    Parking restrictions, space availability and ticketers in full force so I only saw the second half of the WBK practice, first time I've seen Dut, good size, lots of energy, appears to be very coachable. I am optimistic about the post this season because I see how much improvement Coach Lang has already gotten with Emer, Zada and Paige, so I expect Faith to make strides in the next few weeks, earlier this spring/summer she was playing for the Canadian National team but was not a starter so she got lots of practice but not much live game time.

    Lots of drills practicing shooting, crisp passing, shot follow up and lots of work on strong fakes and pivots.
    From what I saw Lav has the quickest and smoothest release on the team, that is saying a lot with all the skills Dani has. Dani and Kiki continue to coach up the frosh, Nina is really quick, did not see much of her on defense but she has the quicks to be good, Funda was a fav of mine but the team wil be quicker with the new kids and minus Funda. I see improvement in Christina's game, seems more confident and ake visits over the next few weeksstill maintaining her aggressiveness, as the daughter of a BB coach she sees the game very well.

    Last night the BackCourtClub support group had their monthly meeting with Coach Lang as the speaker (last month was recruiting coordinator Miriam Rutzen). She is excited to be back in Gvl and in the Orange and blue, very upbeat about the Gator team and optimistic about the recruits scheduled to take visits over the next few weeks.

    yes went, the evening was OTR and that is strictly enforced as I learned a few years back but it is safe to say both coaches were very up beat and Bill Koss was a terrific emcee

    Women's basketball's Kristina Moore to represent Gators in Birmingham at annual gathering this weekend
    GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Sophomore forward Kristina Moore has been selected to represent the Florida women's basketball program this weekend at the SEC Basketball Leadership Council meeting at conference headquarters in Birmingham.

    Moore joins men's basketball's Dontay Bassett as the two Gators convene with fellow student-athletes from across the SEC to discuss issues related to student-athlete experience, student-athlete wellness, and to provide feedback on proposed rules governing the SEC and NCAA.

    The council consists of one male representative and one female representative from each of the SEC's 14 institutions. The goal of the Leadership Council is for student-athletes to serve as a conduit of communication from their teams to the conference office.

    Among the agenda items for the group is dinner and a conversation with Commissioner Greg Sankey, a review of NCAA and SEC legislative items, and the 28 student-athletes will also have an opportunity to engage with men's and women's basketball officials on rules of the game, student-athlete/referee interaction and careers in officiating. Keyon Dooling, former Missouri student-athlete, author, motivational speaker and former NBA player, will speak to the group on Saturday on the topic of mental wellness.

    I’m not optimistic about our WBK program and upcoming season. Hope I’m wrong.
