"Teeth. That's it bam that's simple it doesn't have to take time the other thing. I wanna talk about morning routines to you. Don't have to do the same exact thing. You gotta give yourself some wiggle room because everybody's going to be different on this. Some people love to do exactly the same thing every day all the time and they're very comfortable with that. If you're that person perfect do that but if you're a person that catches your self struggling to stick to one thing every single day the same thing then you switch things up or you do it a different way. I love to meditate. That doesn't mean. I meditate single day of my life or that i meditate in the same way every day of my life. Sometimes i'll sit in a different room. Sometimes i'll go on youtube. And i'll look up a new meditation. Sometimes i'll listen to something completely. Different or do visualization or. I'll do walking meditation. Because i can only do the same thing for so long so for me. It's like batches you know like. I'll have a few months that i do this. One thing like podcasting. I'm sure you guys are the same way like all few months that all i do is listen to podcasts constantly. Podcasts all the time. And then i kinda get out of that phase and it'll be audiobooks in all be reading books constantly all the time and then on grew out of that. It'll be youtube. And i'll be watching videos all the time you know so you have to have different things to plug in. It doesn't have to be routine. Doesn't mean the exact same thing all the time. It means that you have a routine that you're going to do something intentionally to care for yourself and put yourself in a good mind space. That's the routine. It's not about the specific actions. It's just that you have a routine of doing things to be happy healthy and make yourself a better human and to be more productive in your life. Okay let's get to these twelve things twelve morning routine ideas again. Don't blow this out of proportion. Don't think you have to do all twelve of these. I'm saying pick two maybe three. That's all in. None of these should be more than ten to fifteen minutes they can if you're at a different place if you've been practicing longer and you're more disciplined in. You can do longer. Like i promise you when i started morning routine thing was probably three minutes now. I can do more stuff. Because i'm more disciplined. I've been doing it longer. I have more practice. So but don't blow this out of proportion and think that you've got to do each of these things for an hour apiece. No dude no do each of these things for a few minutes again. The key is that you are consistent. It's not how long you do it. You can build on. How long you do it once you get better at it and more comfortable doing it but in the beginning keep it small bite sized pieces because i want you to do it consistently so make it make it fast make it easy twelve.

Thousand Two hundred and fifteen thousand and it's the first time ever the average player compensation is going to be in six figures and then working moms players are going to receive full salary while on maternity leave. There's a new annual childcare stipend player experience individual hotel rooms for every player. How about that? Can you imagine? Nba guys shared a hotel room sharing a suite. No I mean just small mandatory extra legroom seats on flights plus more flexibility than ever before order charters when necessary offseason job opportunities with league partners as alternative option to overseas so they just did so many different things including new mental health resources and she has a great breakdown on all of that. So I WANNA say my hat off to her her sister. Neka Lady Clarendon also in leadership positions and leadership matters Cathy Engelbert takes over for the WNBA and understood what needed to happen and negotiated with her group along with the Players Association. And the people you've mentioned but I think this is also a message to Fans College Fans PAC twelve fans. You've got to support these teams. You've got to get out and buy tickets. You've got to watch them. You gotTA support the companies that support them. Because you can't you know increase what you're spending if people aren't spending money on the WNBA you gotta get out there and get after it and support Kelsey plum. She plays at Vegas. Do everything you can because when you watch college basketball get excited you watch the WNBA. Watch some of the people that you've followed throughout their four years. It's amazing how good the basketball is. It's a phenomenal product. And this is again just a huge step in the right direction. And I'm I'm I'm excited about it. We're GONNA talk more about this. I think again with Rebecca Lobo who is our guest next week on the podcast and again as you mentioned Mary. She's calling that the day night game on ESPN between Oregon and Stanford that's at six o'clock and it's It's GonNa be fun before we go. You have any.

"Just not just the celebration after but like just even the Games were fun. You know But afterwards I mean Gosh you know how forces it's the total you know exhilaration you complete high and then you know and then the opposite so You know I always tell our team we never get to. Don't don't ever get too high when you win. Don't ever get to you. Never been as you think you are when you win. And you're as you think when you lose and you know we just they even killed here at issue but no it was. It felt like March Ashley. It's just like Martin this that that was it was that kind of jubilation and enjoy and and just you know wow you know we did it and then things came together. You know you know actually like we expected. We wanted them to so. I think I think you know after Oregon. It was just like. Oh my gosh you know. What an amazing accomplishment and then to have to turn around and play the number three team in the country you know you didn't really have you know I literally went back home and you know got right back to it and then after that win. I think that was when you could really just enjoy you. Know a great weekend and and The accomplishment that your team had and and Yeah you know you just you think about you. Think about former players you hear from you. Think about how you're moving fans. It's the eight around in charge to court and all your donors that gives you money you know. Sometimes you feel like men are we letting them down. You know but I think one thing So I just felt preach to you know to to people I feel like you know I don't know this for all their everything they pour into our program. I just feel like okay. You know we we made people happy you know but yeah we made ourselves happy too. Don't get me wrong but it was. Yeah just that that part you really soak in. You know you're really soaking you know 'cause it's everything is you know relationships and and how we feel and stuff you know the the success thing. That's all fleeting. So we we did. I did really soak that up in an embrace out a little bit more than I normally do so. Yeah Hey for you could work life balance. Very Good Charlie. That's awesome. I'm going on my confessions. I don't know why you guys did. We love it. I know I don't do that with anybody out. So something special about you One of the real tangible benefits of when in those two games as Charlie cream comes out with Khaldi and you go from dreaded tend to lake fantastic five. I mean that's a that's quite a weekend. Yeah I think we're getting into that period. Let's face it in and you guys know I mean the pre season you know we don't really know right like probably played that many good teams and and you know I always Kinda tell everybody up contenders from the pretenders are gonNA start separating by you know late January early February. You know it's GonNa. It's GONNA start sorting itself out and I still think there's you know a good month here you know where I mean clearly. We have to finish. Everybody needs to finish strong and continue to get better through February. But I feel like you know especially the power five conferences where you're just it is just a grind and you're playing great teams weekend and week out. You know I mean you know the great teams finding a way to win. You don't have that level of consistency and we still have a good one to know that. Is I think you guys agree? Yeah and I think and that to me and we'll we'll let you. You've been so generous with your time. And we we really appreciate this but I I think that's one of the biggest things you talk about. How felt like March winning those games in the elation that you guys had and obviously now the task is to regroup refocus sort of forget about that but also take some whatever you're able to learn and move forward you've got to Washington school. Is this weekend on the road and and you said something that you know the teams you fear. The most are the ones that play hard so just tell. Tell me what you've seen from Washington so far this year. That indicates that you know it's obviously going to take another total team effort on Friday. Yeah well there. I mean both Washington Washington state. I mean they they. We didn't get to play wash last year. That was the Snow Day. but You know they're both. I mean you know that's a perennial top programme right. I grew up through that program. That was where I was a graduate. That we outgrew our men. There it's just a great basketball talented program. Jody's CRISCO fantastic job. And she continues to bring in more and more talent But yeah they play hard like both these teams especially when they're at home they just have great energy And you know Washington you know. They're surprised who change and all different defenses and then you know they have one of the best. Scores Conference in Washington State has to the rescuers conference. And you know. They've got side than they've ever civility Yeah I mean I was just kind of going back and forth one of our signees You know about like you know. Hey these games this week. We'll be every bit as tough like like take and she's like yeah. I I have you know we were just kind of going back and forth on that because I'm trying to get her ready right You know it's like yeah. That was great but trust me. We're going to have to play every bit as hard as well to to keep winning in this conference 'cause You know all all teams are very well. Coached and all teams have the talent to beat the teams. They just do you know. And that hasn't always been the case but it is this year in my opinion. Yeah no it's it's that's what makes you know it's so fun for us and obviously a lot of work for for you and your program. So Washington. Friday at seven o'clock in Washington state Sunday at noon. Both of those Games are on the PAC twelve network coach. I can't tell you enough for thank you for the time and the