I think that Mallory has the potential to be a pleasant surprise. First of all, she played, and starred, for four years under an excellent college coach. She undoubtedly learned a lot under Roebuck and knows how to apply it, as evidenced by the fact that she won two state championships in two years as a high school head coach, going 51-4. Finally, she has seven years of experience as an assistant coach at the D1 level, the last one as the associate head coach. Her first challenge will be reaching out to the top players on the roster and getting them to stay on and convincing them that they can take a big step next season. Next, she'll have to make some hard decisions regarding underclassmen and then recruit to fill some holes, notably point guard and a 4 man (lady) that can rebound. I think that she'll bring a lot of energy to this challenge and surprise a lot of people next season.
