In the paint, seniors Betsy Knox, Lily Kuntz and Vanessa Young all return for the Panthers. Knox was a consistent presence at both ends of the floor, averaging 9.1 points and 4.9 rebounds, to go along with a team-best 38 blocked shots. She was also proficient at the free-throw line, converting 75.4 percent (49-65) of her attempts.
Kuntz, who can play both in the paint and around the perimeter, will be relied on for her strong post defense and scoring abilities. Young will also look to find her way onto the court this season, with her outside shooting ability and presence defensively in the key.
