  1. We definitely could use a win today. I'll be in attendance so it'd be nice to see the girls get the W! Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  2. Man our defense is pretty bad. On-ball defense allows straight drives to the basket; and help-side is slow to rotate. We also give up a ton of 3's (to all teams) because they're not disciplined enough to see ball and the girl they're guarding. It's very frustrating to watch. We're not a consistent high scoring team so we've got to play harder, smarter and tougher on defense, bc it would create a lot more transition offense. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  3. I agree that there seems to be a lack of caring and/or wanting to win (not bad enough at least). The defensive intensity isn't there; turnovers galore; we're getting out-hustled on all loose and 50/50 balls; rebounding is awful - we're giving up way too many second chance points and not giving ourselves the same opportunities. There just seems to be a lack of energy and intensity as a whole out there. Honestly, I'm really disappointed in our upper clsssmen's play thus far. Nicea, Maddie and Hannah should be the examples, but currently the freshman are the ones coming into the game with some hunger. It's still really early in the season, but I'd really like to see the girls step it up... A LOT!! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
  4. Lol @Artifacts [emoji28] I'm hoping so. We talked a lot on her being more confident and aggressive this season, so we'll see! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
  5. Yup sounds about right to me [emoji846] Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
  6. I'm still around! [emoji4] Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
  7. That was the worst call I've ever seen! But on the other hand Nicea has got to know not to try to block that shot. She's got to just put her hands up and contest it; and if it goes in you just tip your cap. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
  8. I'll be the first to say it: Nicea has got to shoot the ball!! Doesn't even look at the basket half the time. She's way too athletic not be aggressive on offense. It allows the defense to stand and just pick off her passes. Even if the shot doesn't go in it makes the defense have to at least respect you. I love how Maddie has become that kind of player this year. She may not be the best shooter, but her aggression makes her a tough player! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
  9. Having played college and semi-pro ball, I totally agree Huskerfrank. But also it's good to keep im mind that these early non-conference games are where you can kind of tinker with your lineups, subs, etc. Not that coach Amy isn't trying to win; but when you head into the conference schedule coaches usually tend to have their primary lineup rotations figured. It usually stays around 8-9 players maybe 10 weigh certain matchups, score, etc. But I do agree with playing too many players makes it harder to get a rhythm.

  10. I'm thinking the starting lineup is going to be Bria, Hannah, Nicea, Maddie, Darrien. Just my guess though. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
  11. I haven't checked messages in awhile, but welcome "Proudparent"! Nicea has told me so many good things about Bria! She's excited to play with her this year!! And hello everybody else in here!! [emoji4] Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
  12. I appreciate everybody in this forum, and really love the support you all have for the girls. Of course I always watch what I say bc I do realize that potentially Nicea would be the one who'd have to answer for it. But I do enjoy sharing alot of the information, etc that you guys normally don't get to hear about. Again thank you! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
  13. I haven't checked messages in a free days so I missed this one! But 12dozen I can probably answer a few of your questions seeing as Nicea just went back to Lincoln on Tuesday after being home for 2 weeks. Like Proudparent said, the girls were due back yesterday. I know Nicea is helping with bball camp that starts today thru the weekend. And is also taking a summer class. She's excited bc she just moved into her campus apartment - which is very nice btw! She said all the girls actually get along really well. She tends to hangout (more) with Grace, Maddie & Hannah. Though they're not required to play, Nicea said alot of they play against each other almost daily at Hendricks or they team up and run the court over at the rec center lol ... She said the 2 transfer girls, Bria and Janay are very good. Bria is very quick and gets to basket and passes really well; and Janay is a great shooter. Son for anyone upset over RCJ transferring need not worry lol.. relationships with coaches seem to be good. The girls are still required to meet with their assigned coach once a week to talk about bball, classes, concerns, life, etc. Personally I hope they up their conditioning and move towards being an uptempo type of team. Because we're obviously going to be guard- heavy. Hope this helps a little bit! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
  14. Lol. Just bad freshman habits that I hope she grows out of. She has a habit of wanting to block everyone's shot bc in high school she spiked 5 shots a game. Definitely a different caliber of girls in the B1G lol. She's gotta learn to stay on the floor and just get her hands up. Sometimes a contested shot is just as good as a block..but I'll definitely remind her of that, Tony! 🖒🖒
  15. Great game, and such a great win for the girls!! I know I'm late, but I always follow the comments. All the different input is great; no matter if it's positive or critical of the girls...Nicea had zero's in the last 2 games. She cut her hand in practice before the Michigan game and had to get 6 stitches. So she's been playing with her 2 fingers taped together - which obviously she hasn't figured out how to make a shot with lol (no excuses!). But after that Michigan debacle she said she wanted to show that she can still put her stamp on the game by playing tough defense...anyhoo proud of the girls bc even if we lose all I wanted to see was effort. I'm glad they're finally showing they want to win! Illinois is definitely beatable!!
