The Knoxville Girls Basketball Squad hopes to be a more balanced team this season. For the last few seasons, the Panthers have relied on one or two players to do most of the scoring. However, after graduations, Coach Jim Utiermarkt does not have a go to girl that can score 10-15 points per game. Utiermarkt says they have switched to a flex style offense this season to give everyone on the floor an opportunity to score. He says patience will have to be a big virtue for Knoxville this season. Utiermarkt adds it is an adjustment for everyone, but the girls are making progress.
