maybe she's in on some of these girls still? I know Mack (1st team) signed with Oklahoma State.
Might I mention Maria Villarroel?

Rosalind Ross is the only big difference maker Coale has brought in from the JUCO ranks. Maria would be next. Those were 15 years or so ago. Nobody in recent history. About par for HCSC.

this is my point exactly.

There's always an exception of course, but 1 or 2 in her 20+ years isn't a very good record.

Syb, when you are reaching that far back to try to justify what was a silly post to begin with, you just damage your own comments and positions. One instance? All you could find is Maria???

Iím sure over the course of time that there have been scores of juco players who moved up to D-1 and contributed immensely to their teams. Itís stupid and silly to argue otherwise.

Either provide all of these great JCs and what they have done or drop it.

Why donít you drop it? Your demand is ridiculous, just as your entire argument is.

Not a big list, but still a list... I noticed that Kam didnít make any JC teams, not a big deal, but when you add that to the list of JC players who have come to OU and it could be cause for worry...

I was just about to mention Danielle Adams is the most recent one that comes to mind. Also, WV had N. Davenport the past two seasons that made the all conference team. Arkansas had Tolefree. These are just three big ones that come to mind from my limited knowledge of other teams. My point was that the JC players SC have brought in have, for the most part, been non contributors. Syb will always argue anything against SC, that's a given. I hope i'm wrong about this girl we just brought in, but my point is with SC's track record I won't be getting my hopes up!

She may be a solid, steady player who can improve this team's play, but The Sooners need bigger players, as when OU plays teams like Baylor, for instance, they are being shoved out of the gym. Maybe a big player will be the next commitment.

This kind of makes the point. Doesn't it? You are going back to the pre-Big Twelve years to pick up Swoopes. How often does that happen any more?

If anything, a player is more likely to go from Nebraska to Notre Dame in a controversial move (immediate eligibility wasn't a foregone conclusion) or LSU to Baylor situation after the Duke to Baylor scoring guard transferred out again. Strange how these top transfers always seem to be pre-arranged. Now, we even see Westbrook to UConn, which is a bit disappointing. Eroding into men's basketball. But, you don't really see much in the way of JC.

I was curious when I saw the Odessa team announced. How do you get from South Carolina to Odessa? But, then, we saw others from Canada and Brazil---to Odessa? Does he have the world's best JC recruiting budget? Are these being recruited and stashed until they can qualify? But, did you really see a big player in the game that would have helped OU? I notice that one of the Odessa players signed with Memphis, and it says she was ranked as the #8 JC player in the nation??? Really? Did you see a #8 quality player on Lemon's team?

I strongly suspect that we may get some "help" from a JC player or transfer, but not a saving grace. You build, for the most part.

I disagree Syb has some basic basketball knowledge and is very observant of what occurs on the court. He just lets his ego get in the way and chooses to see only what he wants to see and disregards everything else.

Appears that the whole JUCO thing has changed since the days of Swoops. Seems that many more players qualify academically for Div I and don't have to go through JUCO.

Yep. But, I am curious as to how all those girls got to Odessa.

Spock...I'm guessing you mean he knows a ball is involved, women play and the goal is to put a bouncy, orange, round thing through a hoop that's about 10 ft. off the ground.

Oh, and there are teams and they wear different color uniforms.

Beyond that....

Oliver, I wonder if I am alone in thinking that we would all be better off by forgoing ad hominem comments on other posters.

So, SO LONG. I know none of you will grieve and neither will I. You guys can hang around here and kiss Syb's fanny all you want to. He's a miserable, arrogant know-it-all who is condescending and rude and I'm rude back because of it.

I looked a bit further into this. Julian McDonald, a F from Toronto, Canada, who, according to Raoul, Memphis is saying was the #8 JC recruit in the nation was on the Odessa team with Lemon. I was looking at taller players to see if there was anyone that Lemon might want to attract to OU. I barely noticed McDonald. She averaged 9.6 PT, 7.2 rebounds per game for Odessa.
