  1. a little surprised with this observation--------do you think she could handle fennelly(sp)?
  2. i believe white averaged around 18 minutes a game and a little over 8 points. not exactly the white big ten fans were used to seeing. i tuned into an fsu game, oh, maybe late jan early feb to see how she was doing. i was a little surprised. she didn't get in much and when she did, she appeared to look healthy. so........ i guess when a team is winning and expectations are high, odds are players are a little more content.
  3. i thought if Kim Barnes Arico could get her squad to buy into playing hard during the wnit, they would have a great shot at winning it.
  4. hear ya! the powers that be never opened up the indoor places during summer to play. we had to play on a outdoor tennis court that had a hoop on one of the end zones-----it had a chain link net. or, we could play on someones driveway.
  5. pretty interesting: https://www.facebook.com/CHYYONG/videos/397947483917555/
  6. yup, got that right
  7. like this?........http://www.hudl.com/video/3/7094262/58705ee1da5b3d0ae4ecafc2
  8. just hoping she isn't "injury prone"!!! 🤕🚑😉 like bud grant once said, "durability is as important as ability". 😁 in all seriousness, it should be interesting----especially if she picks up the college game quickly! take a little pressure off hannah next season.
  9. not sure we need to speed up the game THAT fast. i really like what i see out of sd's 35 second shot clock.
  10. IF true, i would have to believe you aren't going to hear anything until WNIT is over with (for USD). i think they play at Iowa next. that will be a tough one since it is at Iowa.
  11. tried to post mckewon's tweet, but, kept freezing up on me. anyway, stated that coach williams will be looking to possibly add juco or hs player. will be attending juco nationals (or whatever it's called).
  12. doesn't surprise me, really. i questioned if one might leave, but, i also figured if coach williams wanted everyone to return, they would. it is good news.
  13. i'll go with UConn, Washington, Florida St, and as much as it pains me........................Texas.
  14. http://www.news-gazette.com/news/local/2017-03-14/ui-womens-basketball-whos-next.html albeit, the columnists list-----------pretty interesting group. would be surprised if any of them----unless they really open the wallet. might see the coach from princeton and/or temple giving it some thought. difficult to say, they just might like where they are.
  15. well, will be interesting to see if there are any defections 😉
  16. i am really surprised. finish 3rd in the big ten; 23rd sagarin/cbn rpi; 46th ncaa rpi; rpi better than some teams that got in. guess the 1-4 finish really hurt. 0-4 top 25 and 4-7 against top 50 still, i thought they would make it.
  17. the fans that appeared to care.
  18. surprised a bit. some good freshman there. not sure what was coming in... it did sound like many fans wanted a change.
  19. i wasn't aware there were so few states that use a high school shot clock. "The National Federation of State High School Associations rulebook does not allow use of a shot clock at the high school level, but each state association can decide on using one. Eight states -- California, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Dakota and Washington -- use a shot clock at the high school level. However, doing so means those states forfeit a seat on the basketball rules committee with the NFHS."
  20. good question. maybe a little more digging. hard to believe nebraska hasn't been able to figure a way-----assuming that is what they want to do.
  21. nice find Row6Seat10. nice shooting technique----squares off. appears to have very good court vision. think she could be a very nice get. hope she takes into consideration coach williams was on her early! 😉
  22. came across this 2014 article from the cleveland paper on the cost breakdown (general) for adding a shot clock.http://highschoolsports.cleveland.com/news/article/-1142208583492826767/shot-clocks-and-their-expenses-broken-down-basketball-by-the-numbers/
  23. i read where Minnetonka, Mn high school (K. Mershon) defeated Edina to put themselves in the state tournament. Minnetonka (15-12) will face #1 Hopkins (29-0) in the first round next tuesday. sounds like it was more of a defensive game, final was 45-40 i believe. think Mershon ended up with 9 points.
  24. found out a little more info on 7th and 8th grade participation. as far as the athletic association, i was told it has always been allowed----although, certain schools may regulate it differently. when i think about it, it is more prevalent in wrestling, gymnastics, and i had mentioned track in previous post. i remember jill young, who played at sdsu, playing as an 8th grader for mitchell christian, but, i forgot she also played as a 7th grader. i found out there was a mitchell, sd running back that played as an 8th grader. that was quite some time back though. 90's, i believe? i just think it is pretty rare when you are talking about the sport of football.
  25. someone with more knowledge could correct me with this statement, but, i thought as long as 7th or 8th grader meet the scholastic requirements, they could participate on a varsity level in sd. i just don't remember seeing any 7th grader, off hand. it may have happened on the girls side, but, just can't think of any boy playing as a 7th grader. now, 8th grade participation is more prevalent in the girls basketball game than the boys. with the smaller schools, sometimes it is out of necessity and sometimes they are just at a different level. i am sure coaches are very aware that can be a tricky situation for the obvious reasons. anyway, yankton has an eighth grader on their boys squad--------read an article not long ago comparing him to the next mike miller. have no idea, haven't seen him or yankton play. btw, speaking mostly of basketball. track/cc may be another story. wouldn't surprise me if you see some 7th graders participate.
