  1. 2018-2019 Recruiting

    How does Keplin look on the defensive end of the court?
  2. Nice final game for Dale Jones. After all of his injuries it was nice to see him healthy for most of the year.
  3. Pluto is pretty bad. It never cuts out if you use the Watch Big Sky internet link.
  4. Nice comeback. Stewart was great today. Some games he will hardly take the ball to the rim and settle for three point attempts. Love watching him taking it to the rack!!
  5. 2017-18 Season

    The freshmen and sophomores at USD, SDSU, and even NDSU are much better than ours. We will be respectable next year in the Summit with Klabo and Freije but then it looks bleak.

    Reinke never came back in the game after hitting her 2 three pointers. Franklin played the remainder of the second half and scored one point and got beat on a drive to the basket. Frustrating.

    So down by 9 with over a minute to go and we don't press. We have been behind in the majority of our games and apparently we don't practice a full court trapping defense.

    So Brewster takes out Reinke after she hits 2 three pointers and puts in Franklin. I don't understand that.

    13 turnovers. With only 1 senior on this team we are stuck watching the same train wreck next year. We better hope the recruits coming in next year are better than what is on the floor now.

    Not having Fallyn Freije playing due to an ankle sprain really hurts the offense. Sawatzke, Dailey, and Reinke took the ball to the basket in the first half and got some baskets but stopped penetrating in the second half. We tried to feed Klabo in the post in the second half and turned the ball over too much. We just physically do not have the athletes that USD and SDSU have. They can take the ball to the hole with either hand plus shoot from the outside. Our players are a bit too one dimensional. On the good side we did play decent defense for 3 quarters. The third quarter was a disaster, leaving open three point shooters. For some reason Brewster does not have us playing a zone full court trap or double teaming when we trail late in games. We just play a vanilla man to man full court which doesn't created any turnovers. Listening to the Northern Colorado announcer was painful on Pluto, he was complaining so much about the officials.
  11. Just heard the announcer when the game was over that Jones was hurt.
  12. Is Dale hurt or sick? I am trying to watch both the mens and womens games so I didn't hear why he didn't play.

    The Pluto announcers said we expect her back for the tournament. We really need her for the Northern Colorado game.
  14. We aren't getting much production from Stewart. He is not a good 3 point shooter. He had much better success early in the year taking the ball to the basket. 4 times tonite we had the first entry pass result in a turnover. With our problems stopping teams from scoring and rebounding, we need to win the turnover stat.
  15. Recruiting Under Jones

    I agree with the premise that we have a lack of height and strength in the center and forward positions. Unfortunately, with 355 Division 1 schools there are only so many big bodies out there. Especially with our location. Not much available in ND, northern Minnesota, and Canada. Hard to get anyone from South Dakota with the SD schools. Same with Nebraska, the SD schools have the advantage over UND. In Iowa we have gotten some good kids because of our coaches are from there but again we are competition with N.Iowa and the SD schools. I see 6-10 Own Coburn from Iowa committed to SDSU. I agree we should try to red shirt players like Walter and Franken and have them hit the weights. SDSU is redshirting 3 players and have a thin bench. In defense of the the current coaches, when Bernstein and Shanks left after graduating in May, it is too late to recruit any big bodies to replace them. Getting more foreign players might be an answer but can be difficult without and foreign connections to coaches.