honesty we always you. Just you always bring it and we we appreciate you. Tell Quinn that I'll text him this weekend. If you guys get another sweeps on around. I'm on my own this weekend. Funny but thank you guys. I really appreciate you appreciate the PAC twelve network and everything you do for all of us so thank you go devils but there is something about you marry that that gets people to be honest and tell the truth especially Charlie Turner Thorne and I. I love that she said I don't know what it is. But every time she comes on this podcast she ends of saying something. Just love watching her coach. It's inspiring she's awesome by the way we should mention that udub. Asu Game on Friday. Pac twelve network Kelsey plum. The Great Kelsey plan will be making her PAC twelve network debut. She's calling the game alongside our good friend. Guy Haberman so looking forward to the crowds are going to be super pump to welcome her back So okay let's there's a few things that we need to to mention and obviously again. There's there was this. Podcast could be three hours long. But we'll we'll try to keep it as as tight as possible that asu performance this weekend it overshadowed a Lotta storylines and not just in the PAC twelve but nationally I think I mentioned earlier. It's the first time ever that the top three ranked teams went down. In the same week Baylor ended Yukon. Ninety eight game home winning streak on Thursday and that was you know again that was just like a little asterix to the weekend and then you look at the. Ap Number One two three nine ten eleven and twelve all last this past week it's been just completely unpredictable. South Carolina is the fourth different team to hold the top spot in the people. This season and Mary there has never ever ever been five different number. One teams in the same year since it became a riders pool. And obviously I I. I would imagine that's GonNa Happen because we're sitting here in January. So what what does all that mean? Does this feel different than than other years? Oh I don't think there's any doubt about it and it feels different in in in our conference. It feels different nationally. I love the attention that the PAC twelve is getting and that people recognize. It's the best conference in the country. You know during the Games I've got Rebecca Lobo texting me in different people from ESPN and different writers. And it is this for real. What's happening I mean? People is of women's basketball are coming out west and realizing that it's it's the same as Watson Yukon. It's as Tennessee South Carolina Baylor. So it I just feel like the women's basketball country has gotten a lot bigger. Yeah we're being included does nice it is nice and Rebecca Lobo. I'm glad you mentioned her. Because you booked. Her is our guest next week on the podcasts which she herself she said yes. I will cost you booked herself either way. She's GonNa be on Pod next week which is going to be awesome. A ten to talk to her about I. We gotTA talk about Little more on on the Arizona Oregon game. 'cause I'm I'm watching that game on Sunday and I'm thinking wow. I'm looking at the box score. They've really lock to bring down. She had six point seven for the fourth quarter and literally as I'm thinking about that Amery Anderson who's calling the game for us texts me and says hey just a heads up keep an eye on triple double number twenty two. I'm thinking what's I. Eight rebounds and eight assists is what Sabrina had at the time and she said you know the points always come and she ended up being exactly right. I mean she bring ended up finishing with her twenty second career triple double and the best part was the video that went completely viral afterwards. It was when she came over to do the post game interview which she had no idea that she had a triple double. And she's going. Tennessee's what are you kidding? And the best part is that the end and if you watch it all the way the end she looks at the box score and she says six turnovers and hands it back Tamarins. So that's not okay. It doesn't even count. Yeah in the six turnovers though and a the retweets Lebron respond. Not just re tweet with comment queen. Sabrina yeah her following his amazing. But I'll tell you what it's GonNa be a buzzsaw. This weekend when Count Stamford and Thursday. Night it.

"You know we kinda one of our little monikers. I is Cheetah Girls. Because we're we're kind of playing small ball we're fast and we just you know we wanNA outworked teams and we gotta we gotta be gotTA play fast so. I had a little funny about because you know I might have had my underwear on well. Hey I was underwear. I've known that for a long time. Yeah moving on Charlie. I know I I. I texted this to after both games. Is it an upset when Arizona State wins? Yeah you know it's funny. Mel Greenberg called me Sunday night. And you guys know mail it was just funny. He was you know On his way in between games and just say while you may create more work for me he goes. I don't consider you guys an unranked team. Yep You know and so you know Mary I mean I think obviously you know based on you know this season where both teams were at. You know I guess you could look at it as that but You know we're we're pretty top team. You know we're really good and we're we're usually really good. Every year. We have that level of consistency. Even when we've had you know we lost eighty eighty five percent of our scoring now here. Which is you know just to remind everybody why we didn't come out on dates like you know you know guns blazing and you know just killing it. We we had people injured and we had a lot a lot of newness and I feel like we're finally you know we're just growing and and you know people are understanding you know something son away and and you know getting tougher and and and that you know really showed up last weekend and so i. I appreciate that question Mary because I do think That you know we are you know consistently one of the top programs in the country and You know we're certainly not an easy out for usually you know it's when we have these types of matchup you know. Usually people will be like. Oh you know this is a great match up not like. Oh you know what they're gonNa do to possibly win this game and I have felt a little more that way and I'm like good. I'm glad you know. Go ahead and look at it that way. It's it's all good and and you know but I understand it too because you know this has been a big transition with all the newness this year and and also just working through players not not being fully healthy so I get it you know and and It doesn't really matter to me what they call it. You know. I'm just glad we want and we just WanNa keep winning while sat and you mentioned some of the the new pieces. And we haven't talked about her yet because she's the P- actual player of the week and the ESPN W national player of the week. Tv It's happily Grad transfer from USC. Obviously I had a big weekend and and came up big and both of those games. Think coach it's hard to know. Sometimes how Grad transfers will work out. You know what their skill set is but how they can adjust and fit into the dynamic of of your program and your culture after playing somewhere else is kind of an unknown so just can you give us a sense of how tap elise fit in. And what did you see from her this weekend? That put a smile on your face. Yeah you know she. She's just really growing. You know and and every bit as a person As as a As a like a winner champion you know as much as just a basketball player. I mean just her mindset and you know clearly I mean you know something like. We really need her if we needed her this year. And so you know we supported. Us reported the her. And it's just been you know a great combination You know she the biggest thing that we looked at before we Recruited her invited into our program. Was her character. You know she a good person. Is she going to embrace our culture and it didn't take very long to figure out you know? We felt really good about it. And I think that you know that for us is the biggest thing and then when when she do that you know I do think our players are able to get to their best. You know I think are able to really be all they can be. You know as long as they you know. Stay true to like who we are. And you know the whole like you alluded to Mary. You know positively that toughness you know being you know being A total team player know and and embracing a great work ethic. You know just things like that. And she's She's been fantastic and she's clearly you know she was one of the top out of high school and you know you know when you see. They had a lot of other players to you. Know so it's just been Really the perfect fit you know for and for us and and I cannot be happier for her because she is. She's fun she's funny. She's a great great person. You know she has really good character and you you know she's she can get a lot better too. I mean you know. She's still working on the consistency with some of her habits. So that's exciting. Charlie let's just broaden it out the Arizona road trip Asu. I mean we all this all season law of talk so much about the trip to Oregon but you know Oregon state played at at Tucson Arizona on on Friday night and worked real hard chason area round and trying to win that ballgame. It took a big effort from them. This is a this is as tough road trip as there is in the country. Playing the two of you as great as Arizona Arizona State play defense. How much does that help your program that when teams come on this trip they gotta prepare for two teams in a big time way? Yeah that that that's a That's something I have been talking about a lot because you know these crosstown rivalries. I mean people get so you know he did and like Oh my God and you know and it's like my first response is. It is so awesome that you of a has gotten so good because you know we played them twice but we have sixteen plus other games and for that exact reason. Mary from people when we go on the road at home and I think you guys know I mean you know prior you know you know not too long ago. I mean they Tara you know Scott. They were arresting top player. That's right yeah. When they would they would not even play the barely in games you know and so now it's just such it's so pages for us to have such a strong travel partner. You know where you know people you know not even just at home but when we're on the road you're right there's no you know I mean. Gosh there's no easy teams in this conference period but yeah it's fantastic. I was shopping my last minute Christmas shopping right. So you know. And it's like twenty third so I start my shopping for family and I have my boards of the mall. 'cause you know they're they're all older now says like. Mom JESSICA SHOPPING. That cool okay.

