    I've seen a handful of Twitter handles w/ the "TM". Doesn't mean anything.

    He did it for the 2012/2013 team. He had some very good players on the bench, including Tuck and Jefferson

    That team had 11 players though, one of which was Heather Buck who basically didn't play. Next year's team has 14 players. And Tuck/Jefferson still averaged a combined 32 minutes a game which is not bad.

    In some years, we have played subs for the last 10-15 minutes of a game, and they have been scoring challenged. I don't see that next year, maybe not even if we play only the freshmen. Megan can score 10+ in a quarter easily. Andi adds shooting from distance. Lexi has a sweet stroke. Mikayla is an ankle breaker.

    Not our problem. It's Geno's, if it is a problem. That's why he's paid the big bucks. I'm not gonna have one moment of worry about it. I'd advise some of you to do the same.

    Blake , Thanks...Good for Megan to see the kinds of games she will be playing in and the crowds she will be playing in front of next year. I just hope she texts her other incoming classmates how exciting it was.

    They do it quite often in Illinois. They play the semi-finals and finals of the state tournament on the same day.

    Always thought that was crazy, although it did make it easier to see.

    I've never been a fan of it. It tilts the game in favor of deeper benches and leads to "rest" strategies instead of "playing" strategy.

    LD Bell won a tough one against #2 in the state Trinity on Tuesday (1/3).

    Lexi Gordon scored 14 points; her sister Myra led the way with 17.
