IUWBB off season notes


Recommended Posts

So far:

Penn announces she will transfer.

Ali Patberg is coming back for her repeat senior year. Great for us and if she wants that I guess great for her. I thought it might be time for her to try her luck in Europe or start a coaching career. But a voluntary return so great for both.

Moren is extended with a new contract at 800k per year plus incentives. I do not know if she gets a shoe contract, radio show money etc but total package with incentives should be around a million.

I will try and research some recruiting info and post.

Arizona gave Stanford all they could handle.

Stanford was actually quite lucky. In the first game, up one and with the ball the did not get a shot and then AZ missed two 3 ft shots at the buzzer. 
Very similar end in the final with AZ.

AZ was the team that beat us.

Congrats to Stanford. Sometimes it takes a little luck.

Thanks for the post. 
The only thing I know to add is that Hannah Noveroske is transferring. 
Nice person but I think she was just not getting the minutes she wanted at this level of play. Good luck to her.

Ariel has played even fewer minutes. I do not know her plans.

I was surprised to see Key Wharten transfer.

I am not aware of new recruits. Paige Price is already here

Ali, Berger, Chloe and hopefully Nichole will give us 4 nice guards. Grace Wagner may play a little more small forward- I do not know. Lex and Mac will be back with KB and Paige as depth, both I feel will play a lot.

We must shoot the 3 better. It hurt us all year.

I think the two FR guards will move ahead of Chloe.

Could be.

Chloe was like 1-19 with her three ball. We have to shoot better to reach that next level. 
I would love to have Ariel develop into a force.

Some recruiting info. I will try and find more.

Keyarah Berry, G, 5’11”. #79 and 147 recruit in nation by 2 services.

Kaitlin Peterson, G, 5’9”, 41 and 54 recruit

Paige Price, G, 6’2”, #3 international recruit. She has already logged a few end of game minutes for us. To me, we seem shallow at the C and F spots so I suspect she (and maybe G Grace Walgoner at 6’0”) may play some F.

I will try and figure out how many scholarships we have left and if we are looking at anyone in the transfer portal.

Hasn’t our recruiting generally been ticking up over the last 5 years?

Yes.. but then we've had some transfers in those recruits. At the same time, we've had big time transfers come in. Getting Patberg was just huge and Cardano was good, as well. Players like Gulbe and Paige (foreign) not a lot is known about them when they came here, but Gulbe cant flat out play. I think she avged 9p 10r in the tourney.

Grace Berger is a finalist (on the 20 man roster for a final 12) of the USA America team. Next practice for them is June 1 and the team named before June 11. 
I love watching Grace pull up and hit that mid range jump shot. 
Good luck girl. Pulling for you.

Hi all, more news.

Teri Moren has been named “court coach” of the U19 girls team for the world cup 2021.

I am not sure what “court coach” means exactly but it sounds like game coach. The person who develops the game plan for each opponent, determines starter and substitution patterns, in game adjustments, etc?

Knight once said he wanted to be remembered as being a coach who was worth 2-3 points on the bench.

In any event, a nice thing to add to your resume and should help with recruiting and program stature.

Congrats to Teri Moren.

Paige Price just named to the Australian under 19 FIBA roster. Practice starts June 25 and runs thru June 28. They will likely cut down to perhaps 12 but I do not know that.

Australia (and hopefully Paige) will then will play in Hungry August 7-15.

I think the dates are correct, but the only article I have seen was a bit confusing.

Grace Berger starts practice today on the USA team. They have 20 invitees and again I am guessing at the final squad size of say 12 to 15.

Grace Berger has made the final cut and is on the USA Americup team.

Naz Hillman of UMich and 2 Maryland players were also named. That makes 4 of 13 from our conference.

Head coach, I believe is Dawn Staley of South Carolina.

It looks like this team could play to 2022 if they win. Not sure of dates.

She ought to learn something from Staley.

Yes, and the continued play against top notch talent.

Paige is on one of the Australia teams. She is 6’2” and tho listed as a guard we are more short front court guys. The transfer of Jorie Allen and Patterson did not help.

I am really hopeful for a year two jump from Chloe McNeil (spelling? too lazy to look up. Never could spell). I do not know if any of our freshman will help in year one.

We need a big stepup in 3 point shot percentage.

Thank you for the updates. I really appreciate you doing this after Steve passed. He was such a great guy and a favorite HSN friend.

America is 3-0 with the championship game set for this Saturday, June 19. Grace is coming of the bench and contributing points, assists, and steals.

Unfortunately Paige has decided to leave Iu and return to Australia where she is going pro. We now have a scholarship open. I have not heard any rumors about a replacement. I think we are the most shallow at the 4 and 5 spots.

America wins gold going 6-0.

Grace averages 6 points and 3 1/2 rebounds per game. Im sure a great experience for life and for basketball.

I have not seen anything about what the ladies are up to for the summer. In Btown training, summer school, AAU ball somewhere else, etc.

Looking forward to football and then basketball.

Btw, we have several swimmers that are headed to the olympics!

Paige has turned pro and I wondered what we would do to replace her.

Caitlin Hose joins us as a grad transfer from Georgia.

Confusing to me - she is a 5’10” G who started only 13 games in 3 years in the SEC.

I would have felt we needed a big. Time will tell and obviously the coaches know more than I. Just fun to be the pretend GM.

A lot of transfers in the program every year it seems.

Yeah, but this year has been pretty extreme. I assume this is all about playing time? Weird that this is happening as the program is as successful as it's ever been. You'd think more players (especially those who have been there for a while) would want to enjoy the success. They lost to the National Champ runner ups and played them tough.

We play the 2020 champs (Stanford) in Florida in Nov.

Time will tell, but to me we are very thin at the big positions. Hannah transferred and Ariel is not developing into meaningful minutes. We lost Jorie Alllen before 2020 started, Daniel Patterson, and Page Price (both 6’2”) left after 2020.

We seem very guard heavy.
