A Yes, absolutely. I still feel very strongly about the core group we have, that establishes our chemistry. But I do think it was time. … Some things had run [their] course. … There is no doubt in my mind this group that we have is going to be hungry again. Something was, in our minds, taken from us by a team in Indiana that was … when I say hungrier, that does not mean we were not hungry. They just had a little bit more than we did, and were extremely physical. And they were able to get it done.

 

Q What are your biggest questions as a coach heading into camp?

A Well, as I mentioned, training camp for me is golden. So how are we going to look in training camp, because I know that’s going to shape the season. Couple late arrivals, quirky schedule, in that we start a week later than everyone else. Maybe that’s a good thing, ’cause I’ll have those three new players that will need a little time. We’ll throw some people into the fire that have been reserve players in Amber Harris and Dev Peters. Janel McCarville is new.

 

Q How will the offense change with McCarville at center?

A Taj … was a very good passer. But having been with Janel the past few weeks, in a minimal X’s and O’s setting … Janel has a gift. I watched it when I followed her at the U. Drafted her in Charlotte, I’ve seen her along the way. We’re going to be even better at — as good as Taj was — Janel is going to be even better in terms of the flow.

 

Q Will not having the Olympics this year help your team?

A That interruption is a challenge. Yes. The very simple answer is yes.

 

Q Will having Lindsay and Janel come back from Europe early and with Moore’s season in China ending early help them be fresh for the season?

A If you talk to [Lindsay] there is a silver lining in that this is the most fresh she’s felt in a while. She has needed this time. So, same thing with Maya, all those guys. I wish Seimone would have had a little more time.

 

Q Is this the time when Moore steps up and becomes more the face of the team?

A The nice thing for me is that I don’t see one face of the franchise. I think that’s what makes us so good. It will never not be Lindsay and Seimone’s team. … Now, does Maya increase her role on the team? Absolutely. I think Maya will take a huge step forward, and that can only be good for us.