Yeah good for you as you should have and you mentioned a trailer you you poor and your staff pour so much into this.

"Bail us out the one of the week. Charlie Turner Thorne head coach at Asu. Welcome to the PODCAST. First of all. Congratulations on just an absolutely epic weekend. How are you feeling today I'm still feeling pretty good. Thank you so much. Yeah I don't know about women of the week but Yeah team in the staff. I mean we just you know came together and played some pretty good basketball so not a bad weekend. Not a bad weekend. We'll take that any any day of the week. How many people have you heard from? Your phone has been blowing up. How many people have you heard from in the last four days? Okay so you WanNa hear like kind of a funny story right so I. I had two hundred text messages. Actually the Oregon win and the M- you know so I go home and I'm I'm you know breaking that game down and I'm starting Oregon State so Mary Quinn my son Quinn he guy. So he's so he he basically returned probably over one hundred fifty Texas. I read them off while I'm watching film so we have like. This is really bad. People are seeing that kind of had a default message from personalized ones. And you know 'cause I always really try to get back to everybody always 'cause I appreciate it but you know I didn't have time so then you know they're kind of coming through on Saturday. Okay so did the best I could. You know preparing preparing and then Sunday well. Ditto so But it was funny because I was leaving Sunday and I gave me ridden was in the training room and I gave her a hug and said yeah. You know I might might not even watch film tonight. I might just you know I said but I think I'm to get another two hundred text messages So I'll probably ask Clinton to help me again so sure enough. We're watching the staffer CAL game. Okay and Quinto helping me and a message comes in from James Dad. Thane High Quinn. How your mom I said. Great Gobs freaked him out he's like mom anyway Yes you know which were so amazing that you know 'cause I'm always not the best I'm like in my little bubble and I don't always follow everybody so it was just so You know I was really grateful for people who reached out and you know You know said Great Job. You know for our team and stuff so it was fun. Shirley my Your tax in your tweets your tweet where you talked about the designer suit our signs and the professional blow out of your hair dollar signs that got twenty six thousand views as of last night But what struck me about as I read responses? I kinda scroll down. Were former players of years from northern Arizona former players of years from from Santa Clara and it really just sort of blew it up even more from me that the family of Charlie Turner. Thorne is is large or old Mary. Oh Yeah we we all know that. But yeah you know I mean. Sometimes it's it's so cool that is truly one of the coolest things when you know. Sometimes you have one of these you know you have an amazing weekend or you have a huge win and you know your your basketball family In particular because you know some of your real family pay attention but your basketball family you know. It's you know great connection points because obviously we all have busy with our lives and stuff like that and and I didn't even know that so thank you. I mean Ryan really helps me with all that to a little bit. 'cause you know clearly I don't even know like I responding to tweets. I'm not the best and all that I'm like Ryan I need help but you know. I mean. I kinda made the comment. We've got a lot of media over here yesterday. Which was fun and I just you know. I mean that the the the collective bargaining group the WNBA. How awesome is that that is so huge? Because you don't WanNa things we always talk about it you. You'RE NOT GONNA get rich with women's basketball so you know be impactful. You Know We as the coaching staff at eight and shoe. You know obviously try to help her. Women you know just grow so much beyond basketball you know so when they leave they're gonNa have great lives and impact people and the communities that they're in and you know I think I think you know I don't know I hope that I. I hear that a lot from our former players. You know just that they you know they all the things that we kind of taught and we we Grew and learn from through basketball. You know they really really helps them in their life though and people who may not know because the the news did just come out overnight that the WNBA and the players union have reached a at least a tentative deal on a CB that would nearly double the maximum salary and provide paid maternity leave. So it's it's a huge deal and we're going to talk about that a little bit more cats but I'm really glad you brought. Yeah Yeah Yeah No amen and also Charlie you you say that your old but I gotta tell you Doug Tamra who's one of the best. Sad's in the business does Asu men's basketball. He'd sent me a reply to a tweet. That out after you guys one on Friday and it 'cause I mentioned that it was the first top five win for this program since you guys beat Stanford in the Inaugural Pac ten tournament championship game. And I don't know if you saw it but doug sent me back. He's a live. Look at the podium and it was a picture of you from. I'm assuming it was. It was maybe that year it was probably two thousand and two and you haven't changed. You look the same so I I don't know what you're doing and I don't know how much you're spending on your professional jobs but it's worth so I just had. I just had to say that. I'll send you the picture if you haven't seen it 'cause it's it's phenomenal. Okay well thank thank you actually. I really appreciate that Yeah I make up is wonderful. I know what Doug is notorious for sending out these. These nineties pitchers with my ninety there and That aren't very flattering. And I think in this day and age but it's the hopefully. Yeah this one is one we love it. Yeah he's he's we. Have Steve Rodriguez to unbelievable? But you know we're such a family at Asu Doug Mark. Everybody just cares about you. Know all the teams and and really you know are amazing. No it was going and you make the point about brand. Who AGAIN IS FOOTBALL? And he'd sent an email to Mike. Am and I about just. Hey here's some things in case you didn't know so it was it. It's cool and it is a family over there I married. I just went boo through both of these winds. We haven't even actually talked about the Games yet. But let's just got to ask you. We could spend a ton of time dissecting how it all went down but just tell me Charlie. Your favorite on-court moment from the Oregon went on Friday and your favorite encore moment from the Oregon state went on Sunday man. That's that's a tough one You know obviously you know big shots down the stretch and you know. I think you guys know but Kiki Miss like my starting point guard didn't get to play the Oregon game so you know and Riley had the flu all weekend. So you know Riley stepping up and hitting those big shots down the stretch. I mean I thought you know that the timely defense it Robbie I did I did really like shades block of bullying corner because Jay. Jay Ben Happy is you know. She's just like our unsung hero and she just does she worked so hard and she just makes plays and you know I mean. She's so athletic. But she doesn't necessarily look like this amazing athlete and But she you know if you line. Our entire team and our team is very fast. She would she possibly would win the sprint. I think you've heard me say that but anyway Gosh so I've already moved on to Washington Washington State so now I've got a I think for a second but you know Oregon State you know there was Some some really and I loved three sanders coming in and giving US huge boost off the bench to in Oregon game 'cause Ebony you know any Walker's playing really. Well she's struggling a little bit like we got just goes in and knocks down. The three gets a steal in our. She played wigs. Sabrina S in club. Bottom if you guys knew that But she she had you know some great moments in that game which I just love when players that don't usually get as many opportunities go in and just make the most of them Charlie allude to something that I find just so amazing about you and that's the power of here's the power of the made up mind you and positively and the difference it makes and I love this quote by the essence of toughness is being able to stay positive when things aren't going your way and it's a it's an interesting take on toughness because you think toughness is one thing but to say it's staying positive when things are going sideways it just resonates with me and your team and in particular one player you haven't mentioned yet and that's Jamie Rudin. Yeah how `Bout Jamie Rubin? How Bono and yeah. I mean that was definitely like the fact that Oregon State had to put on her in the second half you know because she had you know such a great first half that was definitely a fair you know one of my great moments and and I thought I made a great play knocking. The ball typically at the very end of the game too but But Yeah Yeah. I think this team is really young. And you know very various than and So we've been growing our toughness muscle in that way. You're not allowing things to bother us. Just you know it's it's definitely not just being able to punch punch punch it's being able to take a punch you know we've gotten better at that And I think that really showed up. You know this last weekend and Jamie Rubin showed up this last weekend to You know she. She's definitely really are are one main true will walk player and so when she's in and then she can you know pick and pop. You know you know if you WANNA jump and heads or travel on your own ball screens. And you've got Jamie root out there. It's you know. We used to have you know and and and and Jamie a little bit but know. She's definitely she changes the game. Changes Matchups And she just had a wonderful weekend and her mom was out to see it per kid. That's been so injured for so long and been robbed of so much of her career. I cannot tell you how easy it was. Her parents. Whatever parents actually was there in person? You know getting to see such big weekend that our team had but her daughter has so. That was sorry when a little a little moment that no. That's I mean that's that's amazing and that's again why why. Why coach and why play to have moments like that. You said something Charlie in the Oregon Post game interview with Tammy Blackburn that. I that I loved. You said You told your team at the half when you win. This game celebrate like you just won the National Championship. Because it means you're good enough to do it and I just love that I I gotta ask. Did you honestly have a sense at halftime? I think he has rebounds seven that that you were going to win and why did you feel that way I felt like we. You know we didn't make shot And we were only down seven you know I mean we were getting good luck and we. They were balling you know and so I absolutely felt it. You know that we could. We could do a little bit better defensively in some areas and I. I just knew if we came out relaxed and start knocking down our shots we would be right there and I also just wanted to give them. I just wanted to make sure that they believed you know. And so that was my way of just saying. Hey you know fit 'cause if you don't if you don't really see it you don't usually make it happen. So was there anything else in that halftime. Because I know you were asked about that message. I think it was Sunday night or Sunday afternoon. After you beat Oregon State you were asked about that. Oregon halftime message said. Hey I can't really say it in front of all these cameras so I. There are no cameras. Now it's just a phone line and Mary Murphy and I guess if we guess like was it was a t- The promise of a tattoo involved maybe no no it wasn't.

