  1. I'm really looking forward to seeing how this group improves throughout the season. With the only seniors being Morgan Haney, Alexis Stewart, and Tahmala Thorpe, this program has a chance to have a special season next year. However, they're already making strides and I can't wait to see how much they grow in conference play.
  2. Maybe, but in the past, I've seen a 5-4 point guard lead the country in assists & assists per game for the Lady Zips. And I've coached someone that wasn't even 5 feet. She was one of our program's most important players to winning a conference title and winning 20 games in a row two years ago at the varsity H.S. level. There are obvious limitations, but can also be an advantage in other areas. I think they will be most impactful on the defensive end. They're closer to the floor, so they're going to have a better chance for steals, deflections, and/or just making the ball-handler's day miserable. I believe the strength of this team will be the post players, particularly with Bass & Riley.
  3. Overall, no matter how this game turns out, know that this game is just the beginning. There's a women's basketball program in Central Ohio that has very high expectations this year and they came out flat against USC on a neutral court. The defending national champions with a lot of key players back, two big transfer pick ups, and the 2nd best freshman in one of the best NCAAW classes ever (I'm my opinion), lost to #20 Colorado by 14 points (92-78). This program lost to Oakland last year by 7 (67-74). Win or lose in overtime, it's impressive that with all these transfers they don't look as flat as some programs have looked today. It feels like this team will only improve the more time they get on the court together (which is probably a big factor in their high number of turnovers right now).
  4. I agree about the talent level in NE Ohio at the HS/Club level. I think it’s still too early to judge the new coach's recruiting at this moment, but I agree that so far it looks like she's done a decent job recruiting considering how late she got the job prior to last season. There is one decision on the recruiting trail for the class of 2024 that has me confused, but I want to see the entire 2024 class before I start to question the omission.

  6. 18 more have been added that have either received an offer, visited, or there has been interest according to social media posts (with a link to each one). Let me know if I have missed any that anyone else might have seen. I don't have them in order quite yet as I have been quite busy dealing with family members' rehab/recovery from surgeries they had this past month or so. Twitter/X has been hard to get all of them to show up when typing in search. I think I got them all, but you never know with these apps, especially Twitter/X right now.
  7. I gave up at halftime. I have no clue why the Clippers coach wouldn't play everyone. Some of the box scores I've seen from the summer league, most are playing everyone unless they shut someone down for the rest of the summer league. Part of me wonders if the first couple games the coach was trying to win to rise his own stock to show the rest of the league that he deserves a full time NBA assistant position so he kept playing the same guys (most were 2nd year guys too so that checks out). I'm glad to see X get some minutes yesterday. Hope he gets even more minutes tomorrow!
  8. Yeah, I watched it hoping to see him get some minutes. Planning on doing the same tonight. If he doesn't get any minutes again tonight, I might start disliking the Clippers again for cutting into my sleep for nothing.
  9. LA Clippers Summer League Schedule. First game is tomorrow night.
  10. Currently ranked 52nd in the country in the 2025 class
  11. Might go interim this year and have a full season to find the successor. I hope not because that would put a certain head coach in the discussion for it if that head coach and team has the success that we all think they will have this season.
  12. I wish I could go to this on the 21st, but I have a parent getting two surgeries within the next few weeks (first one being June 15th), and I'm not sure I'm going to be able to get away long enough to take the trip there and back (the drive to Akron and back will be as long as this event). Should be a fun night for those that have the chance to go with all the newcomers into the program (staff and student-athletes).
