    Like YanktonJack67 said, this team will beat every SL team besides USD with our height and athletic advantage alone. The defense could be scary good by league play with their length and athleticism. USD heavy favorites for regular season and SL tourney. Sad to say that.
    USD might be the favorites, but I am not ready to give them the title. They are going to really miss Alison Arens and all she did for them. She is as hard to replace for them as Madi and Macy are for us and I suspect there will be a few times this season it will show up.

    Last night it just felt like they needed someone to just step up and lead the team. We cannot get frustrated when they put constant pressure on the ball.

    Agree 100%. Also the officials were not the best last night, 50/50 calls all went to Creighton. Some horrible reach ins that weren't called and some of the charge calls against us were bad.

    I agree some of the calls didn't go in our favor but the team that is playing harder with the momentum usually get more calls to go their way. We were pretty good in the first half and dictated the flow of the game. 2nd half they couldn't miss and we only scored 5 points in the 4th quarter.

    Leaders lead and inspire others to give more of themselves and instill confidence in each teammate to make plays when they're given the opportunity to, this in turn builds team cohesiveness and makes the game easier. I'd like to think that all five of our starters have some leadership qualities in them and I think they all do. We had that team cohesiveness and confidence in spades last season, it's just a little bit harder to come by so far this season, it'll come, I have no doubt.We just have to wait for it all to come together like I think it will, as soon as they get a few wins under their belt. I know this just sounds like a pep talk, but I really do think these women are all fierce competitors and will find that mojo soon, just based on the toughness I've seen in them from past season's and just a belief that they'll find the right solutions to fix what's ailing them right now.Oh, and,making a few more buckets won't hurt either

    I'm not ready to throw this team away by any means. But the fact remains we need to some better shooting from the backcourt to open up the post. I think it will come, to a degree. We might be in a position to be looking for a grad transfer PG to take up some of the slack next year, considering we lose RCJ. IDK, its a weird deal to have sooooo many good post players and not a reliable guard or two. But they are "kids" doing their best for he program. I will support.

    This team is going to be fine. I like to think the 'bumps and bruises' in these first two games will be good learning tools.

    RCJ is fine... Theunick can shoot the ball (she scored about a million points in HS...) wasn't counted on to do so last year, and is still finding her way. Tylee can also shoot it.

    They start to get some shots to fall, and all of a sudden they are going to be very difficult to defend.

    Selland and/or Burkard are our current Go To players for a quick bucket.

    I've said this a few years in a row, AJ and this team always play better at the end of the season. I don't see why this can't be any different.

    imo, no........i just don't see the jacks getting a consistent perimeter threat this season. i believe i have stated this earlier, if i am the opponents coach, i clog up the middle as much as possible and try to make the jacks prove they can hit the 3 on a consistent basis. yes, bb can be a funny game and there may be a few games where practically everyone is hitting around the perimeter. we'll see. i hope they prove me wrong, but, i am just not seeing the threat that fans are used to seeing. sorry.
    looked at realtimerpi.com a bit ago. if i remember correctly, jacks sitting at 211? i don't think they have ever been that low since DI have they?

    Do we have a known commodity from the 3 point line this year like we've had in the past? No....but as this team finds its way I think they'll get much better from beyond the arc. I thought AJ's weekly update this week was spot on. He said everyone on this team is still learning their role and how they fit into the scheme of things. At this point in the season they're still learning concepts, schemes, spacing, etc., so they're doing a lot of thinking on the court. He expects them to transition from thinking to just relaxing and playing in the very near future. Once that happens, I think more shots will start to fall as we start to play more relaxed and more comfortable.
