re: LSU Coach Kim Mulkey lands Former 5-Star Angel Reese Via Transfer Portal - lsualum96
[quote]From what I read, Pointer was good in college but she was not big enough to compete in WNBA AND Alfuwa just wasn't polished enough....there were better players ahead of her. I loved watching them at LSU.[/quote] Pointer is more than big enough to compete in the WNBA. Destini Henderson, who...

re: Las Vegas Aces Waive Both Khayla Pointer and Faustine Aifuwa. - lsualum96
Khayla wasn’t waived because she’s undersized. There are a number of guards shorter than her in the league. She was waived because of the aforementioned problem with the salary cap. This happens every year in the WNBA. She’ll eventually land with a team that needs guard help....

re: WBB NEWS: Maryland's All-American Angel Reese signs with LSU - lsualum96
Here’s an interesting tidbit………. With the incoming freshmen class as well as transfers, LSU now has five players who were ranked as 5 star recruits and in the ESPN top 50, during their HS years…… Hannah Gusters Alexis Morris Kateri Poole Flau’je Johnson Angel Reese Wow!!!! ...

re: LSU Coach Kim Mulkey lands Former 5-Star Angel Reese Via Transfer Portal - lsualum96
Yes, they were waived. But it wasn't because they weren't good. IT's because there just aren't many roster spots in the WNBA. So, every year you end up with players drafted, even in the top 15, that get waived. Here's a story explaining the situation............... [link=(https://www.courant.com/...

[quote]I’m sure they would, but Dawn Staley’s comments regarding Kim Mulkey show me that she’s scared of Mulkey, and she should be, in my opinion. Her days of bullying the SEC are coming to an end, and it will be nice to watch her get out coached when the talent level is more even.[/quote] I'm no...

We're certainly on a roll and if we can manage to pull in the nation's best recruit in 2023, Mikaylah Williams from Bossier City, then we're REALLY gonna be rolling!! [link=(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LD08rRErn4Y)]Mikaylah Williams Mixtape![/link] :geauxtigers:...

LSU Coach Kim Mulkey lands Former 5-Star Angel Reese Via Transfer Portal - lsualum96
This is such a huge recruiting coup, I feel it deserves it's own thread. Coach Mulkey has been tearing it up on the recruiting trail with her incoming freshmen class as well as transfers via the transfer portal. The biggest being 6'3" Angel Reese, who is a third team all american (as a sophomor...

re: WBB lands Kateri Poole, Ladazhia Williams and Jasmine Carson - lsualum96
[quote]I have a lot of confidence in Coach Mulkey’s “big picture” vision and her ability as a recruiting strategist. It’s like playing chess and looking ahead. I don’t think Kim would have taken the chance of losing Martinez if she wasn’t already certain she had reeled in Reese. [/quote] I ...

re: WBB lands Kateri Poole, Ladazhia Williams and Jasmine Carson - lsualum96
Hey y'all, just found out this is a "dead week" for recruiting in the NCAA. So this may be why we're seeing people unfollowing recruits on social media. Coaches cannot participate in any recruiting activities including contacts, evaluations, visits, camps, phone calls, texts, mailings or social medi...

[quote]Okay. I see it now. I was getting a blank profile picture. Next year’s team is starting to take shape. Here is my opinion on the starters. I am of course no expert. 1. Kateri Poole is your starting PG unless Kim lands someone better. I don’t see Ware ever playing a key role for Kim Mulk...

[quote] What about Flauje?[/quote] I just don't see her starting, with the talent we have at the two guard (Morris and Poa), and I don't see her as a natural point guard. I think she'll be coming off the bench. Of course, she'd be in that first group off the bench. Right now, this team, with Ree...

re: WBB lands Kateri Poole, Ladazhia Williams and Jasmine Carson - lsualum96
IF we get Reese, I don't think losing Martinez hurts quite as much because Williams can play the four and let Gusters play the five. That's still gonna be an awesome starting five.......... Williams Reese Morris Gusters Ware With Poa more than likely coming off the bench with Payne and Car...

Only reason I could possibly fathom Martinez going back out and taking visits, is that Reese has indicated she’s coming to LSU. Otherwise, it doesn’t make sense....

Shematsi graduated and the other three were expendable, with the players that are coming in via the portal and the recruiting class. I'm glad we're keeping Payne and Ware, as both will probably be big contributors next season....
