Bennett.jpgDuring Tuesday's NIU Basketball Media Day, the Daily Chronicle's John Sahly caught up with second-year women's basketball head coach Kathi Bennett and asked about the Huskies' competitive status in Year 2.  Bennett's answer was simple: "We have a group of kids who are all, I say highly competitive but I don't know what the word is, but man, none of them want to lose. None of them want to be sitting. They fight to stay on the floor."

Competitiveness will not be a problem for the 2011-12 Huskies.  Click here to read Sahly's article and find out more about what the Huskies are bringing to the table this year.
