2 of the misses were those wild throws as time runs out. The five steals doesn’t include balls knocked out of bounds, several near steals, almost total shut down defense on her opposite, smooth ball handling, directing the offense. She does in each game what is required. Last week was scoring in double figures in one game, making nine assists in another. She moves, really moves on the floor. And this comes from a guy who has seen ever UConn game in the past decade or two. Box scores are often meaningless. That’s why I asked if you saw her play. I have seen her in 7 games. She comes from good stock. Her mom played on Hall of Fame coach Ceal Barry’s teams in the glory days. True, she was only the No. 16 point guard and around 60th overall in recruiting evaluations but there is high school good and college ready. She might not have all the buzz given she committed to CU in the crib. All I am saying is that if she is playing this well just 7 games in her career, the future looks very good. Wisconsin isn’t much but they have a good coach in long time UConn assistant. And I am well aware that only two of CU’s wins have come against 2021 NCAA tourney teams so it remains to be seen how she’ll do against higher ranked teams. She is coming off the bench but that is pretty meaningless in Colorado’s constant subbing, starting early in game. There are lots of great guards. I am overjoyed we got her.I had to check the box score to see what kind of fantastic performance caused such a bold proclamation.
2 points (1-4 FG), 2 ast, 1 reb in 24 minutes against Wisconsin (maybe the worst team in P5?). I'll give you that the 5 steals are nice but it seems like you are trying too hard to go against the grain on this one.
