Default Aspen Williston

https://soonersports.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=2304

I see that she is listed as a sophomore. I would have thought that only playing seven games would have enabled her to be redshirted where she would still be a freshman.

We saw so little of her last year that I don't really know what she can do. I do know that she had been committed to OSU until we signed her, and TCU had recruited her. Her size and strength must have been considered sufficient. But, I hadn't even seen any tapes of her against any kind of decent competition.

I saw just enough of her to see that she is not that easily pushed around. Seems strong. I don't know about her athletic ability. She seemed to be able to run the floor. Does she have any basketball skills.

Since she is kind of what we were lacking last year, I would like to see her develop into at least a good defender and rebounder. She has the strength. Can she learn?

I hope that she has been able to recover enough to work out and practice, hopefully learning more than she would have known coming in from Broken Bow. She could be a very pleasant surprise if she could play.

I saw her in the state tournament her Senior year. She was raw, the girl can shoot the ball, has great form, her weakness is rebounding. Needs to learn to anticipate and solid blocking out. She has the body, just needs some good coaching and I think she could be a decent defender and mid-range shooter, it depends on how hard she wants to work.

That is more encouraging than I had suspected.

I can confirm in the early shoot arounds about an hour before the game that she had excellent mid-range accuracy with a decent stroke. I don't recall seeing her shoot in a game but then she was only 2-4 from the field for the season.
