Ready to get it started. I want to see a great bounce back game. And rebounding domination.

That play by Morgan was pretty.

Does it seem like Morgan Hook is on a really short leash?

Is it that, or is Sherri trying to get Maddie some experience? Jasmine and Maddie got more time than Morgan today. I doubt that Sherri thinks that they are better at this point in time? This was a bit of an unusual game. The negative is that Morgan didn't steady us against UCLA.

Nice to get a dominant win, but that was one of the worst women's college teams I've seen.

Ugh. Says something when you're pleased with "only" 16 turnovers. I notice Campbell getting only 13 minutes. Is she in the doghouse or is there an issue? Last year if she wasn't starting she was usually the first off the bench. I know we have new players and the rototion is different but she was at times our savior.

I don't understand why Sharane played as little as she did. I think she should be starting. She may be in Sherri's doghouse, which is the only thing that makes sense to me.

Sharane had a problem with fouls in the first half. Two quick ones and she sat the bench. When she played in control she was fine, just too many mistakes and silly fouls. She will be okay.

Really disappointed second half. The kids played dis-interested in the second half, and that will get you killed. They need to keep their intensity for forty minutes and keep the "boot on the neck" and get that killer instinct. They are going to need it in the islands, and the rest of their non-conference schedule. The Big XII will be tough enough, and these kids don't have that toughness yet.

Really good game from our center position. Nicole was very good when the kids finally started getting her the ball on a regular basis.

Am I the only one thinking Sherri might consider a starting lineup of
Griffin
Hand
Manning
Hook
Ellenberg

McFarland is really struggling and Durrett hasn't yet proven she's ready to start.

Just a thought

I just felt that she seemed like when she was in there she was rushing and seemed to press a little. I hope she's not putting pressure on herself.

She still needs to take better care of the ball. Did you see the short girl tie her up? The ball should never go below her shoulders. She's in love with bringing the ball down and loves putting it on the floor. She can't get away with that against everyone.

You have isolated the problem - the power forward position. Hand is one possible solution, but it's so beneficial to have a 3 point ace on each wing. Campbell is another solution, but at 5'10", she's way undersized.

I would guess that various solutions will be tried during the non-conference season. For those that follow the team, and not just the wins, this will be a very interesting time.

35tt,
Yeah probably creates more problems than it might solve.
Reaching for a solution that does not include Kaylon.

Well, I'm not saying you're wrong - just that this is a work in progress that we can all watch develop.

I don't know whether it would be Maddie, Kornet, or Sharane. Unless Jo recovers, I suspect that it will be one of them. Fortunately, Hand can rebound. I tend to see Maddie out front, primarily because I haven't seen anything that says Jasmine can be a point. Right now, we seem to be waiting for Jo, Portia, and Jasmine to develop a role, and two of these are seniors on whom I had counted for stability.

Each of you knows well I have hoped for and advocated Hand to the 4 since her injury.

With her rebounding, aggressiveness, shooting and smarts, she has always seemed like a perfect 4 to me. She's 6-1 too and size wise she can hold her own.

I could see Sheri moving Maddie to point, if she progresses enough and moves Morgan to the 3 or vice versa.

Kornet may be a year away from being to take the 3. I give Maddie the edge. But if Sheri is thinking Maddie is the ultimate answer at the point...

Well that's just an entirely knew can of worms, but one I like.

35tt,
maybe I'm reaching for Manning because of her length and the fact that Hook at times seems like a more effective 2 guard than PG.

We might not get much out of Jaz. Depending on the injury and the recovery sometimes it takes a year to get back to where you once were. Even then she filled her role. Dunno about Jo. It would be nice for her to revert back to being more inside but so far she seems to be more outside than anything. It seemed today she played a little more inside but the competition wasn't much. I don't know about the new guys yet. They have the size but are they able to play the four? Dunno. Unfortunately

This is where - IDK if it's the recruiting or the girls she goes after/gets. Not sure. I see teams like Baylor and A$M that get 6'2" girls that are tough and they play defense and they get rebounds. Maybe we have those kinds of girls. This is of course from someone that follows the team, not just the wins.

I've also wanted to see Whitney at the 4 since last year but I've given up on the idea that Sherri is going to move her from the 3. It's true that Sharane is not as tall as some other 4s but she is more athletic than most other 4s in our league and is tougher than most 4s in the country. She is a bit like Gant was, undersized but tough as nails. I just think moving players around and trying to play the 4 by committee is not working and not likely to work. If not Sharane, find someone and stick with them for 30+ minutes a game for 3 games and see what happens.
