2021 WNBA DRAFT

DiJonai Carrington just told SicEm365Radio she and DiDi Richards "FaceTimed each other about 10,000 times and she kept telling me we were going to be drafted by the same team and I said no we're not, but now with her in New York and me in Connecticut we are very close!"

It would be wonderful if they were both on the same team, but very unlikely.

Fennelly is not the nice guy some portray him to be. Watch his angry screaming at the players on the sidelines

I'm assuming he must've done something in locker room that was over the top

Btw I coached girl/women distance runners at high level HS and advised them in college 10+ years

Imo it wouldn't be hard to make a fatal mistake coaching them, and often have no clue what you said wrong

Not a ton different from marriage but VERY REWARDING TOO

Fennelly, if he's truly lost them could be in a career killing downward spiral

But then I'm assuming only where he is not knowing his "crimes committed mentally vs his gals!?"

Ouch

Wait...wut? Kim screams at our players all of the time. It's part of the game.

And I'm not anti-Kim for those of you who will play that card. I think she is the greatest coach that this school has ever had.

This.
Have always admired Kim's...enthusiasm on the sidelines but could never really be able to read her lips. However, in the game against UConn I clearly heard her yell at Moon " what's your GD hurry Moon?!" After Ursin turned it over down the stretch.

Over the last few years, I've heard Mulkey shout at players many times during games. She's often quite audible even with a full crowd, even more do this past season with small or no crowds. IIRC, if you watch the title game vs ND in 2019 you can hear some of it.

NCAA TRANSFER NEWS
April 1, 2021

"For a second time in about three months, the NCAA is on the brink of granting all college athletes the ability to immediately transfer schools without penalty.

The Division I Council, the organization's primary legislative body made up mostly of school athletic administrators, met virtually Thursday to iron out details of the landmark legislation, which reverses a policy from the 1960s. The group is expected to meet April 15 to approve the measure, sources told Sports Illustrated. The new transfer legislation would go into effect immediately after it is approved by the NCAA Board of Governors, a meeting that could come soon after the D-I Council's decision.

Under current transfer rules, athletes in five sports, including football and men's and women's basketball, are ineligible in the first year they transfer unless they receive a waiver. The new rule would allow all athletes to move freely at least once, though it includes some stipulations.

.. Athletes must submit notification of transfer by certain dates to be eligible at their next location.
.. Fall and winter sport athletes would have to notify their schools by May 1, with an exception extending the date to July 1 for a end-of-the-year head coaching change or the non-renewal of scholarships.
Spring sport athletes would have until July 1.

However, Thursday's discussion among D-I Council members centered around making the notification dates flexible this year, sources told SI. Because of the timing of the decision and COVID-19, the fall and winter sports' notification date may be pushed deeper into the summer."

Goestenkors brings an incredible amount of experience to Lexington. The 2015 Women's Basketball Hall of Fame inductee has succeeded at every stop in her illustrious 30-plus year career, including head coaching positions at Duke and Texas, WNBA assistant coach stops with the Los Angeles Sparks and Indiana Fever and numerous head and assistant coach roles with USA Basketball.

Throughout her career, Goestenkors is a seven-time Atlantic Coast Conference Coach of the Year, 2003 (Naismith and WBCA) and 2007 (Associated Press) National Coach of the Year, advanced to 19 NCAA Tournaments with four Final Fours and two NCAA runner-up finishes, and won four gold medals with USA Basketball, including golds as an assistant coach in the 2004 and 2008 Olympics."

Kim should be very thankful for a contract like that

So if Kim wins the SEC regular & tourney and goes to Final 4. She'd make at least

400K Base
2,045,000 Incentive
100,000 SEC titles
179,000 FF appearance

Total = $2,724,000

This excludes the bottom portion.

Is that correct?

Did she make 2.2m or 3m at Baylor? Reports vary.

What I heard on tiger droppings she will make around
$2.5 minimum(your top 2 = $2,445,000) 1st season

Looks like inflation advances through 2030?

Perks galore too

LSU went all in, wants athletic department stimulated

I bet. Total spit in the face (although not very lady-like). I have to believe the "Ashley Joens Show" has something to do with it.

Former Player


Congrats to her. Sadly her 3rd school in 4 years but, closer to home.

On another note, unbeknownst to many of you, Mark Campbell (former associate HC at Oregon and the ONE person responsible for their player development) was just named HC at Sac State.

Oregon is imploding from within.......

Why not DiDi? Does KG have a better agent that goes for these deals? DiDi so much more charismatic!

She was picked #4. She will make the roster. Didi will likely be on the outside looking in when final rosters are named

3 FORMER BIG 12 PLAYERS transfer to Duke

Duke head coach Kara Lawson stated
"We wanted to be aggressive in going after players that fit how we want to play. There are a couple things that we value highly. One is versatility. The other is two-way players -- players that can make an impact on both ends. All of these players can do that. When you're building a team, you want to have as few weaknesses as possible. That's the goal. To have the versatility and to have players that will compete on both ends adds a lot to our team next season."

"All of these players are motivated to win. We have a group that not only wants to win but wants to have success with other players. That type of team mentality was important when we talked to each of these players. To have that buy-in is critical. We are excited to get them on campus this summer."

Yep, there's that small detail. All the WNBA chatter is Sabrina, Sabrina, Sabrina's back for the Liberty. And our girl has to face that. At least DiDi played a big part in denying her natty.

Amy Wright comes to OU after 10 seasons as an assistant at Texas A&M where she worked primarily with the Aggies' wings, oversaw in-bound plays and served as recruiting coordinator.

Wright joins the OU staff fresh off an historic year with the Aggies, who captured the program's first-ever SEC regular season title, rose to No. 2 in the AP poll for the highest ranking in program history and advanced to the NCAA Sweet 16. In 17 years of coaching, Wright has been a part of 15 postseason teams (11 NCAA tournaments) and has won five conference championships.

Wright helped the Aggies to eight NCAA Tournament appearances, four trips to the Sweet 16 and to the 2014 Elite Eight. Texas A&M also won the 2013 SEC Tournament with her on staff.
