The BU basketball teams are getting ready to hit the gym, and this is the year the BU women have been building toward.
A young team the past 2 years, they are now seniors.
But currently without their best player.
Andrea Holmes injured her knee last year, and is still rounding into shape after surgery, with an eye on returning this season.
" My mentality when I go in, whenever I'm able to go in, is to go in free. I mean I'll still be the same basketball player but it's just to go in and have fun, and see where that takes us."
" We're going to go as she goes. If she's got confidence and she's feeling good out there, it's her senior year and I want her senior year to be the best senior year she could possibly have. Non-conference wise will be getting her ready for conference."
October 5th is the 6 month mark after Andrea's surgery. The season starts about a month after that, with the conference season starting January 2nd.
