    I'm surprised by all the accolades from people on this board regarding Perez. I acknowledge her contributions, but seems like some people are trying to remember her as a great player. She wasn't, regardless of what her shooting percentage was. As an offensive player, Perez was often a reluctant shooter, shooting only when she was very open and not all the time when she was open. Also, she was a player who was one-dimensional on offense, someone who mostly shot threes and did not want to put the ball on the floor and drive to the hoop. (She defended well.) It's not like losing Wagner the year before. Nothing against Perez, but she can be easily replaced.

    I wasn’t implying that she was a great player but just citing her as an example of a JUCO transfer who did contribute and whose contributions were important with a depleted roster. JUCOs can be a big deal for small D1s but very rarely at the Power 5 level.

    Was she the one that was just standing in the corner of the back court during that key inbound play against Cincinnatti? That was a pivotal turning point in the game. Part of that is coaching. They should have emphasized for her to be aggressive to keep herself open for the inbound play. I am not making any excuses, but this is a learning year for the coaches as well as the team.

    She may not be the best player on the team, but she have contributed to the team a lot on her last season and had provided some key moments for the team. She is a role player who I would have loved to have another year of eligibility. She is no Carly Wagner, but a nice teammate who have provided height and good outside shooting. That is the drawback with JUCO players. Don't get me wrong, the Gophers were lucky to have her. I'd prefer 4 to 5 year players for developmental reasons.

    Hopefully, Coach Lindsay Whalen can score some key recruiting victories in the 2020 class.

    I’m going to guess Arizona for her.

    Ustby is looking like the last recruit standing between Whalen getting blanked on MN 2020 class. Wouldn’t be a great look for second class to already miss out on all local kids.