"`Bout that indeed. I'm they're still partying on mill avenue. I think what seventy two hours later Cindy Brunson on the call for us on the PAC twelve network after an absolutely epic epic weekend. I'm losing my voice law radium. I'm so excited about it. Mary Murphy Actually Adamson with you. Welcome back to the PODCAST The most sought after interviewing women's College Basketball Asu head coach Turner. Thorne's she's GonNa join us in just a few moments. I cannot wait to talk to her but Mary. You've been doing this quite a while. Can you remember a bigger regular season weekend for a team? I can't yet and I texted Charlie this after both games. It didn't surprise me. Everyone seems so shocked. And there's just like you could feel the reverberations like this. Giant earthquake took place in women's basketball. But I sort of sat in the bay area because I was doing cal. Stanford a weekend and I wasn't surprised because I'm never surprised when Charlie's teams are prepared and when Charlie's teams win games whether the underdog or not and so it was epic but I think down in Tempe Annette Locker. I'm like yeah that's right. This is what we do. It was unbelievable and the celebration after both Games was was incredible and amazing. And if you haven't watched it just get on twitter and and look it up because it's it's awesome. It is pure joy at his. Why you play the sport and coach the sport no doubt about it Arizona state by the way the first unranked team ever to be two top five teams in back to back Games ever ever put that in like gold with like cups ever stamped we should stanford did it. Most recently. In two thousand ten they were ranked they took down Number four number one yukon. But there's just so much to talk about. I don't want to completely ignore some of the other storylines because there was another wildly entertaining weekend. Certainly oh by the way. Sabrina got twenty. Second triple double. We'll we'll get to that in a minute and tip the cap to UCLA. Who is the last remaining undefeated team in the nation sixteen to know after getting by surviving that Rocky Mountain Road trip Utah and Colorado and this surprises me Mary? This was unbelievable stat. The first time ever that the PAC twelve has had the last undefeated team in the nation right but if we had started our podcast in the preseason would we have voted for Oregon. Would we have voted for Oregon State? Would we have assumed it would be Stanford? Would you ever have imagined it would be? Uc L. A. Absolutely not I mean the job. They're doing that just and they're just flying steady under the radar of course steady until they were up twenty five and Colorado said No. We're going to have a rocky mountain high. Let's go and get after it. Yeah no doubt. We'll talk a little bit later in the podcast because it's not just happened in the PAC twelve if it's happening nationally and it's fun I mean it's it's wild that it's making everything hard to predict but we're setting up for a fantastic march. There's no doubt about it okay. So a Asu where. I don't even know where to start with this other than that. You you kinda warned everybody on the podcast last week. With Murphy's law you said pay attention in particular to what was going on in Arizona this weekend. Well I think if you think about Tucson as well the organs could have been swept on the weekend with what Arizona almost pulled off as well with the DEA Barnes and the great crowds there they were pretty darn close competed. Hard just couldn't get to the finish line but you know there's been so much conversation about. Asu would they be ready for that second game because of all the emotion Hubbert Oregon State? You're just coming off that game where pivot at the end needed to come up with her usual heroics and now you're on the road and you're you're traveling up the road. The I tend to go to Arizona State and you've got to play The Sun devils. This thing goes both ways. It's not all it's pressures on. Asu We'd beat one. Can we beat the other? Hey Oregon State can you beat? Can you chase around area McDonald and that high flying team and that great defensive team in Tucson and now can you do it again in Tempe? This is now the second road trip in the conference maybe in the country because of look at the defensive stats who locked you down better than Asu in Arizona with two different styles of defense. This is a brutal road trip that certainly going to organism is no easy peasy but You know flip that scrip a little bit on if you're Oregon state now you gotta go walk in that building and play. Asu that that's that's not easy. That's a great point man. I think you know it's no secret. How Much Arizona? Asu that that is a real real true rivalry obviously but it is kind of. Nice to have your home partner. Be A team. That is that good. I mean that that that's helpful. There's no doubt I'm sure Charlie will mention that when we talked to her. You know back a couple years ago. You know was breezed through Tucson lay by the pool. Hang OUT ENJOY THE SUN. Get warm from maybe being cold wherever your school is and then you're going to go up to to. Tempe and have a challenge. Now there's no hanging by the pool like you've got to be in your room hydrating and th this is. This is for real weekend no doubt about it so it just in case for whatever reason you you didn't get to watch two of the greatest upsets ever just briefly a quick recap Friday. Sabrina and two Oregon come into Tempe. They were going to be the number one team if they had they had been able to survive and same with Oregon State. They had a chance to be number one because UCONN lost on Thursday. And the first. I'd say three quarters. It felt like it was close organ was in control you got Riley. Richardson playing with the flue. She had one hundred degree fever and then Oregon they just. They had some uncharacteristic turnovers. I think they finished with seventeen but it looked like they were going to escape. I thought they were and then the fourth quarter rolled around. And it's like is that Robbie Ryan Reilly Richardson or is that Klay Thompson. Instead they just come out and just asu. That's always been the thing is that where's the offense? GonNa come from. And all of a sudden they just hit some huge Jamie Rudin hit a huge three and the place was going nuts and it was. It was just unbelievable to see like where did that come from. Okay when you need it. Most you go five of six from three in the fourth quarter and asu seventeen to two points off turnovers against Oregon. Seventeen to two. I mean it's just a mind boggling number and the energy in that building and the fans and people rising up and it's just that moment an Oregon had it when they played the United States women's team that feeling in Eh when people look at each other in the stands like Oh my God visit evaluating and you could feel it with Tammy and Cindy on the call I mean it just it just Kinda you just float away with it. It's really exciting. I mean Tammy with the with the chest bump With that was that was Riley. Richardson right I think. Or maybe knows Robby Ryan. After the game the chestnut was was pretty great. I mean Robbie Ryan's the type of person who she gets excited. She walks up to a wall and chest but I mean she's just an excitable personality that she was glad she had. She had to kind of give it a little. Because Ra- Rodney could knocked over. I mean Romney. Dharavi did not mess around. So you kind of alluded to it to after that game you think are. Maybe there's going to be a little bit of a hangover. Obviously they they were playing Riley was sick. There's Kiki Kiki didn't even play. He can Russell And so you wonder you you pull off a win like that and then can you regroup and forty eight hours later. Take on a team again. That is going to be. Potentially the number one team in the country mic pivot. Hit the guest on the podcast. She hit the game winner in Tucson on Friday. And it just seemed like okay this you know. Maybe they'll keep a close but no way. Are they going to win? Both of these games and the script was slipped a little bit from what we saw Friday night as you actually I think led most of the way and then the beavers made that late comeback to tie it up but the Sun was didn't flinch and that's the mark of of a team. That's progressing Mary. Because you can. You can win from coming behind you can win from surviving a run by the other team and you want to see your team win in those different ways. There's no doubt and just the ability to hit free throws when you need to need to make them You know down the stretch you go six six from the line and you know those are those are the moments aren't they? I mean you practice. Free throws