ABILENE, TX - Success is something synonymous with the ACU Wildcats in conference play.
Over the past three years, they've only lost three conference games.
They’ve ended up winning a couple conference championships as well.
Now fast forward to today and not much has changed.
The squad is not as experienced but they're off to a 5-0 start in conference.
The coaching staff knows there's one thing that's been constant throughout their success and that's their focus level during practice.
"We've noticed a whole new mentality in the conference season over nonconference." Julie Goodenough, ACU Women's Head Basketball Coach. "There is a more serious mentality about practice and I really like that. I think that's showing that our young team is starting to grow up and show some maturity."
ACU will be back at home on Saturday against Northwestern State, before hitting the road for back to back conference games.
