EXACTLY. I would Imagine it drives Dawn and Fred Chmiel nuts too. This is what I think she missed out on with her injuries in high school. It’s the quick thinking/decision making that is not on par with the others. She has all the skill but she hasnt figured out how to use it yet. She missed 2 entire years of high school ball because of injured knees. That’s a lot of experience she missed out on.She has a unique combo of size/wingspan and athleticism that should give her a leg up on the competition. Fans are waiting for that to translate into basketball skills. If she puts it all together, she would be almost unstoppable on offense and a complete terror on defense. A lot of us fans, myself included, think that she will finally turn that corner this season. I swear though, if she continues being a turnover machine, I will lose all my hair! Speaking of using her size, I nearly lost my mind on how often she would not protect the ball while searching for the basket. She would hold the ball around her knees staring up at the basket and some 5'7" PG would swipe the ball out of her hands. That drove me BONKERS last season! Hold the ball higher!
