Authenticity, vision the driving force behind Mark Campbell's rebuild of TCU Women's Basketball | 247Sports

It’s Campbell’s authenticity that has allowed him to rebuild TCU’s roster in one offseason, setting the Frogs up for immediate improvement while also adding pieces that can contribute for multiple seasons.

Owens and Prince, though, are one-year players in their final season of college ball, who both took a chance on Campbell and TCU. Prince withdrew her name from the WNBA Draft this past offseason, electing to come back to college for one more season, and it took a special coach to make that happen.

“There was no other coach that I would have gone back to college for,” Prince said. “I’m serious. Just the way that he talks to us, he’s so respectful, he’s always truthful. He’s just a good man. I know first and foremost. He’s just an incredible coach. He understands our strengths, our weaknesses and he just wants us to develop.”
