VESTAL (WBNG BINGHAMTON) When a new coach takes over a basketball team, there's a good chance that team will look different the next season.

It's not always in terms of players, but the way the team plays the game. Most college head coaches try to instill in their team a certain style of play.

New Binghamton University women's head coach Linda Cimino inherits a team that ranked last in the America East in scoring last season (49.6 ppg).

So, how does she plan to fix the offense?

"I like to run a fast-paced game, I like to push the ball in transition," Cimino said during her introductory press conference.

"I like to have secondary options, I like to play matchup zones, I like to play player-to-player defense, as well. I like to press. I'll see and assess the current roster, what we're good at and what we need to improve on, and take it from there."
