Who is the Hardin that is being talked about?

What about that JC player that is coming in this year...is she still around? or did we lose her?

Hardin is rated the #2 Juco prospect. She is like Webb. She can shoot the ball better and is WAY better defensively. She is not as good as a rebounder. Laquinta Jefferson is heading to the WNBA speculated that she didn't qualify (grades) or her family needs the money.

I have just confirmed that Hardin has signed!

re: Any Women's Basketball Recruiting news?


Jefferson, according to our very reliable staff, was announced as an early enrollee and would be in at mid-term. What's curious, she should have played since our SEC schedule had not started, but she didn't. I thought it was strange, but then again, it makes our staff seem a bit unreliable. Well, lo and behold, Laquita had to go to work early to earn money for her family. How much money do these WNBA chick really earn? Was LaQ ever enrolled at LSU, as announced? If not why was this in the press release?

Look..........I know how much money WBB makes for our coffers, so I am not trying to encourage biting the hand that feeds our programs. Not at all!!!

When they announced her commitment the plan was always for her to start playing next season. Stop trying to make something out of nothing like you always do.
From the Advocate in July:
quote:

Jefferson will enroll at LSU next spring by way of Jefferson (Mo.) Community College and will become eligible to compete during the 2013-14 season. She will have two years of eligibility remaining once she joins the Lady Tigers.

Its DaShawn Hardin

Due to NCAA rules and transferring, she wouldn't have been able to play for us this year!

RE: FORWARDS WE'RE IN THE LEAD FOR

can you give us a hint? are they both 2014s? how tall are they (roughly)? what region of the country? who are we fighting with for them? was one of them Azura Stephens? if so, the train's already left on that one.

### on another note, Harden went to OU her freshman year, then left and finished 2 year program at Johnson County CC. since she's coming straight from a "junior college", there is no waiting period required

re: Any Women's Basketball Recruiting news?


why has LSU never made a statement of any kind about Jefferson's NOT coming? they have a very bad habit of just "not reporting" negative news about ANY of our programs, recruiting, team/individual performances.

this affliction affects all quote "LSU media sources"----the Advocate, NOLA (Times-Pic), TV, etc. just omit negative facts about the sports.

case in point is the fact that our baseball team AND Bregman and Katz have been in what could be called a slump compared to the rest of their respective seasons---not a word about it. The first mention I saw/heard of any of it was during the Friday game against Florida, during which they actually showed a graphic detailing Katz's numbers for each month of the season, reflecting an obvious negative trend in the last 3 weeks.

2014 Get Another Guard Transfer---she doesn't sound too impressive I'm afraid. I honestly hope she proves me wrong

It's called depth. Not every player on the team has to be a star.

re: Any Women's Basketball Recruiting news?


My primary point in the previous post was we DESPERATELY need height for '14, and lots of it. Tank and Shelia will be our only front court players left going into '14. Neither of these young ladies is Sylvia Fowles, so it is impossible to get by with that as a front court and a buttload of guards.

True depth is a good thing to have, but we DO NOT need warm bodies. We need people who can make an impact---not expecting All-American here, just real, tangible contributions. Further, if we're gonna front-load the '14 class before we even get actual class of '14 players, we must focus on height, as I referenced above. As I said before, our current (2013) roster will go into '14 with 6 guards and 2 forwards. Now we've added another guard for '14.

I do like the fact, at this point at least, that she will be a junior so that if she doesn't work out well, we won't have used the scholly for a full 4 years.

My bottom line is I love my Lady Tigers dearly and have followed them since the inception of the program. I don't expect all of signees to be High School All Americans, but a few never hurt anybody. Further, I am one who believes that Nikki and Co. know what to do with talent, maybe a little bit better than they are a developing players.

That said, I bet the bunch of them is kicking themselves in the arse daily for letting Bianca and TP ride the pine so much last year. Van also wasted Bianca for 2 years---Adrienne and his '08 class (his first and best) were his babies, getting the huge bulk of PT.

I just pray that the next transfer they are gonna announce (Bethel's is still not even on the website) is a front court player with some sort of proven talent.

GEAUX LADY TIGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Plenty of teams have won without having an Olympian in the post.

Question: How exactly is that?

First of all, I'm referring to the NEXT announcement referenced in the article. Secondly, no matter what Nikki says (which, duh, is all going to be positive---she doesn't want to make herself and staff look bad)the young lady, even at 6', does not remotely answer my prayers for a TRUE front court player. Further Ms. Bethel didn't get PT on a mediocre WVU team; I'm not sure exactly what that my indicate, so I'll leave it to all of our imaginations. I guess I should have specified that it might require a little bit of size to fulfill my request.

Once again, I really, really hope she proves me wrong, and I will be the first to acknowledge and applaud her if she does.

GEAUX LADY TIGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The NEXT announcement had already happened when you posted that. Just fricking look it up.

I tried looking it up with no success; perhaps you could share your wisdom and guide me as to where I should look. I don't know what I'm supposed to Google or whatever, but I'm not finding anything recent except Harden, Hill, and Bethel.

Cannot be lazy and recruit. Cleo is more TJ than JJ. She would rather ride a motorcycle during the summer when most recruiting occurs than go to the various camps to see and find players. JC recruits and transfers are the lazy people recruits
