Information on how to aid the victims of the deadly tornado in Oklahoma
It just seems like this team plays a lot of lip service to the defense and rebounding priorities. Are these girls being taught proper techniques and working on their quickness and explosiveness? Because it doesn't look like it. Notre Dame and Connecticut takes semi athletic white girls and yet have 2 of the best team defenses in the country. The team is young and is dealing with injuries.. but they didn't seem like they were getting better on defense even before the injuries. Part of the problem is focus and intensity for a full 40 minutes... but a large part of it is each player being weak 1 on 1. Massengale gets beat consistently off the dribble and even Graves gets handled by more polished post players. Simmons is good on the ball but loses her mark constantly off the ball. It's one thing to say that your focus is on defense, it's another to show it on the court. With the athletes we have (injuries or not) this should not be the 8th best defense in the league.
