Everyone wants to bash HVL, but Mikaylah Williams is too damn slow and has heavy feet. Watching her on defense is an atrocity. She needs to trim down. 5-10 lbs. Late in games her being out of shape effects her shot as well.

Edit: Let me add god awful hands to that as well. So many basketballs just slip out of her hands on the most basic passes.

1. She's a freshman and is going to leave LSU as one of the best women's college basketball players in the history of the program.

2. Melting over a college women's basketball game on super bowl Sunday is lame AF.

MK is still one of the better players on the team.


And yes I'll defend the freshmen before the senior college player

Do we have to swat at the ball or jump to block every shot?

Play defense with your feet!

I bet OP could stand to drop 10-15 lbs too.

MW as true freshman is one of the smoothest shooters I have ever seen in basketball. She will be a legend by the time she leaves here.

Complaining about Mikaylah when we have to play ADR who is as quick and coordinated as a parking lot bollard is a weird take.

We're extremely fortunate to have her.

Dude, we don't have one player on the men's team that can shoot better than her.

I was good until you disparaged an LSU team. They are all Tigers. You are either for us or you are Tiger bait

Why do we continue to bash players on our own team? Williams is an outstanding player as is HVL. Our six top players are all good players.

The fact that you decided to bash a freshman for bad defense (the hardest hurdle to get over) and defend the senior who can barely make a decent entry pass is a wild choice to make, bias much

Some would think HVL is the darling the way yall defend her

The whole team looks thicker and slower individually than at any point last year. Not sure if its muscle or bad body weight. Hard to tell in a baggy uniform but Angel looks to be labored running down the floor in transition significantly more than last year. Williams looks 10 to 12 pounds heavier than she did her senior year. They seem to be in decent shape, I don't necessarily think its cardio related but maybe a shift in off season strength program is needed.

Because it's what they do. And it's usually the same posters over and over again.

MW is as a polished frosh we will ever see. Her mid range J is straight butter. We lost to SC because they doubled her all night. Completely took her out of the game. Hi post low post. Mulkey has run our offense all year long through MW. MW’s J is better than Seimone’s