and coaches always say okay. Pretend it's the you know the inner like right here just a little little zone like when we eating and you just move on boy the moneyball. You're at that free. Throw line you miss going down with an opportunity to make two or three you make your sealing victory and the greatest epoch weekend ever. I mean that's the kind of pressure that Richardson and Robbie just just thrive on and I go back to last year. Think about all those close games. They had where they came back against. Utah at home like that epic. That was the job they did at Utah. They had three or four games last year. Where this core group just came on and was able to pull him out. They lost so many scores. When you think about ibis and Sharon H Johnson Chapman and J Chapman Johnson. Sorry and they just their ability to just just reload and reconfigure and put together go play small ball and be big ball and I think that's one of the biggest storylines and Asu's bench in both of those games I think. Acs Bench at Twenty five points against Oregon and maybe thirteen or fifteen minutes to Oregon state. And I WANNA ask. Ct about this but sh she always the hockey rotation she. She always unloads her bench. But you you really think when when you play the elite teams that most coaches tighten their bench of a little bit. At least. That's my impression. Y- of Charlie doesn't yeah and the thing that is a. It's so beautiful about Charlie and and Is is consistency. I play my bench. She's just not saying that when she's recruiting people but she's doing it in in February and March on and now in January. It's just she is a key incredibly consistent. You believe her when she tells you something. And what that means is a as a player is my coast coach. Trust me they need me and when I go out just put it all out there and something happen and you could see that time and time again and Charlie is GonNa join us in just one minute but before we welcome on the head coach of the Sun Devils. Let's just mentioned so a issue goes from being unranked and they're now eighteenth in the latest p pulled that that saw tun of shakeup never before the top three teams lost in the same week in the regular season. Can I say you May? You're on ranked your issue and ranked first of all. That's a problem second. You beat two and three and you move in to eighteen on. Yeah come on news writers you think they should have been higher. Well what do you think well? Let's just okay. So let's go through the PAC twelve now has six ranked teams that ties a record. Stanford's Third Oregon six. Ucla as seven Oregon State is eight and Arizona is twenty one so the biggest surprise to you and all of that is is that issue isn't higher yes and I think Arizona should be higher quite honestly but it does it really matter i. It's like talking to a reporter for the L. A. Times yesterday and I mean it's kind of like twitter with likes. You Know Ashley you always have more likes than I do. And so you know but it's it's just it's sort of a contest right and so what what really matters is our Pi. What really matters as as things progress where you're gonna you know maybe Brecca technology means more but it. It's just something that's in the paper and gets people's attention and makes mom and dad's happy so what you're saying is that your content on twitter is way better than mine even though I get more likes. That's probably accurate. Were you mentioned Balaji so it should just real quick charlie cream. It was fascinating so as you goes from being a projected ten seed to now. There are a five seat in his latest stunning. It is and I. I can't remember a team that made that kind of jump after one weekend. It see. That's that's a lot more real to me than than pull by coaches or a poll by by you know people that write in the newspaper or social media. Yeah all right well. We are running out of ways to describe what these winds meant to. Asu So let's get a little bit of help. Showy let their head coach..

"And now for Murphy's law who emerged law. This started a segment from the Great Michael Monarchy. Mars is a phenomenal phenomenal game producer for us at the PAC twelve network and Murphy's law itself is sometimes misunderstood. I went down a rabbit hole on the Internet last night about Murphy's law but essentially it's as everyone knows that if anything can go wrong tonight thing yeah yeah human gloom line. So what we're going to do is Murphy's law every week on the podcast. We obviously talk about the big match ups in the Big Games but in the segment. Mary's going to tell you what what specifically to pay attention to in the upcoming slate of games that we can because one interpretation of Murphy's law obviously is that upsets are going to happen so as you look at the game coming up this weekend Mary. Would we pay attention to big picture? One thing is for every fan of petrol. Women's basketball honestly get your PAC twelve APP. Get on their watch. Highlights watched some of your team look at stats. Look at the upcoming schedule. Who's playing who? Where are those games? What are the trends? There's so much information on there that you can digest. Look that you can look stats. How teams doing individuals and really get a feel for what's coming down remember. It's an unbalanced schedule. Everybody doesn't play everybody twice. So there's GonNa be some imbalance there. Some schedules are tougher than others. Core close talked about that with me last night. So just you know. Try to wrap your head around that and then just don't have an expectation that a team like Oregon State. We alluded to this. A little bit earlier are going to go to the desert role. They're not going to the desert role. These are going to be great games and across the board. This is the table. That's going to be set every single weekend. So don't be surprised by anything and every quarter every half every minute on the floor matters every possession matters because any little slippage teams are going to take advantage of it. So you know just roll with it. But kind of widen out. Whatever your team is and try to get a feel for what the what's going on all over the place because this conference we thought it was good ash and now it truly is better than we even expected when you look at the top ten look what. Ucla's doing Arizona Arizona state just up and down. There's going to be a lot of surprises so pay attention. That's the Murphy's law pay attention. People pay attention so what? What's the what's maybe the matchup? We talked about the desert. But what's maybe one of the match ups that we really need to Pay Tech Oregon Arizona on. I think it's going to be a fantastic game. Can't wait to see how Oregon matches up with with Arizona. We're seeing Oregon play a lot. More three-quarter court pressure trying to chew up clock. So teams can't get in the half court teams like Stanford and teams like Oregon State. That have ten thousand plays in their playbook. Don't have all that time to run their action. So they're gonNA try to chew things up so all you have is maybe fifteen ten seconds to get off. It turns into a quick hitter instead of running full. You know through everything you're trying to do but that game it's going to be dynamic. Think about McDonald matching up with Sabrina. And just keep an eye on Mignon more the transfer from USC. The graduate transfer is a difference maker. She's doing a terrific job she's coming on in. Mignon matters and she's fun to watch. I just gotTa say Calling Farrell's our fabulous producer of this podcast. Choline we gotTA figure out a way to get. This thing streamed because Mary Murphy Right now. Like she is in her element I. It's a good thing that she's tethered to the desk with her headset. Because otherwise she'd be like standing on the desk right now. She's you're very effusive in your body movement and it gets me really excited. Me and Marie Anderson always talks about well. We're blocking her out during broadcast. Yeah it gets me fired up and players like magnon more. Just you know they just make you want to dig in get out there and play calling. Can you make it happen? You can do that one more thing. There is kind of you need to when you're talking about the depth of the league. We've had nine weeks of ball and there have been eight different player of the week now. I love that. That's I think that's something going forward. We could definitely talk about for sure and the surprising thing is the only player. That's repeated is not Sabrina. Not every it is key piece. Yeah shocking look at colleen just dive in at the last second with a wonderful stat. I love that stuff all right so Friday. All five games are on the patch will network and your PAC twelve now at.

