The Abilene Christian women’s basketball team opened WAC play with a pair of victories. And both victories came in different fashion. Head coach Julie Goodenough joined Derryl and Kyle on the podcast on Tuesday to talk about the Wildcats, the WAC, COVID and other interesting topics. Goodenough knew that if ACU wasn’t going to be Division I, she would not be the a Wildcat. But, once she was told ACU was going Division I, she hit the ground running and hasn’t looked back.
Goodenough talks about COVID issues and working through those. But, the mindset for the Wildcats is to play as many games as possible. There is no gamesmanship in the minds of the Wildcats and Goodenough makes that very clear. It is quite the thought process.
Abilene Christian swept its first weekend of WAC play. And it was in a different manner for both games. On Thursday, the Wildcats won with defense and by hitting some timely shots. Either way, a win is a win and ACU got things started off on the right foot.
