MSU women's basketball steps up recruiting

(Continued)

The future also looks bright with next year's signings, two guards and two interior players. The 2014 class looks like it will be pretty good, too.

It's a positive change in Minnesota State women's basketball where the competition for playing time and scholarship money is intense. In the coming seasons, there will be fewer names on the roster that don't contribute. With two solid recruiting classes, Thiesse has returned the program to the position of challenging for national-tournament berths, not just hoping to have a winning record.

She and her staff have been aggressive this summer, and it seems to be paying off.
