Last season was my first full season covering the Marquette Golden Eagles women's basketball team. It started on Media Day and ended with a tough loss in the NCAA tournament in Chicago.
In 2018-19, junior guard Isabelle Spingola played in all 35 games. That followed her sophomore season in which she played all 34 games. She averaged 5.2 points per game and 2.2 rebounds, while also having two blocked shots and 12 steals. Her season high was 24 points.
Prior to Marquette, Isabelle starred at Whitney Young High School in Chicago. ESPN ranked her at #46 among guards by ESPN Hoopgurlz in 2016.
Marquette had a bit of a disappointing end to last season. After the season, Coach Carolyn Kieger left to accept the position at Penn State. Former Notre Dame standout guard Megan Duffy is the new coach.
The 2019-'20 season is going to be interesting. I look forward to another season of covering the team and I will bring that coverage here, on Patch,com and online for Global Traveler.