"Yeah you're getting a Master's in physics. You'll show them. What's what's the plan for after basketball. I know you're going to hopefully have a very long basketball career. But but what land for for Post Plan. Yeah I love my goal right now is to play basketball possible whether that's here in the Wnba the US or whether that's overseas and want to pursue that I and then when that's nine I like to go to medical school and be either a pediatrician or psychiatrist. one of the to be my goal. Amazing Amazing One thing. I love to share is Make your first two years. I never looked at me or said Hi. You just would walk. Am I right smile? That maybe time maybe if I caught it and now you walk right up in your like. Hi Mary how are you today? And it's it's how much of your personality the last year and a half as really started to come out on the floor and just with just with everybody around. You definitely come more confident in who I am and being able to share that with people outside of our team. I know like with our team. Really comfortable and I've been around the Milwaukee. They've opened me up Early on and I think being this culture being this environment everybody being so accepting who you are whatever that may be that it's been able to translate to outside of our team and helped me blossom into who becoming Definitely a lot more open to you. Talking to New People and Starting conversations with people. I probably wouldn't have started with before coming here and I'm going to ask you about your kind of you coming in your own in your sense of humor your personality because that has come out a big way in a in a blog that you're doing for we're gonNA live but before we do that. I got my hat to you because a lot of actual student athletes are really involved in their communities. But you take that to a completely different level. Mary printed out your linked. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA JUST. It's making me feel really inadequate but the thing that clearly out. Mek is just your experience with all the volunteer work you do and I. I mean we don't even have time to run through it all but you are so involved with so many different meaningful organizations. It seems like you've been that way since you know since you were younger so tell me about a some of the stuff that you're doing right now in the community and be like where where that drive comes through. Because I know you don't have a lot of spare time on your hands yeah I think it started for my parents to me. being grape off. What you have and giving back to others who may not have as much as you So when I was in high school and middle school my mom would out to you. families who were less fortunate and needed some help with household chores or maybe The mowing the yard or pruning bushes in the back We traveled to local families together and spend time with them and also spend time with each other And I think a lot of it is my faith with God and knowing that he Has placed me here for a reason. There could be people that are able to play basketball but he let me have this opportunity. This platform to impact others inspire others so trying to maximize that And currently A lot of us are going to On our team going to stony brook quits assisted living place with a lot of elderly to cook meals for them or interact with them as well as Any children's centered activities in the community whether that's going to interact a recess with kids or going to read books with them in the library But we try to maximize this platform. Impact others The most you can. I just want to tell you that before we brought you on. I said the best way that I can describe you is that she's exactly who you hope. Your daughter grows up to be and I think that that answering some of the insiders speaks to exactly why I feel that way. So it's just it's awesome. What you're doing one of the other things you're doing in all of this spare time that you have is is like. I said right in that blog for Oregon live Scott Rookie. Coach was the one who who told me about it and I did kind of deep dive last night. And there's just so much great insight. I highly recommend for for people who are listening whether you're in Oregon State Fan or not you can just Google. You know cable pivot and blogging. It'll come up but one of the things in there that I that I really realized there's not only are you a great writer but you have a wonderful sense of humor and just humor me for a minute because I want to read the opening line from your very. I think it's funny Sarah. It's so fun there's so many just it's witty and it's funny but so for people let me just let me just read the opening line from your first entry so it says I'm Michaela. My middle name is Denali like the mountain and the car. I used to sell GUPPIES OUT OF MIDDLE. School locker recycled gatorade bottles. My favorite food is the potato because of its versatility. Such an underrated vegetable that can transform with a little work into mashed potatoes potato salad. French fries chips baked potato potato soup. Hashbrowns Tater tots and Yoki as we simply scratch the surface on this miraculous shape. Shifter that is like beautiful pros and I feel like that was some of the most poignant culinary insight that I've ever gotten so the thing though that I gotta ask you about is the guppies like what you sold guppies Outta gatorade bottles in Middle School Yeah. I bought five guppies from a dairy queen off of craigslist. Back in dairy queen copies I met somebody from craigslist is very clean. Feels like a safe spot. And they put him my tank and they had they replicated tons of babies and so I didn't know what to do with them all so I started A little business selling fifty cents each not taking advantage of everybody but just trying to make some profit of my initial gut the Investors Entrepreneur guppy investor. I loved you make a little bit of money. I hope probably like ten or fifteen dollars. What yeah that's a lot of guppies that you sold the other thing that you play and again like I said there's just some awesome stuff in there but one of the things and Mary and I talk all the time about the crowd support that you guys have gale and one of the things I really love. And when you're blogs yeah was was that when you went to Miami and that there were maybe thirty people in the stands and it was a good reminder to you of how Special Gill is because when you play there every home game not that you ever take it for granted but you get used to it so for those Oregon State fans that are that are listening. What what is it meant to? You means so much stuff that we have that atmosphere plan all the time when we travel on the Road We're reminded of how. Special Gill is Super Thankful for everyone comes to support us in ways. More than basketball. I know a lot of our fans. Come up to us and talk to us about our life interest and how they can help us. with Things off the court so Thank you guys for taking interest as people and supporting us every step along the way through this basketball journey. Hey Mick I know you love to pull pranks or are you still pulling pranks. Are you trying to be a little more serious about life? You know I've matured a little bit I pulled as many pranks during high school But thanks reminder will have to think if my next one coming up shortly was Mary Semi Article. It was nickname was prankster pivot. Which I just absolutely love it just before we let you tell me. Your Best Prank. This was kind of mean but in all the best pranks usually are so. Yeah exactly one of my friends in high school We were scheduled to volunteering thing. And so two r three had committed to it and then the last one bailed last minute and so we're trying think of a way for to get back at her for bailing on us So we talked about this guy That it comes to meet US. And he was very interested in her And so I basically catfish dirt like creating count of this like Nice Guy And I added maybe like a hundred friends. I randomly hurting people that look at a couple of pictures And then started messaging her back and forth like Oh My friend is like me your friends they talked about. You have a lot of common interests. And then I kinda dragged too far by Continue the Messenger over the course of the month and then she would come to me and talking about how great this guy was. Okay needs to end I drag it too far. But after the fact she ended up thinking it was pretty funny. Did she really all did? She was she was. She wasn't heartbroken that this man ever dreams was was. Was you think here the friendship for a week or two but then we're back to normal and she had forgiven me. I'm going to watch my back. Michaela Kim say that and that's my biggest takeaway is that Yeah Michaela. Pittock is perfect but there there is. There was that one time she catfish somebody not perfect. You don't know me enough yet. I love that make. You are awesome. Best of luck this week and I know you guys have have a huge road trip coming up in the state of Arizona so safe travels to the desert and thanks again so much for the time. It's been awesome chatting with you as always having me have a good one. I can't believe that Michaela pivot just told us she catfish someone in high school that. That's that's stuff that you only get on on the inside Pactel. Women's basketball podcast. Mary I'm just glad she's not completely perfect. Hope for the rest of us. What what a student athlete would human being. I'm I just love her. She's amazing now she really is. She's she's so easy to cheer for and I'm excited to see what she's able to do her senior year and certainly beyond as for what is directly in front of Mcpick and this beaver squad. They've got a salty Arizona team coming off that lost. Ucla obviously Friday night. You can see right here on the PAC twelve network at seven o'clock biggest thing for you Mary. To Watch for in Tucson. Well I think in Tucson it's just for both Games Oregon and Oregon State it's This is a team. That's very confident at home and From from the middle of their line up to the top. They've got quality they've improved dramatically and salty is a great word for it. I mean they're not used to losing games anymore and They'RE GONNA be ready