So...LSU will be barely just good enough to keep the coach from getting fired again?

Yeah...not sure why they refuse to pull the plug. The program seems to be going nowhere. Not to be harsh, but they look to be one of the only schools in the SEC that don’t care about WBB.

I highly doubt we are making the tournament again next year, even with Pointer and Aifuwa (hasn't announced but assuming she does) back. Tiara Young honestly was a big reason we even had a winning conference record the first half of SEC season and she is now gone. Seay and Trasi are gone as well and no one behind them showed they were much better either. So you lose your 3rd, 4th and 5th best scorers (SEC stats only) with a bunch of unknown recruits. They added the Vandy transfer but she isn't a very good scorer.

Unless they get a big transfer recruit who can score, I would expect more of the same next year. Pointer can't do it all on her own. Teams will double or triple team her next year and basically make anyone else beat them IMO.

As expected. Aifuwa returns for LSU. Jailen Cherry returns as well.
They really need to add another guard who can score more consistently. I like Cherry but she isn't very consistent.

I don't know what to make of Payne and Shematsi

Yep. Staiti was looking around, at least a little bit, at other options, so having her choose to come back to UGA is a very nice win for them.

I like Payne. Not much to view of her. But with more playing time. She can give a spark on offense(nothing to really brag on with our offense of course). But she can take and hit the 3 and mid-range from what I've seen from here and tcu.

I wish Davis would break through. But she, Like Young, just don't fit what Fargas brings. Which is why I'm over her as well.

Davis and Young were both very impressive out of high school to be dwindled to the role they were playing.

Georgias gonna be even better next year.... do you know if Combs is back too?
Isn't she classified as a redshirt junior this year? I would think so. They signed a really strong duo (Hollingshead and Richardson)

I'm curious if they add from the portal as well, maybe to get some more shooters.

Not specific to Georgia, but to a number of schools with seniors deciding to return. I just wonder how that will change team dynamics - most teams have a regular progression for their players from limited minutes as a freshman, to more minutes as a sophomore, more responsibility as a junior, and a glorious senior year. Georgia for example had 13 players this year and three due to graduate replaced by two incoming freshmen. Now at least 2 senior starters are coming back for a fifth year which reduces minutes for the 4th year seniors, and back down the order to the freshman that will have a hard time finding minutes.

I think the next years of extra eligibility may well help fuel the transfer portal as players see their path forward somewhat blocked. It is a blessing for teams to have the extra experience of talented players, it may just create other issues elsewhere in the roster.
