With our young team I have felt all year we are a year away from being top end of the conference. This is the 'transition' year from Amy's inherited players to her own recruits. They do need to get to .500 and make some noise in the tourney to play in the post season.Iowa is just plain better than us right now. Hopefully we can turn that around in future years
I would agree on Verbeek, she is a physical player on everyone and will need to find a balance as she picks up quick fouls frequently because of it.The Hawkeye fan in our house felt that Verbeek was playing more physical than Gustafson ever plays... it's the other teams that play physical with her, it's the only chance they have.
At 13-15, the women now need to win their last game and go 2-1 in the conference tournament, which means a semifinal appearance. Unfortunately, I don't think we'll be able to drop into the bottom four to pick up an easier win.
