I don't think any cuts have been made. They started with 19 I believe and will cut to 12. I think originally they invited 22 but ended up w 19. I think it's safe to say Rickea, Angel, and Janiah are making this team. Sure hope Jewel does as well.
Tiny glimpses fm today's workout: at 40 sec in, Jewel (#26) with the nice drive and mid range . At 1:16, Rickea (#34) with a power drive, a step thru in traffic, and ends it with the beloved one foot fade away from in front. She follows immediately n the next clip w a really hard foul, don't accuse her of not playing D. Gives the immediate hand up after the smackdown.
Yes 22 and three are gone for whatever reason.I don't think any cuts have been made. They started with 19 I believe and will cut to 12. I think originally they invited 22 but ended up w 19. I think it's safe to say Rickea, Angel, and Janiah are making this team. Sure hope Jewel does as well.
Probably had a last workout today and will announce roster tonight or in the morning.
Long time before we see them be teammates
Only school with two players on the team. What an opportunity! Congratulations to Jewel and Kea.
They already have some experience together from 3x3. This is going to make our team even better, an excellent opportunity for them to get some court time before the season.
Wow. The best possible news. From the first clips released, it was obvious Rickea was going to rule. But Jewel is a fantastic surprise. Beat out Barker, Morrow and Flau'jae! Flau didn't even make the finalists. Extra bonus that Jewel presents as such a likeable, fun, grounded kid.here are 4 players left as "finalist" and those 4 should be the last four to make 12 BUT they are going to try and bring in more to try out for the team... That's gotta sting
Maybe the best news, according to my social media director, there is now an official Kea/Jewel dance video on tik tok. LOL perhaps the most important sign of teammate bonding!Great that Rickea and Jewel have this chance to get to know each other and play together!
About 200 years?When was the last time the LVs had players at the 1, 2, and 3 spots on the floor with this much offensive ability?
UCLA has two also. Betts and Osborne
but very impressive nonce the less! there are 4 players left as "finalist" and those 4 should be the last four to make 12 BUT they are going to try and bring in more to try out for the team... That's gotta sting
I'd add Tess as a smart, experienced situational sharpshooter, and Powell as experienced PG backup. Huge upgrade in this group. I hope/ believe Sara will step up as a reliable backup for Rickea in the 3 or 4 mins per game our Queen is not on the court lol. This is an impressive group!I’m excited about the Rickea-Jewel-Destinee trio. Having multiple scoring guards can take you places.
Stop it. I can only take so much good news. Did they release stats on the scrimmages? Where'd you hear the Jewel gem?Jewel had 23 points and 10 rebounds in one of the scrimmages. I imagine that performance sealed the deal for her to make the team. Rickea was dominating inside she is going to have a fabulous senior season for us.
Morrow and Barker probably will, but it won't necessarily be 4 of the 5 finalists who make the squad. They've said from the start they might bring in additional prospects to complete the roster.I imagine Morrow will end up making the team to give LSU two players as well. She is in the five of which four will make it.
