I would not hand Nelson-Ododa a starting spot. Doesn’t deserve one. Hasn’t played as a post needs to. Is always a minus in every big game. The only thing we can count on from Olivia is that she will blow layups.If she comes back she will have her starting spot. As will CW and ONO. Starting five is essentially the same next year. Maybe Geno plays around with Nika's spot a bit, but don't expect big changes seven months from now.
Yeah, we get it. How many times are you going to post the same thing?I would not hand Nelson-Ododa a starting spot. Doesn’t deserve one. Hasn’t played as a post needs to. Is always a minus in every big game. The only thing we can count on from Olivia is that she will blow layups.
You are absolutely right. The simple truth of your words leaves me humbled and impressed. Thank you, thank you so very much for sharing them.I don’t know. Maybe when people start acknowledging the problem instead saying she’ll be a sure starter next year.
I haven’t read or heard anyone else here “get it” by the way.
I think you are right, though I hate to see Evina go. She played a critically important role this year both on and off the court. I’d love to have her back, but I wish her every success if she decides it’s time for her to leave.Evina has to leave. She's incurred serious knee injuries on which she's had two surgeries already. She has nothing left to prove in the college game. She has a great deal to lose if she incurs further injures on that knee while playing for free in the college game. On top of that, she will be contesting for playing time next year with a slew of new players, all highly ranked, all with similar skill sets.
The calculation is simple: she needs to turn pro and make as much as she can while her injured knee holds out. This is a no-brainer.
We love what she's done for us. She has nothing to apologize for when she declares for the pros. It's the rational decision.
Good luck to her.
