With the first practice in the books, the anticipation can now build as both teams prepare for their 2013-14 season openers. Despite being in very different positions entering a new season, the expectations remain high amongst both the Men's and Women's programs. The Cumberland Women look to build on an incredible turn around season in which the Dukes went from a 2-25 season in 2011-12 to a 23-5 record and a birth in the Region XIX Championship Game in which they fell just short of a Region Title.
The Cumberland Men will try to use the turn around orchestrated by Head Women's Basketball Coach James Boney as proof and motivation that it can be done. The Men are coming off of a dismal 2-25 record in 2012-13 and are looking to bounce back this year under first-year Head Coach Greg Goodwin.
The Women open their season on the road with games Nov. 1st and 2nd at Prince George and at Anne Arundel. The Men will open up at home on Saturday Nov. 9th when they host Valley Forge. Check out both team's full 2013-14 game schedules on the individual team pages.
