Perfect defensive posture.
grass roots campaign? not a bad idea but doubtful it will get any traction. DT was one of the very few players to not only get AA honors but NPOY consideration in spite of only averaging something like 16 PPG. the people who make those awards are generally much more concerned with scoring, and 6.8 PPG will not get anyone's attention. maybe her senior year, if she can average over 10 PPG and continue with her great numbers in assists, steals, rebounds, etc. perhaps she might make the 3rd team or something.We need to change some minds, open some eyes, about Kelly. She deserves to be voted an All American this year, so she can be honored with her name on the wall, where it belongs, while she is still an active player.
Is it something the BY can do?
Whoever said that gets kudos for being so perceptive. Anyone who knows basketball and watched that game without bias had to come away from it marveling at Kelly's toughness and all around great play..
On one of the TAMU fanboards I read a plaintive remark about Kelly Faris - "I wish we had a player like that."
MH I totally agree on everything you just said!Interesting. I have always associated Kelly and Bruinball.
I think Kaleena is our best player, but I think Kelly was the best on Tuesday.
The one who gets the most minutes almost every game, which tells us all what Geno thinks. Go Bria.
It just struck me which UConn men's player she most closely resembles in her on-court role and overall effect on the team -
Indeed it was and is one of the parallels I see. A great defensive player who could have great offensive breakouts.If memory serves me correctly wasn't Rick Moore's first half offensive performance against Duke in the NC game perhaps the most telling factor in UCONN's win ???
Maybe Kelly can parallel this in the NC game this year ! Opposing teams do have a tendency to ignore her on offense (unfortunately sometimes with good reason)
