Any UCONN opponent employing a zone defense next season will face Paige, Azzi, and Caroline, UCONN's basketball version of Whitefeather, Reaper, and the "Michael Jordan of Shooting."

"Who is going to win the 3 point contest?" (camera dude)
...... Me of course! (some player forgetting who is in the house!)
"She is definitely winning. She got it." (finger pointed at Caroline by another player in the know!)

She looks like the consistant 3 point shooter that the Huskies are lacking at the wing. She, Paige, and Azzi will be hard to guard from beyond the arc.
I love her shot of course that coupled with her size is going to make her a tough to defend player. You could have a great defensive effort and still give up 90pts to this team!!

I wouldn't judge Saylor by her performance in half a year coming in as a 17 year old. She gets a FR do-over this season. And yes, she is a good shooter from distance.
If we ever wind up in an end of game situation where we need a three on the last possession, I would have Saylor at the 4, Dorka at the 5, then Carolyn (3), Azzi (2), and Paige at the 1.

Some people have no clue. That statement the poster made was not fair. Once she is fully recovered from her injury, there is a good chance Saylor will be a very effective scorer for UConn, joining Caroline as a freshman.

I hope you are right. We never really have a full understanding of where players are health wise. Examples being Evinas Knee, Paiges ankle, Saylors hip? We’d need to see a very big jump from Saylor, but that could definitely happen over the next few years.

I think Ducharme will be one of those freshman who gets around 10-12 mpg. During her sophomore season, I see her evolving into a similar player to Katie Lou and getting a lot of minutes. Length at the wing position, who can handle the ball, pass, hit from the outside, and drive to the basket. I’m excited to watch her play.

No judgement ..merely an observation.

I have to admit, I wasn't really that excited about Caroline when she first gave her commitment. At the time I think she was ranked #15 by ESPN, than all of a sudden everyone starts singing her praises, saying how improved she was over the summer. Instantly her ranking changed to #5, coinciding with a change of rating firms by ESPN. I'm asking myself, is she really that good? I only saw a couple of her high school games, and those were really not impressive, not specifically her, but the teams as a whole, just hard to watch. The light started to turn on when I witnessed her beating Azzi in the national 3 Pt contest, and Caroline just continued by wiping out the boys champ. Again I was thinking, is she that good? Now I am totally excited, not only winning the SLAM 3 Pt contest, but winning the 1 on 1 event as well. My goodness, I am totally excited about all three new players, knowing full well that they all can make a difference next year. I didn't think I could feel better about next year, can't wait. Just want to say I didn't include Saylor only because she didn't have a senior year to impress, but my hopes are as high as ever that she will step up and take her place as a valuable member of our squad.

Ah, at last, a thread that stays on topic, does not resort to snarks and sniping, and is entirely supportive. See, we can do it! BTW, I coached against Caroline's school's team many years ago.

Don't get your hopes up. That core group is out there just watching and waiting to pounce. All it takes is one and it's off the rails. ;)

No disrespect, I see Caroline as the replacement for CW once CW graduates. That means Caroline is a full year away. That would put Paige, Azzi, and Caroline in the starting back court with Nika first off the bench. Saylor as the extra guard.

Maybe more of a replacement for Evina. Regardless if Paige, Azzi and Carolyn are in together, height wise Azzi is the SG and Carolyn the SF. From that perspective the skill-set Carolyn is most replacing is Anna.

I guess players will take new roles by then. Paige at the point, Azzi at the 2, and Caroline on the wing. Yes, Evina and CW will be gone. Nika will back up Paige and Saylor on the wing. Too far in the future to get too locked in as the transfer rules allow a team to change overnight.

This incoming class is outstanding but they will be cheerleaders more than contributors because of the array of talent ahead of them. Both freshmen wings need to get into the weight room. If they are to play more than just zone busters they will have to rebound and while Edwards is only an inch taller than they in height her shoulders are 5 inches wider. They will have a year to work because there are too many upperclassmen ahead of them at the 3 and Bueckers/Fudd/Mühl will dominate the back court.
But if they do play with Bueckers and Fudd they should get a lot of really good looks from behind the arc, like KLS got her freshman season. There is no defense when teams are tossing in 3's from 8 feet behind the arc . Bueckers Fudd & Ducharme could become the "bomb squad".
