I hope we all understand that 3 of our last 4 games are against the three teams tied for second. Two on the road. They all have to believe if they can beat us it will likely give them second in conference outright and help their NCAA seeding. We do not have a cake walk.

Looking at schedule for Iowa State, TX, and WV. Appears that WV will likely finish in a tie for 2nd place with the winner of the ISU v TX game in Austin on March 2. The loser of that ISU v TX game will probably finish 4th, and be on track to play us in the semis of the Big 12 tourney.

This is why I was very conflicted about the celebration last night. Personally, I would have preferred waiting until the end of this 4-game run, and the end of the regular season, especially since we can still end up in a tie, and we have what I believe to be the toughest of the 4 games in Ames this Saturday. I have to believe that video of last night's festivities is being played in their locker room in Ames.

In regards to the celebration being held last night, I think that was the appropriate time to have it. First, because you always want to celebrate at home, after a game you've won. Despite being OSU, there's no guarantee BU wins that last game at home. Who's in a festive mood after a loss?

Secondly, though five days apart, having the victory celebration following the Family Night game might allow some of the parents who live away the opportunity to stay over and experience the festivities with their child. That would be special.

I understand fans' concern, but this is a veteran team who has been there, done that. As much as the upper classmen talk abou it never getting old, this celebration was mostly for those freshmen. The sophomores, juniors and seniors have bigger fish to fry.

Post-game comment from Freshman NaLyssa Smith
On how it feels to be a Big 12 champion
"It feels great. I've never cut a net before, so for my first time to be here, it's an honor. It's just a blessing."

I believe Coach Mulkey wanted to capture that feeling in all of her Freshmen players.
Feel that innermost drive to stay focused to cut
... a 2nd net (BIG 12 tournament)
... a 3rd net (NCAA regional)
... an ultimate 4th net (NCAA Championship)

The Freshmen have the talent. It boils down to focus while on the bench ... learning while you watch ... cheering on your team mates that are on the floor ... and being immediately ready to step in when you get the call to go into the game.

Perhaps sophomore DiDi Richards best summed up how it feels to be a Big 12 champion
"It's great. It never feels real until it really happens, so I love this feeling."

2019 WALK-ON

Feb 9, 2019

"Sissonville girls basketball standout Laila Arthur announced on social media Saturday that she has accepted a preferred walk-on invitation with the West Virginia University women's basketball team.

Arthur, who entered this past week as the leading scorer in both the Cardinal Conference and Kanawha Valley at 24.2 points per game, is a former Kanawha Valley Rookie of the Year. Last season she earned first-team honors on both the All-Kanawha Valley and Class AA All-State teams."

PLAYER LEAVING PROGRAM

"Kysre Gondrezick, a talented sophomore guard who was a transfer from Michigan, played in five games early in the season, scoring more than 15 points in three of those, but left the program for personal reasons shortly before Christmas and will not return."

Seems like a waste of her talent

Slimecap, do you know anything more on this?

Sounds like she needs someone to talk to her and tell where she may be headed and it ain't good? Idk

Yeah, scoring 15+ in 3 of 5 games early season with a brand new team is star potential that can't seem to stick with same team for whatever reason

Seems like that to me at least but idk

Shezam, wheels seem to be falling off up there lately. Losing to OU at home is bound to have messed with their heads at least a little. Losing at KSU I can see, but the Sooners? This year? On your own court? With second place on the line? Unbelievable.
