Something very interesting for sure.
It might be skewed by outliers. Take away the Cavinder Twins and Paige's big deals and , and what does it look like for the field? I also saw in another report that the average Div 1 NIL deal was just shy of $400, and it's mostly for paid content to social media. Also gonna guess that some of the college girls that gain followers by posting thirst traps all over their social media pages are finally reaping the rewards of their efforts...

Kim said her team had never practiced going up against a 2-3. Excuse?
She said her team never practiced playing a 2-3 zone, because they are strictly man to man. They had to play a 2-3 because of the loss of Newby in order to protect their 2 bigs . She gave her team credit for being able to play the 2-3 without ever practicing it.

Duke lost at home to unranked Virginia Tech by 11 points last night.

Play at (4) NC State Sunday. Duke 3-3 in last six games.
It’s a growing program, not ready for prime time, and will slip some rest of season but will be better and better in the next 1-3 years. Great coach, great school, should work.

Boy, that Stanford Colorado box score looks familiar doesn’t it. Colorado kept it close until into 4 th quarter by evidently fouling the beejeezus out of Stanford on the floor, not shooting. Stanford had a big rebound margin and 22TOs. Colorado had like 15 steals and around 20 fouls. That does not sound like a fun game to watch.
So I guess the new defensive strategy is to maul away, get a bunch of fouls and steals and see how it shakes out.

Really competitive game. Colorado came out with great defensive intensity. In the end they just couldn’t maintain that for the duration. They started looking gassed toward the end of the first half. Lost steam in the second half a bit.

Q. Miller is a really nice player for them, she fouled out with 6:00 remaining or it may have been a closer outcome. She was far and away Colorado’s best offensive threat today.

I’ve heard the terms used interchangeably in the past. We always called it a 2-3 zone when I was in school but different regions will call it a 3-2.
A 2-3 and a 3-2 are NOT the same. Regionalism has nothing to do with it. Kim said and meant a 3-2, to help defend against Missouri's outside shooters.

I understand them to be different zones for different purposes. A 2-3 is a zone with 3 bigs and is designed to choke the middle where as a 3-2 is played with 3 guard/wing players to put more pressure on 3 point shooters. I only like the 3-2 played as a matchup to stop skip passes for easy 3's. All zones have deficiencies but are an attempt to mask your deficiencies in a man defense. If your zone throttles the other guys strength and the other team cannot adjust to take advantage of your zone it's a good way to go.

To clarify with everyone, Kim said it was 3-2 zone they played since Mizzou shoots lights out from 3. Her teams only play man and it’s a credit to Nikki for basically being a zone team because these kids knew enough from the past years to play it well enough to win Thursday.
Yes. But I heard Kim say more than once that the team succeeded because SHE told them what to do.
