It's officially basketball season! The NAU Women's Basketball team took on UC Santa Barbara last week for their season opener and later went on to play Rice. There were notable players that contributed to a strong offense in both games. With the help of new head coach Loree Payne, it will be exciting to watch the Lumberjacks improve throughout the season! Payne who is a two-time Northwest Conference Coach of the Year is known for her fast paced offense and that is showing this season among the first two games of the season.
