Would be great indeed but all bets are off now with Czinano out for an extended period. Warnock will slide into the starting lineup and be effective, but their margin for error is down to zero now. Maybe this is Kate Martin's time to finally be a key cog now.https://www.collegesportsmadness.com/womens-basketball/bracketology
Still hovering at #4 seed for NCAA. Very early still but it would be great to seem them at hosting the first weekend again!!!
I was just pleasantly surprised when Kate was in at the beginning of the 4th quarter and made a nice defensive play. Maybe she will be good for some spot minutes when Warnock needs a break. I sure hope she can contribute.Kate was still wearing a huge brace yesterday.
Depends, If warnock plays 30 minutes like she did the last 10 minutes each game, we have an extremely dynamic product to put on the floor.4 of the next 5 on the road, at PSU, Michigan, home w/Nebraska, on the road Purdue then Maryland. I don't see anything easy there. Hopefully we can beat Nebraska at home, but I thought after MSU got hammered at home, yesterday would be fairly easy, but nope.
If I were implementing it, I don't think I'd actually change the forward rotation much. Right now, Warnock is averaging around 15 minutes per game, all as a forward. I'd like to see her at 25 minutes. I'd play her those additional 10 minutes at the 3 in place of Alexis/Gabbie/Tomi.I like your idea Braydon. But for that to happen I think Kate Martin and or Logan Cook would need to take a big step forward. Or it could hurt the rotation down low against a team like Maryland. The bench only scored 2 points last night against one of the poorer teams in the BIG.
IMO Maryland at Indiana is a much more losable game for Maryland than Maryland vs Iowa at Maryland. Apart from location, Indiana is a better athletic match for Maryland than Iowa.. . .
If Maryland is to lose another game in the regular season, I think Iowa is the only team to do it.
I agree the key to the remainder of the season is how much help the bench can provide. Last night would have been the perfect opportunity for the reserves to take some of the load off the starters but it didn't happen. Iowa's starters played 30-35 minutes, while the bench played only a total of 32 minutes and scored two points. Penn State's bench played 76 minutes and scored 21 points. Coach Bluder tried to substitute at the start of the 4th quarter with a 20 point lead but ended up having to put tired starters back in when Penn State (1-9 record) went on a run. That shouldn't have to happen with a much tougher road game coming up on Sunday at Michigan.I like your idea Braydon. But for that to happen I think Kate Martin and or Logan Cook would need to take a big step forward. Or it could hurt the rotation down low against a team like Maryland. The bench only scored 2 points last night against one of the poorer teams in the BIG.
I would defintely agree with your comments especially being out coached. But, with the exception Sevillian and Doyle the rest of the players played poorly IMO.At least Sevillian stepped up again. Without her it would have been as ugly as the UNI loss. Coach Jensen seemed to concede in the post game interview that Michigan out coached Iowa today.
