re: Genuine Question

[quote]I will watch some LSU womens bball especially the big games or with a player like Caitlin Clark but that’s about it. Watching womens bball is like watching paint dry. Sorry.[/quote]I think this is the general consensus of most fans. I watched the regular season LSU-USC game and watched t...
[quote]Seems Clark is unstoppable again[/quote]USC held her to 30 points, 2 under her average. Clark scored above her 32 point average only 1 time in the NCAA tourney. All the other teams figured out a way to keep her at or below her average. We did not (she scored 41 on us). ...
[quote]But this is just an idiot trainer grasping at straws to save his own job.[/quote]and a trainer can certainly help, but he can't manufacture basketball skills. Perhaps he can fine-tune a few things, and improve conditioning, but it's 98% HVL's innate talent that makes the difference. That ...
[quote]Perhaps his shitty training routine failed her. That's how I will choose to see it. [/quote]no, training only has a minimal impact. A player's natural ability is what's vastly more important. ...

[quote]36 bench points for SC to zilch for Iowa. Hawkeyes now know how we feel.[/quote]Iowa is Clark and not much else. South Carolina has a lot of talented players. Bench domination by SC isn't surprising. ...

I noticed the same thing. She looked utterly exhausted after the first quarter. Nothing left in the tank, physically and mentally. ...

[quote]It is a sport that is losing white viewership. [/quote]good lord, race has nothing to do with it. In all sports, fans like dramatic matchups, but is has nothing to do with race. And the Bird/Magic thing was fantastic, but it started in college and then bled over to the NBA, where those ...

[quote]Clark is amazing[/quote]yes, she is, which we knew in advance.[quote]and Iowa is nothing without her[/quote]yep, and also we knew that in advance. That's why it was imperative to do anything and everything to try to slow her down (just a little) and make the others beat you. Hell, almos...

re: So what’s next for HVL

Posted by atltiger6487 on 4/5/24 at 2:02 pm
[quote]I hope she stays and spends lots of time with S & C staff. She handles the ball well, but has to be in tip top shape to get the speed and quickness to be able to compete at a high level. [/quote]S&C isn't the issue and it isn't a fix-all. ...

[quote]Mulkey criticism is stupid. Nobody was going to be successfully guarding Clark. [/quote]but we didn't try anything different until way too late. We didn't need to stop her - just slow her down a bit. Hell, 16 of Iowa's 37 opponents managed to hold her under 30 points. We gave up 41. ...
[quote]Our defensive plan looked a lot like HVL as our primary defensive worker. She did more than enough to put LSU in position to win. [/quote]really? Because Clark scored 41, which was 9 points above her season average. She also had 12 assists, which was 3 more than her average. Only 3 of Io...
[quote]I didn’t like Kim’s strategy to defend her. She didn’t see 1 dbl all night. After the first quarter when it was clear HVL had no chance, we should’ve been sending a dbl and living with the other players taking open shots[/quote]we just kept going with the same approach…. which wasn’t worki...
[quote]LSU should fire their 4 time national champion coach and hire you instead.[/quote]good lord, even great coaches make mistakes. ...
[quote]Just "who" has really stopped Clark this season??? Anyone to speak of.[/quote]once again, i NEVER said we should’ve been able to stop Clark. But we should’ve been able to slow her down. Hell, if we’re merely held her to her season average of 32 points, we win. But we let her utterly ...
[quote]I want to give HVL credit for the all out effort she put out defensively throughout the tournament but she was just so bad offensively that it overshadows that effort.[/quote]look, HVL was putting out max effort. No one doubts that. But it wasn't just her offense that was terrible again...
[quote]How many people stopped Pistol Pete when he was hot.Why does everyone need to blame someone.Clark was outstanding in that game no one would have stopped her[/quote]I never said we needed to STOP Clark. Just not let her score 41 points with 12 assists. (Fyi: she averaged 32 and 9 this ...
[quote]I think Clark is the type of player you just have to let her get hers because she's just going to[/quote]but we didn't just let Clark get hers, we let her get a lot more. She scored 9 more than her season average. So not only did our scheme not work, it was far worse than how other teams ...
[quote]And outside of Clark an embarrassing athletic display of basketball. It honestly looks like 12 year olds playing basketball. Slow in transition, bad shots, missed layups, players falling. Just a different game.[/quote]you’re not politically correct, but you’re accurate. A decent high s...
