Seems like a good pickup. Her ranking is completely unclear to me, but she used to be a top-20 recruit from what I can tell. *shrug*

Coach Green pulling a top-100 recruit before she coaches a game is a big f@cking deal.


There is little doubt the MBB and football buzz is helping, but Green is the real deal. It’s just going to take a some time to get these kids on the court. We will probably lose some games this year, but i expect to see a much tougher, more competent team.
This team currently has really good pieces / players and now with a system that matches the players skills I think they will take great strides in moving forward this season. Today’s scrimmage with ND is a perfect example!
what happened at the scrimmage that reflects great strides? I hope you are right.

This season, I just want our games to be competitive. Last year, we went 1-13 in the B1G. Of those 13 losses, 11 were by 15 or more points. That's crazy and unacceptable. I know it's going to take time for us to get into the top half of the conference. We haven't been there since 2012-13. Playing competent defense, fighting, and keeping games close can happen now.
