I hope to go to a Marquette game at the Al McGuire Center. My granddaughter is a freshman there.
I'll bet your granddaughter would love to attend a basketball game with you, and hang out afterwards. She would appreciate you making the effort to come and see her. College students always like having family come to visit them. It would be a memory she would never forget. I speak from experience. Be a blessing to her this year, go for it!! :)

I see Xavier is picked to finish last in the Big East. Maybe this is the year that Jamelle's
team finally wins the Battle of Cincinnati.

My granddaughter is very self-conscious. I was instructed to say nothing during her campus visit. She probably would be ok about going to the game with me--provided that I didn't cheer or bring attention to her.

Pretty forthright article from a the student paper. Author has obviously done hi homework. I think OSU just got their first commit for 2018 last week...there are not going to be a whole lot of folks to practice and play with after Mitchell and a few of the transfers leave this year. This is going to be one position to pay attention to throughout the year and at the end of the season.

I would love to see Jamelle finally be able to turn her program in the right direction and win some OOC games against top 50 competition, and finish in the TOP half of the conference standings this year.
She continues to have one hand tied behind her back, as she does not have access to the same players that the top 25 programs do. If you doubt my take, look at ESPN's top 100 Hoopgurlz prospects for 2017 & 2018, and see how many of them went (or have committed) to Cincinnati. I can save you the trouble, NONE!! Every year she and her staff have to try and do more with less. I'm not sure how much institutional support her program receives either.

My youngest GD told me the same thing whenever I attended one of her basketball games last year. I was told to not cheer so loud as to draw attention to my self (and embarrass her), and whatever I do, DO NOT call out her name!! :eek:

Saw it posted on Vol Nation that South Carolina is trying to get Cooper to play this year, anyone else hear this? I would think sitting out this year would be best for the team, unless we see Dawn play with 3 guards at a time.

How would the NCAA explain clearing someone who transferred to not face disciplinary action allegedly from former school, if approved?

Was she kicked off the team and forced to transfer if she wanted to keep playing college basketball?

In addition to potentially Cooper, Staley’s backcourt this year will likely include a rotation of sophomore guard Tyasha Harris, graduate transfer Lindsey Spann and senior Bianca Cuevas-Moore.

Read more here: South Carolina is seeking a waiver to let this transfer play right away, Staley says

I like Cooper, but that’s a lot of guards who probably think they should be starting seeking playing time, maybe Cuevas-Moore will be the 6th man again, or Staley can try to start both and Harris.

Cooper is bigger in stature and very versatile. If she's cleared she won't start... it'll probably be Harris and Cuevas (Dawn is loyal to her seniors, never forget) in the backcourt... Cooper will share minutes at point with Harris. Spann will share minutes at the two with Cuevas.... but the beauty here is that all four are capable of being a "point guard"... nice versatility in the backcourt... and Dawn will definitely experiment with lineups early on to find mismatches she can exploit later when the games really matter.

Cooper will start in the backcourt with Harris next year. Dawns entire reasoning for seeking this waiver (besides wanting a very skilled player eligible) is that if denied, Cooper will have sat for two straight years and potentially lose a year of eligibility... i don't know how that rationale was reached but that's their appeal.

Tennessee news paper reported that she didn't want to go in front of the disciplinary committee, so she chose to transfer instead. I guess because she's had prior incidents with the team before. If I'm not mistaken she was suspended before for rules violation.

Remember when Boston College was one of the top teams in the Big East? In FB, MBB, & WBB!
I guess the move to the ACC didn't work out for the teams just the money!
Now they're terrible in everything!

Dawn said that sitting out two years (injury + transfer year) would not be a great student athlete experience for her. Being suspended a year for fighting at Tennessee would not be a great student athlete experience either.

What a bizarre argument. The NCAA will probably grant the waiver.
