Coach: Lauren Galvani, fifth season (32-67)
2018-19 Record: 10-15, 6-8 in Southwestern 4A
• Starting Five: Braylyn Milton, 5-11 junior guard (15.8 points, 4.2 rebounds, 3.6 steals, 3.5 assists); Trinity Thompson, 5-5 senior guard (20.0 points); Ayanna Anderson, 6-0 senior post (6.4 points, 7.4 rebounds); Gracie Breckenridge, 6-2 junior post (3.8 points, 6.1 rebounds); Laura Flynn, 5-7 senior guard (2.5 points, 3.4 rebounds)
• Rotation Players: Azuria Barrino, 6-1 senior post (5.3 points, 6.0 rebounds); Alex Barrino, 5-11 senior post; Averie BiBenedetto, 5-4 junior guard
• The Dish: The Patriots had risen each year under coach Galvani, but took a slight step back in the tough conference. Milton holds over 10 Division I offers and will welcome Thompson to the lineup after she averaged 20 points a game on a 3-18 Harding team. Her scoring will be a welcomed addition. Anderson would make a perfect third scoring option, and the Patriots have plenty of size with Anderson, Breckenridge and the Barrino sisters. All is well in Indy right now, and the Patriots should earn that all-elusive playoff berth for Galvani this season.
