Congrats to our "golden girls"! Ariel got a nice extended look at how the elite PGs play. Hopefully, she will be more conscientious about taking good care of the ball and not give in to her occasional impulse to try "no-chance" plays. With Carter back and Reynolds coming in, she just CAN'T afford to be casual about her MAIN job on the team.

Bashaara may not ever be a vocal leader on the court, but the rest of the team would do well to watch how she conducts herself and follow suit. If all of them played with her energy and determination all the time, the LVs will be hard to beat this year.
