During the three-week period Toler is focusing not only on a replacing scorers, but also in making a defensive change and finding a new game mentality.
"We aren't a big team, but the girls are going to have to play like they are," he said. "I need them to rely on their confidence in the game they have. That is going to show us who will lead this team.
"After we get their minds to a winning mentality, I will focus the rest of our summer training on defensive improvements. We are taking big losses, granted we don't have our full team on the court, but we have to lower the numbers if we want a winning season.
"If we can teach these girls some simple, solid defense then the losses will get smaller, and we'll have more wins under our belt."
Toler is also looking for changes beyond his roster of players. After losing Rhoades and Moore last season, he thinks it's going to take not only patience and much trying from the team but also in the Generals' coaching staff.
"It's going to take time to improve and change aspects of our game to make up for losing our leading scorers. Although we only have these three weeks, we are going to anticipate much effort from the staff to help these girls, and most of that will come from patience and re-teaching fundamentals," he said.
"We just want to play the game."
Winfield opens the regular season Dec. 13 at Ripley. The Generals' first home game is Dec. 16, against Princeton.
