    Deja Vu all over again

    Love this post. Going to use it from time-to-time when this type of topic comes up again.

    ESPN's latest WNBA Mock Draft has Evina going #12

    I think everything comes down to Evina's injury and if a team thinks she can be healthy enough. She has played 4 positions on the number 1 ranked team. She has two solid offensive fundamental skills. She's just not a 3pt shooter. If her knee can hold up - she may not have to be.

    Has a Late Season Transformation Already Happened?

    Very important and underrated part of the game. Our 3 "bigs" can't shoot them. You can't build much of an inside attack offensive plan around them against good quality teams because of it.

    Paige as NPOY

    I agree with you. What she did vs SC wasn't at another level? Her efficiency vs Arkansas in which her TS% wasn't at another level? Her entire season --her efficiency for a guard isn't at another level? And her "one game" which seems to be downplayed by some is much bigger than any "other...

    Can't Sleep on Creighton

    A benchmark? What's the point of a 20 game benchmark when it comes to UCONN? You know UCONN has been to many consecutive final fours? What does 19 or 20 wins have to with affecting UCONN? You could call out 25 game winning teams sand it still wouldn't mean anything, right? And you replied to...

    Post AAC and USF

    Okay to play them but it wasn't a rivalry.

    Can't Sleep on Creighton

    So last year they were 19-10 and yet you are making a big deal that they didn't win 20? That's what you want to get with a back-and-forth disagreement on with Nan - that Creighton only won 19 instead of 20 games? What next if they go 20-10 then we can move the bar and say they never won 21? I...

    Xavier Postgame Thread

    If this how you think okay - I hope you're right - if you want to hold this game as a barometer. :)I tried explaining Mir is a low post player. And I tried to explain guard play- instead with one of your comments - you are mentioning how Mir outscored Nika (However, (Nika does have to learn to...

    Xavier Postgame Thread

    Why do you doubt it? :) If that last minute or two isn't important then why not have them goof-off in those last couple of minutes? Because if it's not instrumental in Nika's development then why would it be instrumental in anyone else's development too? You're a fan and can declare a game...

    Mir? Any idea why so little playing time?

    Because Mir scores nearly all her baskets inside. When you compared Nika to Mir - were you thinking Mir is scoring mostly outside of 5-6 feet? The problem for Mir is that she is small for a low post player and most of her baskets come form the inside 5-6 feet. She's a small player who plays...

    Mir? Any idea why so little playing time?

    Yes. But that challenge you reference also includes his superstars. And history has shown he gives his superstars big minutes. There's a reason. Teams need to develop a certain cohesiveness and that usually starts with your superstars. So in order to accomplish the goal to win championships he...

    Reg season - blowouts- definitely more minutes dispersed.

    Mir? Any idea why so little playing time?

    We heard the same thing at the end of last year/ the start of this year. Next year they could become among the best ever. As a result more minutes could be spread around due to blowouts but if Azzi is like Paige next year -- those two aren't coming out in big games other than a minute or 2...

    Mir? Any idea why so little playing time?

    :) :) :) You want me to answer next year's lineup in terms of minute distribution - and this year isn't even over yet? How am I supposed to do that when UCON is so young and still so many questions for this year? :) :):) If you want me to wild guess I need 8 parameter questions answered than so...
