Vivian Gray is a volume shooter, but struggles mightily with length and athleticism. Taylen Collins flat out dominated Gray as did Lauren fields who dominated Lexi Gordon. Take those two away, and they're too easy to defend. This group is one tight knit group and it shows.
Not surprised that Carr transferred..she was going to transfer after stallings was let go but decided to give Gerlich a chance...and turns out she didn’t fit in with the offense. The offense runs through Vivian like it did here...which isn’t good basketball. Enjoyed Bryn when she was here, but the fact she’s an actual starter tells you the lack of talent Texas Tech has. Your last sentence about Vivian is spot on to a tee....family and comfort are two things she place a high premium on.
Cowgirls with a nice start to conference play and have a good chance at 5-0 before they have to play the top teams in conference. Hopefully confidence will hold for when they get the top 3 Big 12 thanks. Not sure the Big 12 will get more than 5 teams in the NCAA this year, but let's see how the year plays out.
Lexi had kind of an off shooting night. But she played really well otherwise.Let’s hope The off shooting night is just a one time blip on the radar. Lauren played well and made some shots. We need three consistent outside scoring threats. JMHO
Yes, Lexi didn't knock open 3's as she usually does, but as a freshman shows great promise. As mentioned earlier Ja'Mee with a career night, Taylen and Lauren all played very well on both ends of the floor. I was also impressed by Kassidy DeLapp, who came off the bench, and for the third game in a row made a significant contribution. I felt like we had a good scout, good game plan and good execution,. well done by both coaches and players.
