Head coach: Malcolm Griffin, first season
2015-16 record: 7-12 (2-6 Northwest, fourth)
Returning letter winners (starters): Six (three)
Top players: G Niara Smith (Sr.), G Amoura Whitney (Jr.), Tasia Moore (Jr.)
Outlook: Griffin starts his first full season guiding the Spartans, who return three starters and should be improved this season.
“The Lady Spartans set out on their mission of establishing a winning culture and creating a program that is respectable in Las Vegas,” Griffin said. “We’re very excited about this year’s team and look forward to the challenge of competing in arguably the best conference in the state.”
