19 girls are in the Knoxville basketball program this season. Of those 19…two/thirds of those are freshmen. While Coach Jim Uitermarkt tells KNIA/KRLS the 2017/2018 version of the Panthers will be very young and rather inexperienced, he says there are a lot of players that are competing for not only starting spots…but also spots on the varsity roster. The Panthers will have to replace 20 points per game…and the top three rebounders from last season that either graduated or moved out of the district. He tells KNIA/KRLS Sports he is looking at everyone freshman-through-senior to step up in those roles. The Panthers first game is November 21st against P-C-M.
