Best news so far! Really looking forward to seeing her this year. And to think we have 3 more seasons to watch her.

Let's line them up by class in UConn:

Sophomore: Butler, Chong, and Tuck

Freshman: Williams, Nurse, Ekmark, and Edwards

HS Senior: Collier, Boykin, Samuelson​

That's ten pretty good players, all of whom will play for multiple seasons.

I like our chances.

To me, Tuck is the X factor this year. If she's truly healthy and can develop like she would have in a normal sophomore season, that'll go a long way to negating the key losses of Dolson and Hartley.

Good news for Morgan, her family and friends.

Good news for the team, coaches and fans.

Bad news for opponents.

Butler is actually part of the freshman class since she will have three years of eligibility after this year.

UcM: that's the way I see it as well. She will be a soph when the new frosh become sophs....at that point Tuck and Chong will be juniors, I believe.

It's weird, we've discussed this ad nauseam, but people still seem to mess that up??? Butler is a Soph (school wise) this year, but basically nothing (redshirt) basketball wise this year. Next year she will be a Soph basketball wise ( a Jr school wise). Same as Williams, Edwards, Ekmark and Nurse. That's her class for basketball purposes.

I've explained it 3 or 4 times myself (besides all the others). Maybe everyone has me on "ignore"??

Morgan has the skills and savvy to be one of the best players in the country. I hope she is healthy enough to show everyone that.

I'm probably one of the most cautious in terms of expectations for a player following serious leg injuries, but all reports are sounding really good. More optimistic about it now.

Who could ignore you. Always interesting, even when dead wrong.:cool:

Have Pulido and Lawlor left the team?

The official roster still shows them, which makes me smile. They stepped up when the team needed them for practices and such, and TLaw turned out to be a bit of a deadeye 3-point shooter.

If you recall, at one point in their HS careers, Morgan was rated #1, ahead of MoJet and Stweie. Before the injury.

That was definitely an oversight though...
