Scored 27 pts, 6 assists, 3 steals, 4 rebounds!
Vegas has already proclaimed Plum as their PG of the now and the future & McBride is at the 2 so she needs a new team.I hope this shows that her knee is getting back to 100%. MoJeff at 100% will be starting point guard anywhere except a team already headed by a UConn PG so no trade needed. Just a healthy MoJeff necessary. I have missed watching her.
That's all I care about, whenever I hear her name, whenever I think of her. A healthy Moriah is good enough to make the US Olympic team. The CT Sun or the Liberty would be nice landing spots.I hope this shows that her knee is getting back to 100%. MoJeff at 100% will be starting point guard anywhere except a team already headed by a UConn PG so no trade needed. Just a healthy MoJeff necessary. I have missed watching her.
I would agree with those points, bearing in mind that Crystal's career is not yet close to being over.
If it was up to me I'd take Plum off the USA team and replace her with WNBA all star Tiffany Hayes.Here are the facts on Plums's recent play based on WNBA.com
Plum is playing for Fenerbache in Turkey. They are in third place in the KBSL (Turkish League) standings at 14-3, and in second place in the EuroLeague’s Group B at 7-4.
In the KBSL, Plum is averaging 18.6 points, 3.5 assists, 2.9 rebounds and 1.4 steals per game while making 60.7 percent of her two-pointers, 50.6-percent of her three-pointers, and 89.2 percent of her free throws.
In EuroLeague competition, Plum is averaged 15.3 points, 3.3 assists, 2.2 rebounds and 1.4 steals per game, while making 38.8 percent of her three-pointers and 93.8 percent of her free throws.
Based on this and my own eyes when seeing her in Euro league, Plum would not beat out Moriah if healthy but I think they are both talented enough that they would both need to get near equal minutes. Lindsey Allen is a nice backup PG by the way.
On the other hand, Plum did not look good to me on the US team ?
The UConn single-game record for assists is 13 by 3 players, including Renee. Before this year, 5 players, including Sue, Dee, and Mo, had 12. Moriah tallied 12 at Temple on January 28, 2014. She's the career assists leader.I would agree with those points, bearing in mind that Crystal's career is not yet close to being over.
Did Moriah ever have games with 9, 10, or 12 assists? If so, I don't remember them.
I like them both, so I’m not going to compare them. Yes, Crystal can make passes that Mo can’t, but Mo was/is a very good passer. Mo is a better defender. She was a "shut down" defender. No two players are exactly the same.
I would think New York could use her. Boyd and Hartley have both been inconsistent at the lead guard spot and boy do the Liberty need someone that can pass, shoot, AND defend consistently. Healthy Moriah Jefferson=all of that.True but without Moore, not sure I'd want to stick her there. Maybe the CT Sun?
At Uconn for 20 years (about) there was only one PG SUE BIRD---then came Moriah Jefferson--she twisted my head and my brain. I feel like I'm cheating on Sue, but I doubt there is a better PG who can do more physically than Moriah..Scored 27 pts, 6 assists, 3 steals, 4 rebounds!
When this coach speaks :; I listen.MoJeff, when healthy, is one of the most dynamic PG's in WBB!
If she can get with a team that can utilize her talent she will be an All-Star and Olympian!
