Numerous times during the 2016-17 season, Manhattan College women's basketball coach Heather Vulin said her first year would serve to build a culture and a style of play.

The product on the court, on the other hand, was disappointing. The Jaspers went 8-22, and were bounced out of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tournament in the first round. Immediately following the loss, Vulin admitted the season's struggles were partly due to the lack of depth on the roster.

“In terms of execution of our game plan, it was really frustrating for me that our Achilles heel all year was we didn't have people consistently knock down open shots, and rebounding was a major struggle,” Vulin said March 2.

Vulin has now addressed the lack of depth with her first recruiting class, consisting of six players: Sini Mäkelä, Tuuli Menna, Lizahya Morgan, Nyala Pendergrass, Lynette Taitt and Courtney Warley.
