Minus Well get this started.
I think Daneesha Provo of Utah played the same number of games as Tudor last year (13), so maybe the difference was that Provo also had a short season as a freshman at Clemson before transferring?Bummer about Tudor. The NCAA has been getting generous about granting another year of eligibility if you transferred mid season at some point in your career. But since Tudor has stayed at the same school, no go.
I couldn't help but think the same. I hope she's able to play a full season this year. But if she's not, and the total is somewhere around 12 or 13 games, I would certainly hope the same criteria gets applied to her. We'll have to wait and see.I think Daneesha Provo of Utah played the same number of games as Tudor last year (13), so maybe the difference was that Provo also had a short season as a freshman at Clemson before transferring?
Also, I'm wondering if Tudor might have had better luck with her waiver request if she's waited until after this season to apply for it. Especially if she misses a significant chunk at the start of the season while she finishes rehabbing.
Can she reapply for the MRW after this season in view of "limited competition" for a second consecutive season?
I thought she was a big get for them. USC has been a bit of a dumpster fire in recent years, but she's clearly a very talented player. With better teammates around her, and a better program/atmosphere, it's easy for me to see her being a difference maker.The biggest takeaway for me was the fact that Minyon Moore looked like she had been with the team for a very long time--same speed to the basket and intensity on defense, but also some really terrific passing, and a much improved outside shot ((2/3 from 3, I think). She will make a difference.
That’s the sad part of her not getting to play. She’s in the best shape of her life. Back in June, she posted a story on Instagram detailing how a little over a year ago she made changes in her life. She had stepped onto campus at Texas weighing 190 lbs, quickly gaining weight and playing at 220 as a freshman. As of the end of June, she weighed in at 168 lbs and looks terrific.Speaking of Littleton, I did a double take when I saw her photo on the twitter post:
Wow does she look like a different person. Dropped a ton of weight and looks in great shape.
Hopefully this was tongue in cheek. However if not, then you misunderstood the post. Since at least the end of the 2013-2014 season they have finished in the top ten. Last season they were in a rebuilding mold after losing A Wilson and still finished 13. They are preseason back in the top 10 this year. Having a single rebuilding season doesn’t change the expectation of the program or that they have been consistently in the top 10. If it trends downward then obviously that changes things.South Carolina was not a top 10 team last year.
Two different things there. One is a medical redshirt the other is a transfer waiver request.Bummer about Tudor.
