To my eyes a big improvement. Thanks.
Pictures of the players benefit from the increased contrast and framing, too.

Think it needs more Maxine, but whatever. Gives the status nicely and concisely. Can't wait for Nov. 11th to roll around again.

Just noticed that Breanna is from CNS, another one of our NYS girls about to deliver for UConn. Also noticed while searching for a proper avatar that in an unbiased ranking of the top 10 sexiest (meaning that they are good FT shooters, I think) female basketball players posted on an NBA message board, 5 were CT stars (4 UConn and 1 Yalie), and the board was a Spurs feature. Nice to know that the Huskies are loved as much for their smiles as their titles.

I used the colors from the football recruiting site - see what you guys think. The site needs an update, when I do I'll try to add the rankings that I can find.

UConn women's recruiting
Wow...... looking great. Props for your continued hard work and always excellent job!

Now... if we can just have a couple of those players tell Geno Yes.... ;)

Thanks, guys. I have more work to be done, it's not just right yet. I will eventually add ratings info and, yes, there are more names to be added. But that look is where the site is heading.

Nan, your recruiting site is greatly improved. The lettering and photos look substantially better with the new colors. Thanks.

Incidentally, I'm a baseball fan who was converted to basketball by the UConn women back in the early 2000s thanks to coverage on CT PBS. In fact, I'd say I'm more of a UConn women's basketball fan these days than a baseball fan which is rather amazing since I started rooting for the Dodgers when they were in Brooklyn. And in my new fanaticism over the UConn women, your recruiting site is a regular stop on my Internet browsing. I keep looking for new recruiting prospects for 2013 and look forward to the information you post.

BTW, one of the worst trades in Dodger history occurred in 1993 and involved Delino DeShields, father of Diamond DeShields. He came to LA for Pedro Martinez, and the Dodgers lost a future Hall of Famer. Delino did little for LA. But I would be delighted if Diamond follows her hero, Maya Moore, to UConn and helps lead the team to another national championship.

Welcome, Roy. I hope you enjoy it here on the Boneyard. Keep posting!

BTW, UConn's got a pretty good baseball team, too. :)

Thanks, Nan. I'm eagerly looking forward to the season and to posting on the Boneyard. Can't say, though, I'm in a big hurry for November!

Looks great Nan. Love the "blues"

BTW, something struck me looking over the recruits.

Breanna.jpg


Look how high that release is. Remember how tall she is and how long her arms are. She has got to get fouled a billion times with people trying, vainly, to reach that ball. Her right forearm must get black and blue from getting hacked at...probably closer to the elbow than her wrist! ;)

I made a promise that instead of lurking this year I would get more involved.
