than the previous coach. He just looked bored on the side and the play on the floor reflected it. NC has a lot of girls that should be recruited by schools like Wake but some how end up in other programs. Hopefully the new coach will see the potential from NC girls add some excitement to the program for the players, school and fans. Good Luck to the new coach !
