    I notice that Justine feeds her the ball every chance she gets... not that she wouldn't anyway.

    Justine invited to USA Basketball trial

    I think she will flourish in a team setting, but hitting an open shot is hitting an open shot. And she is not being asked to do anything that is out of her wheelhouse in these games. Nobody is coming to any conclusions, but we are gathering data and asking about what others have seen or think...

    Justine invited to USA Basketball trial

    She has a reputation as a sharpshooter but I have yet to see a game where that has been the case. I have only watched this tournament and some of the all-star games though so it is a limited sample size. Has anyone else seen her light it up, or have stats which show that? I kept thinking that...

    Justine invited to USA Basketball trial

    The threes Justine missed were all about 4-6 ft behind the 3 pt line. I think she hit all of the ones which were 3 ft of less behind it so the coaches might tighten her leash a bit if that is consistent. Her arms are surprisingly long and allow her to recover well. And she will need to because...

    You can stop proving his point about the sense of entitlement any time now. They aren't entitled to anyone's entertainment dollar no matter how good or bad they are, and their business model of extorting the NBA for money will limit their appeal because everyone understands what a shakedown...

    Either way, it is not a problem. If someone is not getting floor time then it is because they were outplayed. This process of internal culling will be going on everywhere now with all successful programs. Great players will want to play with great players, and it will be based on actual...

    They are bullies. And when you call them on it they act all innocent and aggrieved. Don't let them make you feel unwelcome. They don't control anything, which is good since they can't even control their own behavior.

    I can see Wynn, Miles, Franklin, Key and Horston in together when we want to lock down on defense. But it is hard to see where Marta will get minutes. She is going to have to be one of those players who is the straw who stirs the drink if she wants to get much playing time. Marta, Horston...

    That is what she looked to me when I watched the all-star games. No way was she 6'4" She is very slightly built too, so it is good she won't be relied upon for a lot of minutes and can get in the weight room and at the training table. It is pretty much the perfect situation for her.

    With the talent Tennessee has now accumulated, what would you consider a successful season?

    There are some good passers coming in. The returning players need to work on their catching. A lot of Jordy's turnovers were due to her teammates having bad hands and poor court awareness. Powell and Pissott can both dish it. Not sure about the others. I think a Final Four would be successful...

    I saw Justine get 3 blocks and a handful rebounds in the all-star game. She had a nice runner from the free throw line --- very pretty arc on the ball. Her head is always up looking for the outlet pass when she is coming down court, and her coach had her inbounds the ball at every opportunity...

    If Kellie can get a reputation of taking players with very raw offensive skills like Rae, Wynn and Rivers, and refining them, then she will have a huge advantage in recruiting. That is really hard to do. Most of it is on the player and their willingness to work. But the coach lays out the...

    Might be good for recruiting to point out the relative development of Rae and Westbrook. One was much more highly touted, but the other improved her game more under the tutelage of the coaches at UT.

    You seem to be saying you have some insight as to who they are going after so who are they looking at?
