Considering her offensive inefficiency and the plethora of highly rated guards coming in, it was probably a good idea.
WOW is right! That is quite surprising. She would have a year of experience in JPMs system.
Things that make you go hmmmmm.....
She was definitely offered and most thought it was a foregone conclusion that she would matriculate at UConn.There was a reason she was not offered or pursued by Geno. Suffice to say she won't end up here. Having said that, I think she's a solid player and could see her thriving no matter where she ends up. Not sure what happened at Duke - she was a starter and getting the PT she and her father wanted. AT least it seemed that way...
Really? We'll take her.
EDIT: she has already been removed from the Duke online roster
I originally thought Geno and CD backed off of her, but I went back and checked, and she did have an offer from UCONN. I'm thinking, though, maybe UCONN cooled off on her once Sadie verbaled? I realize they play different positions, but I thought leading up to her Duke verbal we had sort of moved on? Maybe I'm wrong tho. I couldn't find much on it in our past threads - maybe someone with a better memory can say...We wouldn't have room for her, anyway. She'd be as frustrated as Sadie with the lack of playing time.
Well you think different (better) coaching might help her with that? I would have loved to have her here, but I wouldn't trade any of the scholarship players for her.I'm not a fan. She has athletic talent but is a chucker and a poor one at that. With Salvadores, Lambert, and Suggs coming next year, I think Calhoun would've eventually gotten buried.

If Sierra wasn't happy at Duke where she was starting, its unlikely she would consider UConn where most likely she doesn't start when eligible. I'm not sure Geno would even consider Sierra, even though she's a talented player. She probably would be a great fit at St Johns or Seton Hall if she was interested.
Sounds sarcastic... fits.If I recall correctly, the day Calhoun committed to Duke, Geno said something like, "It's great to wake up to good news," without making it clear exactly what the good news was.
Just recently, I think in a piece on Butler, Geno confirmed that his taking a transfer is pretty much against his philosophy and, obviously, this is not a case for making an exception.
