2022 RECRUITING
Grace VanSlooten

.. 6-2 forward is the No. 2-ranked player in Ohio
.. Rated 16th nationally among current juniors

During June 2021 (between the 1st and 2nd portions of her 2021 AAU spring-summer season schedule) VanSlooten and her parents will visit the campuses of as many universities as possible that she currently lists among her top 10 options: Arizona, Arizona State, Baylor, Clemson, Duke, Gonzaga, Michigan, North Carolina, Oregon, and UCLA.

VanSlooten said
"You get 5 official visits where they pay for everything, like your flight, hotel, and all of that. Then, you can also take as many unofficial visits as you want at your own expense. ... We're going to visit as many schools as we can as soon as it opens."

At this juncture, VanSlooten said she is not leaning toward any particular school within her top 10, nor has she set a deadline for herself to choose.

"I'm just kind of going with the flow," Van Slooten said. "I don't really have a set plan."

For those of you that don't know Barbara, she was Kim Mulkeys Administrative Assistant. A lady that handled her position with grace, a pleasant tone and a positive attitude. She would always return your call and was a pleasure to deal with. I will miss talking with her. Enjoy your retirement Barbara.

DFW Bill nailed it with this post.
He gave me Barbara Spitzer's Baylor number so that I could get needed Lady Bear information on one of my semi-yearly visits to Waco sometime back and she was not only helpful, she was as gracious as a Southern Lady could be, just wonderful. Her retirement is deserved, but she will be sorely missed.

"I chose the University of Washington because of the endless opportunities academically and athletically. I believe in the vision Coach Langley and her amazing staff have for the future of the team. UW and the city of Seattle scenery is absolutely beautiful. I knew this would be a great place to call home.

ASSISTANT COACH EXIT
Chris Carr

Kansas State's program altered its coaching staff - and it includes the departure of an assistant. Chris Carr, who joined head coach Jeff Mittie's staff prior to the 2016-17 season, no longer is part of the program, a K-State spokesman confirmed to The Mercury.

His departure means the Wildcats went from two Carrs to zero in barely a month. Carr's daughter, Chrissy Carr, earned All-Big 12 honorable mention honors last season as the Wildcats' second-leading scorer (15.2 points per game). She announced last month she was entering the transfer portal. Carr committed to Syracuse on May 13, 2021.

This is the type of transfer we need to be seeing! Depth for next season and someone we can develop for three years?