to go for for both week for both games this weekend. And it's The desert words at I mean there's Great Games all over the conference but the desert is where it's at I mean Oregon State lost twice to Asu last year. You talk about salty. It's it's GonNa be salty for the bees when when when they play a few and Asu is going to be ready. Well they split last weekend It's just GonNa be a a a No. We're GONNA have both four Zombie. It's a it's going to be a great a great great games to catch. Yeah looking forward to that. The other shout out before we Say Goodbye there was some history made in the bay area this weekend and a player that I you know. I know that you've got a great relationship within that we've loved watching. She could've transferred a couple of times. And she stuck it out. Bobby Buckets Bobby Buckets Maybe under the radar. People don't really appreciate because they don't see her enough but bobby breaking records. Career leader At at Washington state in scoring a year ago had some real health concerns. Twenty pounds on still continued to play wasn't able to really be the player she wanted to be. And One of the highlights of my ear so far was doing the pre game interview with her at at Stanford and just looking at her smile looking at how happy she is and one of the things we love about the the women that we cover is how much they love to play basketball. They don't do it for any reason. Except they get out there and to be with their teammates and the joy of taking jump shots and playing defense and rebounding and competing. And Bobby's right up there from Varna. Bulgaria she'll go whether she pleasant wnba overseas. He's got a bright bright future. She's already graduated taking a couple classes now for eligibility Sake but you know they went over and B- cow. She had a tremendous game as did SONOMA LENA. But Bobby her stove. We call her Bobby Buckets Special Person Special Basketball Player of all time leading scorer took down genealogists record that stood for thirty eight years. And you mentioned that that game that Washington state CAL game. Kate Scott who who called for US said that she got a text from you in the first quarter wondering if stat broadcast. Yeah I thought it was broken. It was fifty two fourteen and I would literally turn my ipad off and turned it back. This cannot possibly be right Sherman Smith in her first year. I mean I could commiserate a little bit my first game of my in the Big Ten. I I lost by forty two Iowa and I remember. We went four corners just to try to limit possession. So maybe we wouldn't lose by fifty but it just You know it was just one of those moments but Sherman's team came back and cut that game to thirteen so don't sleep on the bears as well they'll keep coming at you and to that point and was something because I was talking to kate yesterday and and just asking her about the weekend and she said that the the moment that resonated the most for her obviously other than bobby breaking the record was that after that loss and they got you know they they got handled but by Washington state obviously came back a little bit in the second half but it was a big loss and Sharman Smith got on the MIC afterwards and address the crowd and just said Hey you know thank you for coming. Thank you for being here. We know this isn't the result that you wanted and we're working hard. We're going to get there. Thank you for supporting this team. And she got a standing ovation. Not just from CAL fans but from the Washington state fans who were there as well so it was just a kid described. Just a really awesome moment and I. It's GONNA be Iraqi season likely as she finds her footing. But it feels like this team is all in but look it's going to be rocky for a lot of teams because if you catch Oregon.

Make tell the story the Super Jersey story when you're a little girl. Oh yes in fourth grade. I had this Subaru Jersey.

"The Freshman Haley Jones has taken a lot of pressure off urges enough to handle the ball as much but the glue. The superglue on that team is Kiana and the way she plays the game and it was her best performance. Were in early January so the better she plays sort of keeping all this together and the great leadership that she shows really impressive against a a U. DUB team. We haven't talked about yet but surprising. Some people are ready to conference wins. That's all they had all of last year the momentum from the The the PAC twelve tournament upset victories over. Utah and then what they did against Oregon State. This is a team that feels like they can beat a lot of people so they were tied at half. Kiana took over in the third. Yeah well and then she also took over the post game. She did. Because I've got to ask you when I saw the clip come out on twitter and I immediately texted you and I said. Can you please explain what's going on here because all of a sudden? I look and it's Kiana Williams leading a group of fans on the court after their win over Washington state in the CUPID SHUFFLE. Which is why I t's that earlier. How did that? Ki- like Gimme the Baxter. Because you were watching it and target on it. She did so. It was a- a group that they have doing dancing that they've put together. I it sort of. I'M NOT GONNA say senior group and it's just a group of fans that just want to participate. The New York Liberty. Have a group that does it in a lot of people are are following suit on this. But they tar SORTA SORTA told can't go on out there and sort of you know participate in all the Stanford players got involved and I was watching Tara and she wasn't really GonNa Start Dancing. And then I saw Anna Wilson kind of lean over and like a dance instructor like we're doing dancing with the stars and she just Kinda got her turned around and got it got her moving in the right direction and all of a sudden tar is doing the cupid shuffle and literally. I'm staring at her. And She just Kinda like shrugs. Her shoulders like why? Not what can I say I mean? The thing went viral. Erica McCall who's overseas starts tweeting about it? Dj's like I didn't know she. Can you know dance that well and so I was going back and forth on text with Tara last night and she just wants everyone to know she was a bit rusty that she doesn't get out to the clubs as much as she used to but she felt good about her effort You know what that that's what we come to the podcast for that Amer. Good stuff a hall of famer a little rusty in the club but Not Shuffle That is awesome. She's having fun this year. She's got four hundred ninety nine. Pac twelve wins by the way. Quick Nugget for you when she reaches five hundred which she'll have a chance to do that one stanford plays cow this weekend She will be the first coach to reach five. Hundred wins in a single conference at the same school. So there's an Asterik there in that gre. Emma has five hundred conference wins. Obviously at Uconn but different as a member of two conferences. So not our fault. They left the big east. That's that's Gino's problems. So congrats Almost to Tara on picking up five hundred of when that is just huge and she's all famer for a reason And obviously still has some serious dance moves all right we. We gotTa Talk About Oregon State. Because we're about to have Michaela PIC- join us in. A in a couple of minutes but real quick. Let's just set the table and talk about the believes one of four undefeated teams remaining in the country along along with Ucla from the pack twelve. They've been to four straight sweet sixteen. They went to the elite eight two years ago. Does this year feel like a year? They break through and get back to the final four and and why or why not. I say yes. There is every indication that they can do it they're a team and a program that embraces the challenge. They don't run from it. Scott ROIC talks openly about it mick. Pivot will as well. I think that's the expectation but what is different about this team and it is a big difference is their post game is vastly improved and it's because of freshmen and it's because freshmen are surrounded with experience. They are missing Takur style. That's a huge loss for them. Versatility how well she defends can knock down threes but this is a a a team. I think destiny. Slocombe playing her best basketball up at Oregon State. And when you have pivot and Elliot Goodman who can shoot with any body in the country and You know tutor. Everyone's favourite is back as well. I see you know. Wouldn't you love to sit at practice and watch those two? Have SHOOT OFF They've got all the ingredients and the Gill crowds will lift. You like a cloud. Sue Wherever you need to go that and I WANNA ask you mentioned you know. They've got some different pieces that they've got two really big time freshmen. Who have started every single game and when I say big time I mean I mean big tall as well Taylor Jones six four. She's the actual freshman of the week for the third time she was. Also I think just named national freshman of the week and then Kennedy Brown six so that you mentioned that you know the new pieces in the post and we know Scott Pruitt. We've talked about it a lot. You and I his ability to groom and teach post players to develop an and reach their potential. We've seen him do it before and it looks like he's got a couple of really really talented young freshman and we know how talented the freshman of Ben over the years at Oregon State but in particular Taylor Jones already three times freshman of the week and the only Oregon state player to ever be named three times? There's a lot left to this season. And so right now when people are talking about national freshman of the year Taylor Jones in the conversation. That's the kind of difference that she is making money. When she shoots the ball like sixty two percent she just solid she rebounds and if you can understand the defensive scheme now you've got you know somebody in that back line that is helping if someone gets to the rim that can create some problems. She's right now. The Missing Ingredient for this team in is really helping the rest. Just really come together. It's The thing about Oregon State and we talked to on a couple different shows about this their ability now to go to Texas and get great