Ranked teams are going to destroy the women Gophers this year
There's a facet missing on the team, evident when you watch for awhile imo

There are a lot facets missing on this team. It starts with communication at both ends of the floor and that's on the coaches.

Lindsay's good will is going to run out fast at this rate.

Another case of those "if she could only play for them" deals.
Great players have to be driven crazy sometimes by coaching those who can't do what they could.

Great players don't always make great coaches. I just hope Lindsay doesn't fall into that category. I'd like to believe that in her on going legacy, the best is yet to come.

It will hard for her to find players like her. Women who play basketball with a hockey player's mentality.

Well, it took OT against a bad Wisconsin team, but the Gophers got their first conference win. Hopefully this will give them a little spark and a little confidence. Right now this team just flat out can't shoot or play defense. You won't win many games being out shot 39% to 58%.

I hate to sound like a broken record, but the Gopher women don't even look capable of winning a conference game right now. That they are still playing at this level is on Lindsay. There is no improvement at all.

I was hoping allowing transfer players to go right away would help. Nope, hasn't happened.

No chemistry. No team defense. Can't shoot to save their lives. They pretty much get dominated on the boards. It's just ugly to watch.

The team that’s been the face of women’s college basketball since the mid-90s is currently undefeated (7-0), but has had their schedule ravaged by COVID-19, like most teams playing during a pandemic. So far, at least six of UConn’s games have been canceled or postponed.

However, the games they have played have been a showcase for Bueckers who was heralded as the recruit that could end their five-year national championship drought. Up in Storrs, Connecticut, five years is an eternity, as it’s the longest they’ve gone without winning a title since their first in 1995. (And that’s a great trivia question.)

Bueckers, a 5-11 point guard, had a ton of hype surrounding her entering college due to her extensive preps resume. So far, she’s been just as good, or better, than advertised.

She currently leads UConn in points (18.9), assists (5.1), steals (2.7), 3-point percentage (50%), and minutes (34.9).

Still waiting for that scoreboard to drop.

The Gophers pick up a road win at Nebraska. They finally held a team below 50% shooting and hit 47% on 3 pointers. Maybe things are slowly turning in the right direction.

How could anyone shoot 60% from 3-point range over the course of a season?!? That's not human.
