Captains: Senior, junior and sophomore

Coach Danny O’Banion announced an interesting trio of captains:
MIKELL CHINN — the team’s senior point guard. Clearly the floor leader but not at all a scorer. A junior college transfer who started last season as a reserve.
MELANIE STUBBS — a redshirt junior who missed all of last season because of a knee injury. Started 10 games as a sophomore but didn’t play a major role. Is the last player on the team recruited by former coach Bob Lindsay.
LARISSA LURKEN — Just a sophomore but the team’s third leading scorer (7.8 points per game) last year. Started every game until she was hurt and missed five games at mid-season.
The three had to apply in written, interview with the coaches and staff, then were chosen by the coaches and players.
They have a combined 3.46 cumulative GPA.
