Probably Durr, only because she can play the two. And Mitchell would be a senior when they both got here. I think if Cooper comes Lambert is probably out of the picture. Sadly, there's a part to this no one else is speaking on and that is the real threat of transfers.

But to answer your question. Since this lineup would be so talented Dawn may have to swap out five at a time like in AAU. Which makes sense fresh bodies. fast pace, with a high talent level on the floor at all times. Other teams won't be built like this except a few.

Here's my first five assuming everything goes as planned for 2015.
Mitchell-PG (she's a senior here)
Deshields-SG
Wilson-SF
White-PF
Coates-C

I would think we'd be in better shape with Lambert than either of the other two.

I don't see anyone in the frontcourt leaving. The backcourt will be fighting for minutes though.

There was no West Quad when I graduated in 2001. It's really nice. There is a lot of construction going on in Assembly and I don't even know what is it. Something is being built next to the Collesium.

And it cost money to keep your students having access to updated technology and if you want to attract better professors you need to open up your budget even more.

USC athletics is the lifeblood of economy in Columbia. So you HAVE put a ton of money to it. And it is worth every single penny. The more money we put into it and the more successful our big money sports are, the money we are going to get from TV Networks deals and the more funding we have for future projects and scholarships and other forms of financial aid, and improving the overall quality of our education.

We are not trying to make things CHEAPER, because Cheaper is not BETTER. And that is their mission, to provide the best education as possible and for that, they needs as much money as possible, and for that, they have pump as much money as is feasible into athletics so that they can get even more money out of it.

However, I digress, because this thread is about Diamond Deshields.
We'll just digress then... I'd rather be happy about the possiblities for our Women's BBall team anyway.

I would say yeah, because common opinion is that Cooper is a heavy Tennessee lean eventhough she is visiting us. While Lambert says she wants to major in International Business and looking at her list you have some teams that are either down like Ohio State and some teams that are losing a lot of talent and probably on their way down like Duke and Stanford, and the other team is Colorado.

We've always been in consideration for Cooper, yeah I know the Vol fans feel as if she is a lock. I just don't see it. What would make her jump on at the last minute to go on an unofficial visit with Diamond(in which they pay for)when she already knows where she is going? Why is it in our paper if it's just a visit? Why are they tweeting, just to piss us off when they say Tennessee? I think someone feels something. Just my gut. As far as Lambert goes, hey the early bird gets the worm.

I'm not sure about Cooper, since she's a junior in high school. She does have a true-life special on MTV this summer. There's some debate on whether she picked a school or not.

But it's being reported that Deshields wants to attend summer school, wherever she goes so she will commit sooner rather than later. And I honestly think she wants to get this nightmare over ASAP.

I don't think Cooper is a lock, I just have no reason to doubt that she is or was or is no longer leaning UT. We could get her. All three are dynamite PGs.

Deshields comment about her next program:

DeShields just turned 19 last March. Looking back at the 17-year-old that committed to North Carolina in 2012, DeShields realized she emphasized the wrong things. This was her answer when asked what she learned from that process.
“The most important thing that I have learned is that I think it has more to do with relationships, being able to speak and be heard and be listened to,” DeShields said. “I just think that it’s going to be really important the relationship that I have with every coach and every player at whatever college I decide to go to.
“Because these are the people that you spend most of your day with, and I think relationships are going to be very important to me and comfort. I am not saying I did not have that at North Carolina, but that is what is going to be really important for me at this point.
“Not the gear. The shoes. The locker room. That stuff doesn’t matter to me anymore. I don’t want people telling me that I can be Michael Jordan. I want what’s real.
“I want what can’t be touched. I want what’s not tangible. I want emotion. I want love and happiness and all of those things that can’t be touched.”

That's pretty cool. The friendships you make in college are typically for the long haul.

This sounds like she wants to have a bunch of friends on the team. Makes sense I suppose. Maybe they were not a tight group up in tarhole country.

I've seen some messageboard talk that McDaniel was a little jealous of all the attention to DeShields .
