UNIVERSITY CENTER, MI – This month's Women's Basketball "Get to Know" spotlight is redshirt-freshman guard, Bethany McCord. Bethany hails from Warren, Michigan and unfortunately missed the 2013-2014 season due to injury. The Cardinals expect for her to contribute at the guard position next year and are extremely excited about the progress she's made thus far.
Below are a few comments from Head Coach, Jamie Pewinski, about Bethany McCord:
"Bethany is unbelievable athlete that will add a totally different dimension to our team next season. Due to an injury, she was forced to sit out last year. However, she has a tremendous work ethic and a true desire to become a better player which was shown throughout the course of the season.
She was great during post-season workouts and we are excited about what lies ahead for her. Bethany is only beginning to scratch the surface and it's great to see her hard work paying off. I have no doubt with her attitude she will help us tremendously in years to come. We are so glad she's healthy and here with us."
