Just wanted to start a thread to get a little discussion going on everyone's expectations for the upcoming season especially since it is finally a full roster of Cam's players... A few questions and my thoughts on each: 1. Who do you think the starting 5 SHOULD be to start the season? 1. Kiki Smith 2. Danielle Rainey 3. Lavendar Briggs 4. Kristina Moore 5. Emer Nichols 2. Who will be the team MVP? Rainey.... but Briggs may be right there with her by the end of the season. 3. Most improved? A few I think are possible.... Moore with a year of experience and coming back healthy and Kiki I think are the two most likely. Would love to see Zada become a more consistent post player for us as well. De'Oliviera is another that could be interesting to see how she develops and where she fits in on the roster. 4. Which new player (transfer or freshmen) are you most excited to see? Lavendar Briggs I think may end up being a special player.... but I am curious to see how Dut and Nichols look out there as well. 5. Biggest key to turning things around this season? Obviously having a good post game would be nice and we have some size and depth for a change BUT for me I think the key focus has to be TURNOVERS. I am hoping Kiki, Dani, and Ari with a year under their belts and the addition of some highly rated young guards allows us to be much better here. If we can eliminate a lot of the turnovers just trying to get it up the court not only do we have much better chances of scoring but can cut down on the easy baskets for the other team. 6. What would you consider to be an acceptable record/result at the end of the season? Year 3, fairly deep and balanced roster, manageable out of conference schedule, 7 returning players from last season.... I think this has to be a year that sees considerable improvement. I think anything under .500 is unacceptable at this point. Hovering at or above that and making the WNIT at least shows improvement and that we are heading in the right direction so I think that has be the realistic goal at minimum, but I really think we need to get to around 20 wins if we want the program to really catch some attention and show that Cam can change things for the program going forward.
