River Valley coaching icon Carl Ramsey retired at the end of last season. Former assistant coach Kourtni Williams will take over the program. Guards Hailey Ostrander and Kate Smith return for their senior seasons. Ostrander was named All-Conference after finishing thirteenth in the league in scoring (13.0) and tenth in three-point percentage (33.3%). She also averaged 1.3 steals, 3.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game. Smith averaged 7.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game. Sophomore forward Cassie Emerson averaged 9.0 points and 3.7 rebounds en route to earning a spot on the conference All-Freshman Team. Senior forward Diamond Goodwyn is back after averaging 12.5 points and 7.0 rebounds per game. Sophomore guard Kamryn McKinney played in all 25 games last season and scored 6.4 points per game. The Eagles will also benefit from the return of Delanei Stephens, who missed all of last season. Stephens was named to the conference All-Freshman Team two years ago after finishing seventh in the league in rebounding (7.5) and averaging 10.4 points per game. “Right now our work ethic is definitely our main strength,” said Williams. “Effort isn’t something I have to worry about with this group. And, we have multiple players that have range and can shoot the ball. Even some of our inside players can step out and knock it down. I also think depth is another strength of the team. We have several players that have an opportunity to contribute. We have a lot of experience at the guard spot.” The Eagles are coming off a tough year, winning just four games, but the team is focused on making changes to improve. “Last year we turned the ball over too much. A point of emphasis this season is taking care of the basketball and reducing turnovers.”

The Eagles return five players with at least some starting experience from last season and will benefit from having a pair of inside players returning from injuries. A pair of younger players combined with a veteran player lead the Eagles at the guard position. Sophomores Bryson Johnson and Zach Bobo made an impact last season, and Skyler Barnes returns for his senior season at the guard spot. Johnson, 5-foot-11, averaged 8.3 points and 4.3 assists last season. Bobo, 6-foot-5, made the American Southwest Conference East Division All-Freshman Team. He finished second on the team in scoring (10.5) and third in rebounding (5.0). Barnes, 6-foot-3, averaged 8.0 points and hit 30-of-74 (40.5%) from the three-point line. Senior Clay Conley and junior Kenneth Williams provide the Eagles with more depth at the guard spot. Sophomore forward Ethan Bowman displayed flashes of potential a year ago after transferring in at semester. There will be plenty of competition for playing time as the coaching staff brought in a talented group of new players. Inside player Tim Turpin, who stands 6-foot-6, scored 8.0 points and grabbed 3.3 rebounds per game and will be joined by big men Cory Wilhelm and Kelvin Knight, both of whom are coming off injuries. The Eagles are coming off a 3-22 record last season, but Carruthers has already seen a difference early on. “We are going to go as far as we grow together,” said Carruthers. “I have a firm belief that the teams that have a sense of togetherness, go the furthest. My expectation is to get better and grow more together each day.”
