St. Francis Men, Women Ready to Run
LORETTO -- St. Francis' men's and women's basketball teams are both hoping to get offensive for the 2013-14 season.
Men's head coach Rob Krimmel, entering his second season leading the Red Flash, says he's hoping to use an experienced backcourt to help carry momentum from the end of last season. St. Francis finished 5-24 but all five wins came in Northeast Conference play including three in the final month of the season.
Guards Earl Brown, a junior, and sophomores Greg Brown and Ben Millaud-Meunier are expected to led the Red Flash on offense. Earl Brown (10.1 ppg, 8.1 rbg) is St. Francis' top returning scorer and rebounder. Millaud-Meunier made nearly 48% of his three-point shots in 2012-13. Forward Stephon Mosley will also contribute on offense, scoring last season at an 8.3 ppg clip.
Speaking of offense, the women's team wants to be "run-and-gun". Head Coach Joe Haigh, starting his second season since replacing Susan Robinson-Fructhl, hopes to emulate the Loyola Marymount men's teams of the late-1980's. Haigh wants the Red Flash women to have approximately 85 posessions per game, taking one shot every 10-15 seconds.
Haigh will rely on senior Alli Williams to lead the Red Flash in 2013-14. Williams, a Bishop Guilfoyle grad, is a unanimous preseason Northeast Conference selection. She led St. Francis last season with 17.0 points per game and 10.7 rebounds per game. Williams was fourth in the nation in double-doubles (24) and fourth in the nation in steals per game (3.61).
St. Francis was picked to finish fourth in the NEC preseason poll.
