Holman said offseason work will focus on aggressive play on both ends of the floor.
“We will especially be working on going aggressively to the basket,” Holman said. “The guards and forwards need to learn to make a move to the basket and go in without hesitation.
“I feel we were too hesitant in taking the ball at the opponent.
“When someone got close to us we would stop and basically ‘save’ the other team from picking up fouls. I want them to learn to go to the basket with confidence and aggressiveness and make the basket and pick up the foul, too.
“I will be working with my posts players and teaching them how to work with their back to the basket. They need to learn as well how to make that hard power move to the basket regardless of who is in their way. We will also be doing lots of shooting since our shooting percentage is not near where it needs to be and I would like to be able to play an aggressive man to man defense.”
Holman is excited to begin next season with a veteran team.
“I will have three starters, (Natalie, Riley and Tabby) back next year plus seven other varsity players and some quality junior varsity players that I am already looking at to step up and fill some big shoes next year,” she said. “I feel that I have a great core nucleus of players back, and I want them all ready to play confident, aggressive, in-your-face basketball.
“It won’t happen overnight but it will be a day by day journey.”
Taking the job this past summer, Holman said she was excited to know she would be reuniting and working with past players.
“I started coaching in Mineral Wells ISD in 2009 at the junior high and so I had the pleasure of coaching the current 9-11 graders in seventh-grade basketball,” she said. “When I came here, I really never dreamed I would end up as the head girl’s basketball coach.
