    I think the announcer stopped at Starbucks for a triple espresso before the game. :D

    Though Mikayla has described herself as a "shooting guard", I see her as the principal backup point guard to CD3 next year.

    Mikayla can be a backup point guard and still be a scorer like Sue Bird!

    Watching Mikayla , I think those 7 steals and her defensive quickness is what is going to get her on the floor fastest when she comes to UCONN.

    Yea, but what number will she wear & how tall is she anyway? 23 is taken and she will needs to ditch her A'Ja Wilson rolled shorts wearing ways. :D
    And who is she going to take minutes away from on this team? :D:D

    Don't know how they go about selecting numbers at UConn..do the coaches say "hmmmmm she looks like a 21 to me" or do the players put in a request...is there a hierarchy as to whom get first dibs? I know how they do it at my daughters school.....you get what you get and you don't get upset..

    as to the minutes question...from what I have seen from Ms. Walker, she can play either guard spot or small forward with ease so I guess she could replace Nurse, Dangerfield, KLS and perhaps Gabby depending on the size of the opposing lineup.......if she takes 5 minutes a game from three or four of them that should allow them to rest and allow her to do some damage...

    players get to request numbers, and if it belonged to a legend before they have to ask permission of that player to wear the number. Molly had to ask Sue if she could wear #10. I don't think permission has ever been denied, but it is a way to start teaching the tradition they are becoming a part of.

    ...what number will she wear? Zero. The number of defenders who can stop her.

    ...how tall is she anyway? Tall enough.

    ...she will need to ditch her A'Ja Wilson rolled shorts wearing ways. Looks good enough on A'Ja, right?

    ...And who is she going to take minutes away from on this team? Why does it matter if everyone is all in for the good of the team?

    Yeah, I know. A really informative post by me. Sorry. Better next time.

    She seems to be an athletic disruptor. Reminds me a bit of a current disruptor.

    Kind of seeing a McCoughtry/Augustus hyrid. I think Geno would love to coach someone like that.

    Had not thought about Angel or Simone, but I could definitely see that. I was more thinking in the mold of Candice Wiggins.

    And they seem to have really enjoyed working with Geno on the national teams.

    I'm as high as anyone on next years recruits, but they are not the storm troopers arriving to save the day. They will come in and think: I should have worked out harder for the last 6 months. What just happened? What did Shea say to do next? What just happened? I have to do what now? Mommy!
