It was a very young Knoxville Girls Basketball Squad this season. At times the Panthers had four freshmen on the court and one sophomore. Coach Jim Utiermarkt says that may have been a reason for the up and down season that the Panthers had. He says for 2013/2014 they will be young again…but inexperienced will not be something that will describe the team. Utiermarkt adds the girls need to be more consistent in shooting and taking care of the ball. Knoxville struggled with 29-percent field goal shooting and committed over 21 turnovers per game. Knoxville finished with an eight-and-14 record.
