(New Orleans, La.) Loyola University New Orleans head women’s basketball coach Kellie Kennedy announced the team’s schedule for the 2013-14 season. This will mark the fourth season the women’s team will compete in the SSAC and Kennedy’s sixth year as head coach. This season, Wolf Pack fans can anticipate 14 home games, 17 total locally.
"I'm very excited about this year's group,” said Kennedy. “These girls have all the skills necessary to win a championship. The experience of the returners in addition to the versatility of the newcomers will provide us with new opportunities that we didn't have last year. The depth of this team will be greater than that of any group I've had the privilege to coach at Loyola."
