TALLAHASSEE, Fl. (WTXL) - This season, the Florida A&M women's basketball team can't participate in postseason play due to a self imposed ban from NCAA violations, but that doesn't mean they're not working hard.

Summer conditioning is underway for the Lady Rattlers, and Interim Head Coach Kevin Lynum said playing for a championship is still a very real thing, as they can still win the regular season MEAC title. Summertime is the best time for individual players to perfect things, and make sure they can accomplish that goal.

"Right now, is the opportunity, I call it putting tools in your bag," he said. "During the season, we're going over a lot of team concepts, things like running plays, but the opportunity to really develop yourself as a player, individually, that's where we get that great work in, in the summer. So, just really identifying players' weaknesses and really going at those throughout the summer is what's really going to help us in the fall and the season to come."
