Van Lith was just a terrible fit for this team

Terrible shooter and not a true point guard.

Should have gone after a true point to fill out the starting 5.

Lack of depth is the other issue, we literally have no bench.

Here poor shooting is being affected by her having to play PG! She needs to play without the ball in her hands.

This doesn’t make any sense

If we had a true point and we could rotate Flau’jae and Van Lith at the 2 to keep each fresh or ride the hot hand it’d be fine. Forcing either into a PG role just turns that player from being a good 2 that is comfortable into a bad 1.

HVL is a 2 and will never be a great PG, and there’s nothing wrong with that

She could be a fabulous fit if we find it.

Her poor shooting is because she is insecure about what she’s doing. I personally think she’s not aggressive enough. There is some stigma about her shooting too much. But teams are purposely playing off her because she’s looking to pass first always. Playing the PG position is all about creating space for others. She’s not taking what the defense gives her.

Just not a point, and they are forcing it on her, for some reason; evidently she might be the best we have…

She can be a good shooter, she's just being asked to be something she's not:

At this point let flauje run the point and Mikayla and HVL be of the off the ball guards. Mikaylah can create her own shots and HVL is a better shooter than flauje. This team will make a run come tournament time. I don’t get the panic mode

For one thing we are asking her to play out of position.

I 100% agree. She takes way too much heat and criticism. She is a good ball player. Let CKM fix all of this. The girls will be fine.

I want HVL to come back next year. I hope she and the others stay off the rant. Good lord.

We have a bench, Kim just refuses to play them. I can’t understand why Kent and Valez can’t get an opportunity when Lith and Poa lay an egg!
