Hmmmm...I'd have to disagree with the part about SC "USED to be really good"...if you're referring to coaching. Fundraising, yes and that wasn't too hard when you lucked up on top 5 players. She has never been able to strategically adjust, make wise choices about match ups or sensible rotation. Or recruit.

You see "wild layups" from frustration, lack of skill/development, inability to adjust (because the coach does not know how to implement adjustments) and from players who are really not Big XII/major Div. I players, not to mention there are no match ups for the size they face in the post.

Now they don't want to come and this is what you get... It takes more than scoring to win an NC. Most of it is attitude, passion and desire. Either you have "it" or you don't. OU needed more players with "it" to get a NC. OU does not currently have one player with "it". But whatever...the point is that with those 20 point games ALlunusa was providing, she is not a SDales or CParis caliber player. Your boy Syb was hyping her up versus Dales and Paris which is asinine. 20+ a game or not...and we saw "or not" today.

And if you don't like my opinions...you might want to "move on".
Sure sBaylor.

Just play like you have forgotten your posts in the past. Of course that could be true if you are having Alzheimer issues in your old age.

And you think Ana scoring 19 points is a massive difference from scoring 20? You need to go back to 1st grade and learn your integer values.

Apparently your reading comprehension is also suspect since Syb never said or suggested Ana was already better than Stacy or Courtney. She did, however, point out that her streak of 20+ point games was something even those two stars never accomplished.

Really? That's funny. You complain about refs like that was a game against two YMCA Little League teams. It's a big girls game...you'll get slapped, pushed...it's physical. Some calls they get, others they don't. You have to adjust to the way the refs are calling the game. They were pretty much letting them play.

I'll leave it at you are funny! LOL! Did you lick out your tongue at my post and stomp around in a tantrum? The only silly thing you left out was typing "na na na na na na"! LOL

And again...where is the team in the conference this year? Forget national rankings.

I can assure you that I am as disappointed as anyone about how the season has gone. The shocking thing is we are not the worst team in the league. We will finish either 7th or 8th, guaranteeing at least two teams below us. Think about that. 5th and 6th are the mid-points of the conference and we will finish just a bit out of that. Just outside the middle of the league! Think about what that says about the Big-12.

But I also was one of the few who was not foolish enough to be thinking that this class of Freshmen was going to be some salvation for OU WBB like so many of you were. Next year's class is highly unlikely to turn us completely around either.

All of us need to understand that the players we watched today are not really Freshmen anymore. They are playing the last couple of games of the year. What you saw today is similar to what you will see from most of them next year.

Ana is by far the best player on this team. Jessi has really improved as the season has progressed. Most of the others have slid backwards or been at standstill. Today's performance was almost identical with the first 10 conference games. I have no idea how Madi can still be missing chip shot 8 to 10 foot open jumpers time after time.

We are in trouble until we start recruiting athletic girls along with girls with greater height. We are dumb as dirt to not be recruiting our hearts out to land a certain tall young lady at Edmond Memorial. But we seem to have our eyes on short, slow girls instead. We do not need a single additional player like that. Not one!

Well, you know our point system for recruiting. Basketball isnít the only important thing, remember.

OH, I don't think your suggestion is the only thing driving our recruiting. SC wants a team of players who look like she did in college - or at least 3 or so players on the floor all the time like that.

Even though she was not even close to the best player on her teams, according to those who saw her back then - in the olden days.

It's pretty pathetic that Tennessee is most likely going to fire their coach because of their horrible seasoning and SC gets to stay here....even though our team is most definitely worse. Reflection of the two programs and expectations. Expectations at OU have slowly gone down over the years as our teams have gotten worse I suppose. AKA only a select few probably care, namely us posting on this board. :-(
Depends upon who wins in Lubbock. Win and we will tie OSU for 7th with whomever has the tie breaker playing Kansas and the other team playing Tech. Tech wins and we play again in the Big 12 tourney.

Madi is missing 8-10' jumpers because she cannot shoot. You never see the same stroke from her twice in a row. Her shots are generally are all clunkers that declare that they should not have been shot. Madi has effort and athleticism but a basketball player she is not IMHO. No basketball IQ.

Athletic big girls is not what we need to be recruiting. Athletic big basketball players are what we need. EJ was an athletic big girl and they are typically nothing more than projects. Occasionally you have a hit like we did with Pierre-Louis after a year or two of development but mostly we get whiffs when it comes to producers. But high quality basketball players should be priority #1.

Actually it is quite a bit more complicated than that.

First, if OSU wins tomorrow, we end up 8th, no matter what we do.

If we win and OSU loses, we could end up in 7th, but it depends on a fairly complicated tiebreaker which is likely to even depend on the Texas - TCU game.

Technically you are correct but I considered OSU's chances of beating KSU nil and not worth mentioning. Still do. But for certain I have been wrong before.

I agree 100%!!!
I don't know if we got that in Bloom either. I truly believe Scott is probably just 6 ft tall and that's not going to do us a whole lot of good....

I can only go by the shoot around that takes place about an hour prior to the game. In those shoot arounds Bloom has a very good stroke and accuracy out to 17'. She takes most of her shots from the wing or elbow. We will still have to wait to see if she can shoot in game conditions.

Let'snot get confused. We need height and athletic girls (based on some of the posts above, some of you seem confused and think we can play guys).

We have 3 good shooters (Ana, Taylor, & Jessi). Now we need tall, athletic inside play.

Here's our recap...

Quote:
NORMAN — A strong first half for the Oklahoma women’s basketball team was done in by a poor second half Saturday in a 76-63 loss to TCU.

The Sooners (8-20, 4-13 Big 12) led 21-13 after one quarter and 40-34 at halftime, but the Horned Frogs (20-8, 10-7) took control after the break.

TCU pulled even by the 7:43 mark of the third quarter, and took the lead for good less than two minutes later. The Sooners’ deficit was five points heading into the fourth quarter and TCU eventually won going away.

Taylor Robertson scored 21 points for OU, hitting six 3-pointers. Ana Llanusa added 19 points and Jessi Murcer 11 for the Sooners.

EJ was tall, athletic and gave effort we she what she provided in 4 years. We need tall athletic basketball players not just lengthy jocks.
