  1. Wouldn't surprise me if Grace or Maddie cracked the starting line-up. Both were playing well at the end and we need some size desperately.
  2. I noticed Mariella Fasoula of Boston College is opting to transfer. Led the team in scoring and rebounding. Named to All ACC Freshman team. She's a 6'4" post player. No mention of schools she is considering.
  3. Could be. Looks like they have been discussing a 4 year extension since last summer, but, don't see anything signed yet. I read they had a major roster overhaul prior to this season. She brought in 8 new players, 4 Juco's, 2 transfers, and 2 freshmen. Obviously, this quick fix didn't work.
  4. Her choice of schools/coaches, might be an indication of her desire to reach her potential. If she selects a school, with demanding coaches, still no guarantee she will give the effort. If she opts for a less demanding atmosphere, enjoy it kid. You're only young once. I wish her the best.
  5. I enjoy watching them play. Then again, could have guessed. Grew up liking Yankees, Celtics, Packers, and the Huskers. I seem to like the winners. Have to admit, didn't root for Tiger at first, but miss his presence on the tour now.
  6. Disappointing. I was looking forward to a new and improved team/Jess next year. I guess there is yet a chance, the team could be improved. I too wonder if Eichorst is earning his pay. "Didn't mess up volleyball" isn't much to hang your hat on.
  7. Maryland vs Oregon just started on ESPN if interested.
  8. Mississippi State might be a tough out. 6'7" and 6'5" ladies in the middle, with athleticism to run the court, doesn't hurt. Baylor will have their hands full. There was a stretch in the Washington game, when McCowan (6'7") seemed to block every shot taken, then run down the court and score. You could tell she was having fun by the smile on her face as she ran. Enjoyable to watch. Now that Natalie is out, think I'll pull for Mississippi State, at least vs Baylor.
  9. Enjoyed the article. Thanks.
  10. I'd be happy with a 500 record next year. Not "giddy" by any means, but OK.
  11. Sunday morning "IF" ing. If Taylor picks up the game quickly, if Nicea and Hannah make a nice frosh to soph jump, if Maddie keeps improving, if Jess keeps working hard, if Rachel is healthy, and, if the transfers can take the pressure off Hannah and help shore up the defense and turnover issues, we could have vastly improved team next year. Call me optimistic, but I could see it happening.
  12. Not sure school size matters. Much of the evaluation is done during AAU participation. Still, being from a small school isn't a curse. Jordan Hooper, Karen Jennings, Nicole Kubic, Amy Stephens, Anna DeForge, and even Kelsey Griffin weren't Metro area kids. They seemed to do OK. Having said the above, I have no dog in this fight. For the Lady Huskers benefit, I hope this girl is the real deal. GBR
  13. I thought she ran the court much better the last couple of minutes. Even sprinted a couple of times. Don't know, but seemed she was instructed to stay away from trouble because of the foul situation. Not sure last night was a good measuring stick for her. First time I've seen her play. Reminded me of a coaches kid/gym rat type of player that will help a team in many ways. Like speed, you also can't teach height. Never know, she might grow another inch in the next year. I trust our coaches know what they're doing.
  14. Nothing went her way tonight. Questionable fouls put her in trouble early, took away her aggressiveness. She was the focus of the Treynor defense. Still impressed enough to be named honorary captain on the all tournament team.
