If he is going to use a seven rotation for big games (which is understandable), then he needs to give either Morgan Tuck or Kia Nurse (or both) some time at the three. At a crucial juncture late in the game, Orrange just blew by Kaleena on a switch, which might not have happened if she had had a few minutes rest during each half. As the season develops, one of the Freshmen may earn his trust for that role; after all, they will get plenty of playing time during the conference season.
I am thinking that maybe Nurse....would Tuck be quick enough?
Bad referees anticipate fouls. That happened several times last night and Doris Burke to her credit pointed it out.Against Stanford, absolutely. The foul issue, though, prevented him from doing that. By the way, has anyone brought up the issue that Kia Nurse is used to playing under international rules, which allows more contact? Also, two of her fouls were really bad calls, including the charge when the replay clearly showed that the defenders feet were in the circle. That was a huge turning point in the game.
