I like this team for next season. Youth and another infusion of solid talent has this program moving up. The ladies do need to learn how to hold a lead and manage clock late in games and end of qtrs. They do that and I think they will be fine. The Big Ten loses some big time players to graduation too.They completely blew out Purdue on the road last week. This team has a lot of potential and only lose Simon (who has been pushed to the bench by better players) and a guard that never plays.
The lineup next year:
Seniors: Whitish, Eliely, Mitchell (doesn't play much)
Juniors: Cain, Kissinger
Sophomores: Haiby, L.Brown, Verbeek, Mershon
That is some outstanding balance on the court. Inside presence with Cain & Verbeek, shooters with Kissinger & Whitish (Haiby, Brown, and Eleily also can shoot from outside), defensive guards with Eleily and Haiby. All-around shot creators in Brown (and Haiby). These team has lost 9 games by 6 points or less this season...they can easily make that up with experience and more confidence.
