Disparity: A Schooling For Lady Cards

If there was anything to be gained from the 93-65 beating the University of Louisville women suffered at the hands of top-ranked UConn on Monday, it is the realization that the Lady Cards have lots of room for improvement … and this is valuable knowledge for three sophomores and six promising freshmen.

No moral victories to be gained from a 28-point loss, even if it is to the No. 1 ranked team. Despite the obvious disparity in talent (Angel McCoughtry the exception), Sonja prefers an optimistic approach in her perspective on the game.

    Jeff Walz is definitely on the right track. UConn just has a few years head start in recruiting. Every one of those UConn players could start for any women’s team in the country.

    Walz has talent headed in over the next two years to add to what is already present in the freshman and sophomore classes. The question is this…are any of these girls Angel McCoughtry’s or Candyce Bingham’s-waiting-to-happen? I shudder to think about the final poutcome last night if we han’t had those two.

    The good news is that Chauntise returns next season. We will have an immovable force in the middle.

    Tise will be a to-go force for sure as long as she comes back healthy and strong. She’s been conditioning and losing some weight…all good things. Her outlook remains positive and she knows she’ll be counted on to bring leadership and scoring to next year’s version of the Cards.

    Meanwhile, the ’09 recruits are dong some amazing things. Nikki Burton in Charlotte, NC and Asia Taylor in Columbus, OH are having All-State types of years. Taylor, in particular, could be a game changer.
