I don't know which is the best 3 point shooter...Both can light it up...Mo Money Jones is better going to the rack...Jones takes it to the rim like Davis and Gray did for us...Zarielle is quicker and a little more dynamic...Also, Queen Zaay dominated better competition...But Morgan Jones has that great length that cannot be over valued on either end of the floor

That would leave 10 scholarship players returning for the 2018-19 season, and we have one incoming player who's committed for the 2018 class right now in Henderson. So that's 11 scholarship players, leaving 4 available open slots, if the staff even wants another full scholarship roster again. The last time we had 15 on scholarship, we had transfers out of the program in White and Duckett, and we actually only had 14 on the roster then....

We'll have 14 on scholarship next season, 11 returning for '18-'19, and we have 3 scholarships remaining for the '18 class. Jennings has two years of eligibility should she choose to stay in school for a fifth year and not leave like Kaela and Allisha. Lindsey Spann is the third senior who will leave along with Wilson and Cuevas-Moore at the end of next season.

She doesn't have the ball skills and shot making ability of Gray. She is a lot like Welch. She isn't really bigger, a quicker more aggressive version I'd say. She does shoot better free throws than Welch.

Jennings has eligibility for 2018 if she decides to stay. She could have a big year for us. She definitely seems a lot more upbea here than when she was at UK. There is an outside chance she goes pro after this year.

The point i am trying to make is she is better than Gray in the post..Gray is an all court scorer...DeCosta is a terrific post scorer and rebounding machine... Aquira is 2 inches taller than Welch with more quickness...I don't know that she has Welch's leadership ability...But i hope we get to find out

Aquira will probably end up being a "double double" player in time. Big, quick, athletic player with natural jumping ability, who doesn't mind mixing it up. When she played for USA basketball as a U16 & U17, in pressing or trapping situations she was "extremely disruptive". Aquira reminds me a lot of Shakayla Thomas who Dawn recruited but went to Florida State only she is 3 inches taller. She's going to be a great recruit for any program; hope we land her.
