Testa's coaching philosophy is a simple one.
"I don't want the kids thinking," Testa said. "I want to teach them the game of basketball and let them go play. You have to prepare the kids and let them go. We will go after it on the defensive end and attack on offense. It's a style the fans will enjoy."
Testa has his work cut out for him after six roster members - including five starters - graduated.
"We lost a lot of good players but there still is a lot here," Testa said. "The kids are working so hard. They would run through a wall if I asked them too. They are doing whatever it takes to get to the next level."
Four players who saw playing time last season return in Alliyah Webb, Laci Jarrell, Lina Villanueva, and Aryuanna Mosley. Testa will look to them as well as Meredith Lauerman, a 6-foot-3 volleyball standout.
"We don't have a lot of experience but the girls are stepping up and doing the things I ask of them," Testa said.
"Alliyah and Laci have been around for a long time, and have been leading. Their job is to make everybody better, no matter how they can."
Despite losing so much and returning an inexperienced team, the goal remains the same for Testa.
"My goal never changes," Testa said. "We want to win the conference, the section, region, and state tournament. I'll take three of four. I don't care how young they are at the beginning. At the end of the season, they aren't young anymore."
Testa remains in good standing with the new coaching staff at UC, and is using his connections for the betterment of the SC program. Several of the UC players have already been at the Black Eagle practices, and will throughout the season.
