Last I heard, she is supposed to enroll in January but won't play ball this year. I don't know if she is planning to practice with the team, but she may be allowed to work out under the supervision of the S&C staff. Given what she has been through lately, it is best that she takes time to recover physically and mentally and get accustomed to college academics and new surroundings. Hopefully, she will be in good enough condition and have the positive frame of mind to take over for Meighan when she leaves after this season.

I'm really looking forward to watching the live stream of the game tonight. I watched the men's scrimmage Saturday and thought they put on a pretty good production. This is mostly a great opportunity to see how ready Russell and Reynolds are to really help the team. It will also be interesting to see how the returnees look, in particular Massengale and Carter, although all of them had areas in which they needed to improve over last year's performances.

She'll be on campus in Dec and can practice with the team according to CHW media conference. Holly said she will be a student first and bball will come later.
