Subject: i've followed Nicci's regime from the get go
In reply to: gate bb fan 's message, "Re: Women's Basketball" on 11/19/15 9:36:12am Thu

I've watched/followed most of the games since Nicci took over.
If your point is that they're not real good or great, you're correct.
But, from watching the first two games, I think that they're an improved team, especially their grittiness on D.
I've never denied that Nicci took on a tough job nor have I been an apologist for Nicci, especially regarding her continuous staff turnover and lack of truly great recruiting success stories.
The three seniors have the most cumulative playing time of any group that Nicci has led so far. Supporting them are bench players Sophs Kateri Stone, Julia Barcello and Ariel Etheridge. Freshman Mylah Chandler looks very promising. Altho she starts two juniors, their minutes are limited. Jr. guard Katie Curtiss adds more to the team than 6'3" Steph Polland.
The other sop and 3 frosh have yet to demonstrate any consistent value added for the team. They'll need to step up. But, it will be a gradual process over the season.
There's a reasonable chance they can improve on last year's PL record. The o.o.c. schedule is really tough. But, Nicci is using that approach for gradually upgrading the recruiting draw and marketing the program overall.
