For the second straight season…the Knoxville girl’s basketball squad will enter a new season with very little experience. The Panthers lost their top two scorers and rebounders from last season in which Knoxville turned in a 7-13 season. Alex Abens and Katie Ayers combined for 401 of the team’s 756 points last season. The duo also hauled down a combined 268 rebounds in 2010/2011. The Panthers return just two starters from last season’s squad, Ellie Hawkshead and Hanna Rosenkranz. Knoxville will get its season started next Tuesday against Perry in a neutral site game at Saydel.
