Think you're being a bit conservative; IMO that 'bench' could make the top twenty, not just start for somebody, if they put in the work this summer.

That's how good we need to be to take UCONN. Out-talent them first, out-work 'em second, then whip 'em.

A'ja's announcement today made my spring; I won't stop smiling until June or July. Then I'll start playing around with possible lineups. LOL, even better.

Gonna be fun watching Dawn&Staff Auerbach Auriemma.

Will be interesting to see what the lineup is opening night.

If I had to guess I'd say:

Sessions, Mitchell, Wilson, Welch, Coates

But then again it could just be the same players starting with the freshman studs all coming off the bench.

Because we have not had any shortage of players leave our state to go elsewhere...I just wish I knew HOW this 'closing' occurred. That was my main point.

Otherwise, its tough to say CFM isnt a closer- because we dont know one way or another

Yeah, I agree. The other thing is that CDS is pretty fortunate that AW is local...which helped us. It would have been much more difficult had she lived in Hartford, Raleigh or east TN. Eddie Fogler got some good recruits with BJ Mckie being a local guy, and he turned it into some good things.

Hopefully, CFM can bring some great ones in. It should be noted, that CDS does have an advantage in being well known as a player prior to her coaching career. She is already known as a legend without regard for her coaching career. Probably is easier to "Close the deal" when you have that on your side. (I'll never know..lol)

It's crazy the talent this team will have next year. And it will continue to get better. UConn is a monster when it comes to wbb, but I think another monster has just been can created.

Honestly don't think the starting lineup will matter very much next year. Instead take a look at how Red coached the Celtics back in the 60's when he sometimes had as many as nine future Hall-of Famer's on his squad(at the same time).

This is the piece we need to have the potential to get over that sweet 16 hump.

I think this recruiting class will be the one that takes Lady Gamecock basketball to that next level.

The success has gotten to their heads. They've been classless through the entire process. They wanted A'ja but they think she be overwhelmed and awed by the chance to play for their team and they take any rejection as an affront to their "greatness."

I am still concerned about our passing and outside shooting. We need to greatly improve on that this year. We can't have too much one-on-one basketball.

I read all through the Boneyard, UCONN's main messageboard and they were actually excited that she chose us. They really want someone else to get good enough to challenge them. They were all very complimentary of her and wished her and our program the best

I do too.. And it was because their Moderator had warned them earlier in the week and locked a couple of threads which were "not nice" to say the least.

And I'm not buying "they want someone good enough to challenge". When talent spreads to other schools, they don't have much of a choice in the matter, so it's more of an acceptance thing.
