"She can play anywhere from the power forward to the point guard," Calabrese said. "Ideally, she is a shooting guard/small forward and is more comfortable on the wings, but there are times where we let her run point but also times we put her on the blocks.
"She was just a freshman last year, and we put her in the starting lineup early. I thought she progressed a lot as the year went around. It's tough to come into our conference as a freshman and produce. We are expecting big things from her."
Calabrese expects huge roles from Lee, Wood and Carter, as well as sophomore centers Tiffany Reavis and Dashia Foster. The 6-0 Foster is a transfer from Huntington St. Joe, and was the starting center on the championship team last season.
Calabrese indicated his team is a diverse unit, which will allow him to play different lineups based on the Cougars opponents.
"The things is we have some depth this year," Calabrese said. "I've never been blessed with this at Capital, where we have about three girls at 5-11 or 6-0 tall. We can go with a bigger lineup or can downsize against other teams.
"At times, we think we might go with three big players and two guards opposed to what we done in the past with five guards. We are trying to find different combinations and fitting the pieces of the puzzle together."
No matter the lineup, Calabrese still hopes to what he believes is his team's main strength, their defensive intensity.
"We still like to press people and be more aggressive on the defensive end," Calabrese said. "We were pretty successful mainly on pressure and our guards. We were able to man press teams, and we still want to maintain that."
