The most meaningful stat is wins and losses. Oklahoma is now 5-14 (1-7, Big-12). However, four of the next 6 games are at Home
  1. Sat, Feb. 2: Texas .. 3 p.m.
  2. Wed, Feb. 6: @ OSU .. 8 p.m.
  3. Sun, Feb. 10: Kansas State .. 2 p.m.
  4. Wed, Feb. 13: Kansas .. 7 p.m.
  5. Sat, Feb. 16: @ Baylor .. 7 p.m.
  6. Wed, Feb. 20: Iowa State .. 10:30 a.m.

With the home games coming up, will the OU women rally and get at least 3 wins in this stretch?

1. Is it possible / Is this roster capable of getting 3 wins here?
2. Will they do it?

I'd say it is almost impossible for them to win 3 of these.

First of all, they have 2 away games, something OU has not been able to win very often even with more successful teams. Too many away games is what got us started off on a bad foot the past 3 years.

Second, these teams are between a bit better to massively better than our team this year.

Third these teams are all taller than us.

Fourth, these teams are all faster than us.

Fifth, these teams are all more athletic than we are.

And finally, these teams all have coaches who have evolved on the nature of the current era of WBB. That is. they don't have a preconceived idea about the "look" the team must have on the floor, and so are more open minded about which players should be on the court at the same time.

Third: yes, they are taller than us
Fourth: no, they are not faster
Fifth: no, we are probably more athletic than all except Baylor and Texas

They have experience, players who have developed in a system mostly, which enables those who are new to blend in. We don't. We might weli beat Texas, and lose to Kansas at home. We have no idea what we will get with this group. We probably were the better team last night for 30 of the forty minutes. We were horrible in ten. Green allows them to score in bunches before we adjust.

I think Sherri has a vision of what the future will be, largely a team without Keilani Browns. There just aren't that many. Who else has one? Baylor has two, one by absolute luck of birth. From now on, there probably won't be the huge pickups like that. Texas may be more like what you can get, or UConn, or Notre Dame. Madi and Liz may be the model of the next interior if they can get anyone of size to be in the middle, Chloe? We triend to get the bigger guards, Whitney and Maddie. Both lost two years to injury and were never the same after their freshman years. Might be that Madi and Liz operate up front with someone like Chloe or Nydia while we rotate Ana, Shaina, Taylor, Gabby, and Tatum. That might be the best group in the conference in 2020-2021.

Didn't realize humor was one of your skill sets. But despite your attempt to do such I was not amused by your attempt, but I did chuckle for a different reason.

other than Third I disagree with fourth and fifth
And I don't think SC has any idea on how to fix this cluster she brought upon herself

We have some slow players but Ana, Pellington, Tatum, Maddi and Jessi are not slow and are pretty athletic. Tatum probably the slowest of the group. Lampkin looks pretty athletic but has a way to go to develop sufficient skills.

Robertson is not fast but has as much basketball IQ as any freshman we have had.

I think we have two major problems.

1) Maddie is not typical of the inside player of the future. Plenty of tall players around. Not Kelani Brown tall but tall. One of Oregon's best players is a 6-4 wing and her sister who will debut next year is 6-5. Now I see a 6-1 height for Simpson. Can't compete with both an under sized 4 and 5.

2) I believe our half court offense is not as effective as that of the better teams. We do not get near as many open shots and this leads to a lot of forced shots, turnovers and shots well behind the arc. We have had a fair number of players who are supposed to be great 3 point shooters who have had a hard time getting open shots. We have had few that had a good mid range shot. DRob an exception.

With the possible exception of DRob and probably Stacy Dales we have never had a guard or wing who was great at the drive and dish. Maddie Manning did on occasion but a lot of turnovers too. We have had some pretty good centers but I don't remember many that were good at finding the open player when doubled or triple teamed. We get a lot of blocked shots (8 in two games in a row lately), many of them on forced shots and that probably leads to players hearing footsteps when they miss an open layup.

We are pretty good in the open court and on fast breaks but we have to get a lot more rebounds to feed a fast break. Also our opponents seem to play to stop our fast break. We probably get more on turnovers than on defensive rebounds.

If Bloom doesn't contribute big next year we have the same problems. We now have four outside players who I believe can play and adding Gregory will give us five short of someone transfering out. One or more of those five will probably not get the playing time they want.
