Stanford Fan, Huskies Admirer
- Nov 28, 2018
I agree that Stanford has underwhelmed both for what you think a No. 1 should look like and also relative to the team at full strength, but it's worth noting that our second-leading scorer from last season, Carrington, had to sit for the entire tournament with an injury, Fingall is still recovering from her ACL tear and has been on minutes-restriction most of the season, and even Haley Jones was injured over the summer and didn't dress for early season practices, and Jump missed at least one game this season with a broken nose (that's still healing). That's on top of Dodson. So the team has not been at full strength at all this season, and therefore hard to measure their ceiling.Stanford should enjoy it while it last because it won’t be long. I have seen 3 of their games and while they did beat #10 MSU, that’s it and were not playing well against lesser teams. I will say They are missing Dodson who is a solid contributor. I just found them underwhelming for such a talented team.
