    GENO MOVES AHEAD OF HATCHELL!!
    3RD PLACE ALL TIME!

    1. Summitt . 1098
    2. Tara .. .. 980 + 32 =1012 (nxt: 3/31 SC/FSU)
    3. Geno .. .. 955 + 36 = 991 (nxt: 3/31 Miss St)
    4. Hatchell . 975 + 15 = 990 (season complete)
    5. Stevens .. 957 + 26 = 983 (season complete)
    6. Stringer . 971 + 06 = 977 (season complete)
    7. Conradt .. 900
    8. Foster ... 865 + 21 = 886 (season complete)

    Earliest these could happen:
    • GA wins 1000th -- Dec 2017 (My guess: Dec 2017)
    • Hatchell @1000 -- Dec 2017 (My guess: Dec 2017)
    • Stevens @ 1000 -- Jan 2018 (My guess: Jan 2018)
    • Stringer @1000 -- Feb 2018 (My guess: Dec 2018)
    • TaraV ties PHS -- 2019-20 season

    If someone told you before the season started that UConn would be 36-0 heading into the Final 4, you probably would've thought Geno would've gained more than 4 games on Tara.

    Stanford has not only had a great year, but it's all those postseason wins (7 so far this year, same as Geno) that are really protecting Tara's lead.

    Stanford adds an excellent recruiting class:

    Kiana Williams HG #8

    Maya Dodson HG #12

    Estella Moschkau HG #44

    Alyssa Jerome Unranked

    Williams and Dodson will play in both the McDonald's AA game and the Jordan brand game.

    I saw Dodson in the dunk contest today. She was doing the Candace Parker-esque barely pushing it over the rim, but a 6-3 player that can get up to the rim is an intriguing prospect.

    They had 3 in the McD's game last year (Carrington, Fingall and Wilson).

    Geno and his team need to play more regular season games. This year and last year the UConn women played 29 regular season games while Stanford played 30 games in each of those years. So in each of those years Tara started off with an extra game in her pocket to work with. I realize the team was a little lite on first-line players the past couple of years; so that may have been a reason for dropping back a game or two( note - the team played 31 regular season games in 2013-24 on the way to a 40-0 season).

    We certainly do not have a weak bench problem this year. On other threads people are verbally wringing their hands over the upcoming lack of playing minutes. An extra game would add 200 total playing minutes to the season. I would guess there will be two or three players this year who will not see a total of 200 game minutes all season.

    The Wichita State addition may have moved us from 29 to 30(or preferably from 30 to 31).
    Does anyone know when the complete schedule will be out?

    I can't imagine that the "extra workload" of an extra game is a factor. Everyone associated with the team seems to agree that practices are more demanding than games. And an extra game would mean an off day or very lite practise the day before.

    So...More games please!

    You can only play 29 games EXCEPT for certain tournament exceptions. Generally, a 3 game tournament only counts as "2" games, so you play 30 games that year. The pre-season WNIT only counts for 2 games, so for the winner and runner-up you get 2 extra games. Someone (I forget who) last year actually played in 2 tournaments that each gave them an actual game. And then there is an extra game awarded for playing Hawai'i in Hawai'i I believe. There are restrictions that prevent you from playing in the same tourney every year.

    So, UConn played 29 games because they didn't participate in any tourneys. One of the other years that you reference they played in the Gulf Coast Showcase, another year they were in the Hall of Fame tourney, etc.

    It is very unlikely that any participation in tourneys is driven by bench strength, etc. It is, in fact, most likely driven by financial considerations and scheduling issues (i.e. timing and strength of opponents). For UConn, part of the problem is that their games at many of these tourneys would most likely not be on broadcast TV - although of course available on streaming - and that may also be a factor.

    As I read your post, It dawned on me that in spite of all the transfers that are being made over the last several years, we seldom hear of players transferring from Stanford to go to other programs. I know that Lily Thompson transfered last year to go to Notre Dame. She has one year of eligibility left. Without looking it up, who was the last Cardinal player to leave the program before Thompson? Many of the major programs lose players, UConn not withstanding. They've loss their share in past years. Once Tara gets a recruit on campus, they usually stay all 4 years.

    It was great to see UConn switched from playing Ohio State to Stanford in Columbus. This gives Geno an opportunity to definitely gain a win on Tara, since a victory would not only give him a win but also deny her one win for her season.

    Last season Geno gained four wins on Tara(36-1 season vs her 32-6) even as Stanford played an extra game over UConn. In the 2015-16 season Geno gained a whopping eleven wins(38-0 vs 27-8) on Tara! At that combined rate it will take him three or four years to catch her. Every head to head encounter gives him more control over that time frame.

    Jaime Carey left Stanford because of concussions and missed ayear or more. Then transferred to Texas and she was their point guard. Taurasi and Co. beat them in FF in 2003 71-69.

    She did leave, but only because she was not cleared to play by Stanford medical. So her career there was over.
