Augusta, GA -- We're just a couple of weeks away from the start of the college hoops season and look for Augusta State to take the next step in being more competitive in one of the toughest conferences in the nation, the Peach Belt Conference.
All five starters return for Nate Teymer, who's now in his third year at the helm and the expectations of winning are greater then ever. Not just the starters back, a couple of transfers could make an immediate impact.
The biggest key this year, putting a full 40 minutes together every night they take to the court.
Teymer said, "You can't take anything for granted, its one of those things where everytime you step on the floor, you have to prove yourself over and over again. I think our girls understand it, it's just you have to do it now once you get out on the floor."
"Sometimes we came out last year and we waited until the second half to play," said guard J Ashby. "We have to start playing from the jump ball so we have to get going quick this year and play all 40 minutes and not just one half or just in spurts."
ASU finished 7 and 11 in the conference a year ago and hope to get over the 500 mark this season.
The opener is actually next Saturday on the road.
