Kalenta article in OWH


Recommended Posts

Nice article in OWH this morning about Kalenta.


Her mother played on USSR team, and her father is a coach. Has a brother 6-8  that also played.


She had a chance to play professionally in Europe, but instead wanted to get her pharmacy degree, and going to the US to college was the way she could accomplish it.


Yori had some good stuff to say.

Kalenta is the player I am most interested in seeing how well she plays.  If she can average at least 15 points and 7 rebounds per game and have a decent field goal percentage, I believe we will be on our way to an outstanding season.  To win the Big 10 conference championship, we will need someone to step up and fill the void left by Hoppers graduation and I am hoping she is the one to do it.

Kalenta may be the one I'm really interested to see play, in the sense that she may be able to contribute right away......particularly inside.  She just has more background and experience, ....beyond high school... than any of the new players.


I'm certain there will be other "newbies" that will see playing time fairly soon too, but Kalenta may have a step or so ahead in terms of getting with the program.


We should easily have more 4 & 5  bench than last year.  Just a stronger bench than we've had for a while...overall.
