I watched the ISU - Miami game. Mompremier was a disappointment. The Clones are considerably better this year (obviously) and I'm glad because I've rooted for them for years.

I always found Beatrice to be overrated. I wish her well, but I call it like I see it. She knew she would not play with Brown and Cox in front of her. Can't blame her for transferrring.

She did not transfer by choice.

bummer about this is that we needed to have SC rated hi for our SOS.

This series continues to give Texas the toughest matchup, or the top women's team from the previous year in the SEC. Baylor gets the second or third. The year we got Kentucky, we played in Icy Arlington.

We should be playing Miss State at home...

Wish we were

not her choice? I don't remember anyone at the time mentioning that...it seems we were all disappointed we would not have her as depth for Brown and Cox?

Beatrice was going to be cut so they asked her to transfer. Attitude and chemistry problems. This has been mentioned on this board multiple times.

I just do not remember it being spun that way...she wanted more playing time and to be the focus...play the 4 while Brown played the 5...was not going to happen when they got Cox...Cox just much better skill set for 4. Also some talk of homesick...I know we were all disappointed because of the depth problems it created. Brown and Cox had to play to much, wore Brown down by end of year.

I tried to search back and had trouble with the searches, what I did see seem to support her decision not ours. of course not denying it could have happened just as you say, just never saw it posted like that...I could have missed it.

I do remember a tweet by Beatrice, herself, that seemed, at the time, to confirm mimi's stated take....

I do remember there being some discussion on the boards that she was asked to leave. From what I recall, it was not over any major misdeeds, but had a lot to do with attitude and not contributing to team morale (for instance, by cheering on players from the bench).

Absolutely none of that was in public releases, and I do not claim to have any personal knowledge. I just do remember that it was discussed here. I will see if I can find it later.

Impressive victory by Iowa State over Miami for WNIT championship. They might be the third best team in the Big 12 this year.

I saw them play Miami also and was impressed. I think they may be the second best TEAM in the conference; whether that is enough to overcome the talent deficit vs UT time will tell.

I too was disappointed when mompremier left. I thought she wanted playing time as a four not a five.

When she committed to Baylor out of high school, playing 4 with Brown playing 5 was what she was hoping for. Did not work out that way.

Even though ISU is showing improvement and they have very good freshman player in Joens, I believe the order of finish in the conference will be BU, then UT and WVU vying for second and ISU at 4th. The rest will be a dog fight but OU will probably be 5th.

Not really Big 12 related, but does anyone know if Nancy Mulkey is injured? She transferred fron OU to Rice and sat out last year. She is on roster but has not played this year.

Hard to really tell, but does it look like her right arm is in a sling?

I had heard she had a problem with her arm and has been in the sling for a while. No idea what's wrong.

Nancy broke her wrist and had surgery. Will likely miss this season depending on her recovery.

Thanks for the info. That is too bad for Rice.

You may be right. I usually have a difficult time placing West Virginia. OU is a very interesting case. Seven freshmen players only one of which is top tier ranked, but some of these players will turn out to be excellent. Old familiar veteran players gone. Who knows what will happen.

Doesn't WVU have that All Big 12 guard returning from injury this year?

That is a substantial upgrade in academics.

Oklahoma lost to UAB today by 5. Not a good result for Miss Coale.

Unfortunate as one of the Ogwumike sisters is a senior. Rice could've made some noise with both sisters + Mulkey on the court. She looks like she's added some mass to her 6'9 frame which is a good thing. Rice played both A&M and UCLA really close.
