Dec 9, 2019

"For the second-consecutive week, Texas Tech's Brittany Brewer was named Big 12 Women's Basketball Player of the Week, while K-State forward Ayoka Lee collected her third-straight Freshman of the Week award.

Brewer contributed 22 points, 13 rebounds and five blocks for her fifth double-double in six games this season to help push Texas Tech to an 84-48 win over Ole Miss. The victory was the largest margin of victory in a Big 12/SEC Women's Challenge game and the first challenge win in TTU program history. It also marked Brewer's fourth game this season with 15+ points, 10+ rebounds and 5+ blocks. With 34 blocks and 5.67 blocks per game, she is the nation's leader in rejections. The honor is the third overall in Brewer's career.

Lee averaged a double-double and tied a single-game school record during K-State's games against Incarnate Word and Arkansas. For the week, she averaged 17.5 points on 65.4 percent shooting (17-of-26) and 11.0 rebounds in 25.5 minutes, while also blocking 3.5 shots. Lee tallied 20 points on 10-of-10 shooting while adding eight rebounds and six blocked shots in 22 minutes against IWU. The rookie was the ninth player in the history of the Big 12 to finish a game perfect from the field with 10 or more field goal attempts. At Arkansas, Lee collected her fourth double-double this season as she tallied 15 points on 7-of-16 shooting, a career-high 14 rebounds and one block."

OU guard Kamryn Lemon ties up the ball on the floor on Nov 14, 2019


DEFENSE
Changes to improve

"Last season, a defensive mistake would require time for Oklahoma's women's basketball team to sort out. Those moments occurred during a timeout, a chat with head coach Sherri Coale during a free throw, or maybe on players' way to the end of the bench. The Sooners are picking things up quicker now, but OU's defensive ghosts haven't completely been eradicated.

The good news, Coale says, is there's progress. Sophomore guard Ana Llanusa came into the season with the most potential as OU's perimeter stopper. She's averaged five steals so far.

"When they have a breakdown, they know what it was, why it happened," Coale said. "That didn't happen often last year. They were trying to find their way through it. Now, it's making it habitual."

Coale changed the direction of staff in the offseason, bringing on former Penn State head coach Coquese Washington and former Missouri State assistant Jackie Stiles. Stiles, though she set scoring records as a guard at Missouri State, is OU's defensive coach.

"She's a bulldog about whatever it is she's doing. She gets obsessed," Coale said. "Obviously her work ethic as a player, scoring as a Division I player [now] her job is defense so she's watching it. Every day after practice she's going through every rep with them and going through the crevices, going through it with them."

Per her twitter account, Jordyn's mother posted
"our son Dwayne passed away 11/30 at the young age of 24. Please respect our privacy at this time as we are not accepting calls." Dwayne's funeral service is today in California.

Sending silent prayers to the Oliver family during this difficult time.

Just a precaution guys - some of these schools have stairs that have to be climbed - or more concerning is the trip down the stairs.

In the twitter video that was posted of the girls running after practice, you can see LC walking by with no boot. So does anyone have a solid update on her timetable for returning? Is it going to be after Jan 1?? Still uncertain??

Only direct quote I have seen from Kim Mulkey
3 Dec 2019
With only three games on the schedule this month, and none against top 25 competition, Mulkey said she's inclined to let Cox continue to get back to 100-percent health.
"So we'll, I guess, get her ready for January," Mulkey said. "I don't anticipate playing her in December."

INTERVIEW
Head Coach Karen Aston

"There's probably not a freshman in the country that's going to tell you that they're happy," Aston said. "It's a hard transition, it's a really hard transition to make. And if they just stick it out, by the time they get to be the end of their sophomore year into their junior year, they're starting to figure not only the sport out and what what's expected at this level, but they're also starting to figure out like who they are and what they want."

Former UConn player Lexi Gordon


TRANSFER IN
Lexi Gordon

"Lady Raider junior Lexi Gordon made her first appearance in a Texas Tech uniform Sunday after transferring from UConn in the middle of last season. In her Tech debut, Gordon finished with 6 points & 4 rebounds."
- Texas Tech WBB website, 15 Dec 2019
*************
"Coming out of high school, Gordon was the No. 29th-ranked recruit in the country coming out of L.D. Bell High. She tallied 12 points and 13 rebounds in 30 games with UConn, but was limited after sustaining a leg injury.

Gordon adds more depth and experience to the Lady Raiders' loaded back court that averages 84.3 points toward a 6-0 overall record for the first time since the 2011-12 season when they won the first 14 games. For Lady Raiders coach Marlene Stollings, it's a welcomed reminder that her team is headed in the right direction during Year Two of the rebuild.

"Last year, we were teaching that all the time," she said. "What we see this year is that they're more confident and they believe that they can go out and do these things and have success. When you win, it gives it credibility, so I think that's really important during the process of building is that you can have success to give it credibility in where you're heading and what your culture's about."
