Very good honest post. I like to hear from people who SEE the game and just don’t watch the game.More Smith. Less Powell. This team isn’t efficient so it needs more set plays. In this game what would the shooting percentage be on kick out 3s? I think high. Smith looks to kick or score. Powell is going to the basket no matter what. Scalia is a shooter but not a creater. A step back 3 is not her shot. A kick out 3 is. The post defense is bad because the rotation is bad. There needs to be more week side help. Smaller guards need to box out. Scalia positions decent on rebounds, Powell does not. Half of rebounding is anticipating where the ball will come off the rim.
I coach high school. As an assistant to a great head coach. I’m not taking any credit but the team I coach for has multiple defenses. Minnesota does not. I have cut Whalen some slack because I absolutely idolize her, but this team need something more. I believe it’s a defensive assistant coach to help Whalen.
This can not be their best offense!!
There will never be a bigger Gopher fan then me, but I need more I can’t watch this. Losing is one thing not competing is another.