players. Texas you know. All the teams that go to Texas Tara has grew McKay's San Antonio's were Kiana Williams from Ucla's GonNa Texas and had success now. Scott Rook going to Texas going to Kansas. Oregon state goes to Kansas and gets one of the best players to come to Oregon State. Think about that for SEC. Big Twelve big ten you. Can You name the program? Nope she wanted to go to Oregon State. This is serious business. They're for real. And this is where it's at this PAC twelve. Were it's at Oregon? State's one of the places where you WANNA be well said well said and you mentioned again. Taylor. She had six blocks against Colorado on Sunday. And Yeah but but she is not the leading rebounder on the team and I think that parleys well into our interview that the straw that stirs the drink for Oregon State is their senior guard. She is leading the pack twelve in rebounding. She's also top aide in the conference in scoring assists in field. Goal Percentage Michaela Pic- our first guest of the podcast. Now Michaela thanks so much for making the time. How's your morning going? Well thank you very much for having me. You just gotTa class yet about ten minutes ago. so Fanta quite fun to sit here. Talk with you guys now. And what class did you just get out of Michaela Make me sound like a nerd but a graduate behavioral neuroscience. That doesn't make you sound like a nerd that just makes you sound way smarter than everyone else that I hang out with. I see in that. Mary really struggled to get better teams. We appreciate you and we're going to talk about The classroom part coming up because we have a ton to get to. I've been really looking forward to conversation and appreciate the time. But let's just start big picture with the fact that the beavers are off to their best start in program history. You guys are fourteen to know for you personally as a senior does. Does this year or this team feel any different to you this for me? I have an extra sense of urgency. 'cause my last year last go round and the PAC twelve and Last season for me in our class so We're trying to make the most of it and helping my teammates. Young one because the freshman as well as the veterans have been helping them learn what I've learned the past few years and pass classes. I about to play with you. Mentioned the urgency and you had almost a triple double on Sunday against Colorado Sixteen points fifteen rebounds and eight assists but the the stat that really jumps out as those fifteen rebounds you lead the League in rebounding and you're a guard how I think part of it is our defensive positioning as a team. We pride ourselves on making takes up socks over us and so we have dependent positioning that way. I think also I'm relentless in my pursuit of the basketball I have high motoring. I liked take plays off so if I can get expeditions. My team here. I know they'll help a better chance of winning. Scientists go after it every time I can make I know in that Colorado game you played forty minutes and from an announcer standpoint. We always make a big deal about that. Like oh micatin tires. You need a blow. Do you get tired. Is that a real thing or is that just not a factor for you? I do get tired but I think are facing eviction coach Jeff and such a good job especially in that precede making making those conditioning drills Painful for US office in the long run So that that preseason work is there for a reason us for games where we have to fold out fourth quarter or ethnic lake. Sediments be ready for that. I don't know how much twitter but have you followed Rebecca Lobo te sort of bringing attention to your rebounding numbers. I saw A tree that Oregon State basketball has put. Al is pretty cool to highlight that. I have to tell you a funny story so I was doing your game last year and I said on the air and the Cayla pick at six two and she I know everywhere and shuts looks at me and like starts doing her theatrics and pointing to the roster like she. She's only five ten. You know so. Many players come into college in their assigned a position. That hasn't really been your journey. Has It you? Don't define yourself by a position? No I played my favorite therapy Share positions one through four luckily haven't placed the five yet And hopefully they don't but I've been trying to do whatever bought the TV's Phil whether that's the point guard my sophomore year whether that's abby more defensive-minded and My freshman year Is trying to do whatever the team needs me to do? And trying to fill. Whatever role is available? Mary and I were just talking about some of the newcomers on squad specifically tailored Jones and Kennedy Brown. So tell me what. It's been like a incorporating the freshman because there's obviously always you remember it. There's a learning curve coming in and playing D. One BASKETBALL FROM HIGH SCHOOL. No matter how good you are and how many state championships you one in highschool ex exactly I've loved Getting to try to mentor. These freshmen lungs are other veterans and Senior Class. In trying to help them learn as quick as possible but when I saw them Working this fall and the summer I described him as bold and they came in wanting to work one. Eighty two extra rep's wait and see how they get better every day and they had this mentality that they had to get better and I worked to help us right away So I I saw that in the fall and we you guys able to see it at the start of our season Kennedy bound into Jones have have an edge to them and their superfund of play with their competitors. And they're they're talented and just sort of part of what got you into this season playing so well was that experience with the Pan Am team. We talked about it at me day. But what was it like to go to that tryout then make the team and then do as well as you did and just lastly to wear a Jersey with USA on. It was an amazing experience Last May when the tryouts were held And I was the first time I'd done anything. Usa Basketball Related. I try out to me like I had been invited to. Usa Tryouts once in high school..

"Off. Right Mary. Murphy Ashley Adamson With You and I'm fired up to be back. I'm sad in a little bit away though that this is not a visual medium because the way that you were feeling that Intro Song Mary just now is something that I'm a little bit bomb. That other people at home are going to be able to see. Well I've got wrapped deep in my soul. That was very clear. That's what can I say the calm before the chaos that could be my middle name. That's right So if you're listening to the PODCAST FOR THE FIRST TIME. This is the first time what's wrong with you. Say Hello and welcome but also what the what the heck were you doing last winter And I'm glad you're here. I promise not to disappoint and already twenty twenty. It's going to be a better year for you twenty nineteen. I think. That's an obvious if you found this podcast in didn't listen to US last year to those who supported in less than last season love you and are back again. We love you. Thank you You're literally the reason that we are sitting here on a Tuesday afternoon doing this because this was all a big experiment last year the podcast and the resounding feedback to no one's surprise was that yeah. There are a ton of rabid women's basketball fans who want more coverage and in story so in the stories the teams individuals the coaches. What's going on the dynamics? There's so many stories to tell so. Many amazing student athletes It just makes me get calm and chaotic in my brain I love that and speaking of as athletes. We start with someone on our first guest. Today is the epitome of a student athlete. And I think Mary the easiest way for me and I was trying to figure out a way to like how do you encapsulate what Michaela pick? The Oregon State senior is all about and to me. It's like I want my daughter to grow up to be Mikhail Pelvic. That's the easiest way I can say of. Cora does that it. It'll be amazing but the student athletes and then I'm GONNA go slash human being if we can all aspire to be what she does and what. She spends her free time doing helping others in so many different than us of her life and her community. She's she's just a real inspiration. We're excited to talk to her. Yeah she's GonNa join us in about fifteen minutes and I guarantee even if you're a duck fan that by the end of this just give this interview a chance and I think by the end you'll you'll at least if you're not a full on faneuil of a soft spot for number zero in Corvallis moving forward we gotta a Divan because there's a ton to get to. Obviously this is the first part of the season and there's a ton that has happened. Since you and I were last together it would be completely impossible for us to get caught up on everything this season. But we're GonNa hit the big stories a couple of under the radar stories Including cupid shuffle. Which I'm really excited to hear about that. Some insight behind that we know for a lot of people. This is the first time that they're really starting to pay attention to college. Hoops not not everybody but for a lot of people holidays are over. Football SEASON IS OVER AND CONFERENCE. Play started so now is kind of when we're diving into the nitty gritty of it. So for those people Mary in particular who are just diving back into college basketball for you. What was the biggest story of NON CONFERENCE PLAY IN PAC? Twelve women's basketball. I think it has to be organs upset of team. Usa It happened on the ninth of November. Ninety three eighty six and only the second loss ever by Team USA to a college team. The last one was in nineteen ninety. Nine what were you doing in ninety nine against Tennessee And having called that game with an shots up at the mat it was a remarkable experience to watch to call and just to be a part of it it still. I can't really actually believe that. They pulled it off because I think when I was. I was in studio that day when they were playing. And we're watching. I'm like man. They're hanging tough. And Wow and you know Stanford at Oregon State had looked good in moments against them but all of a sudden you're watching Oregon. You're like they're they're gonNA beat team. Usa when you were calling at like at what point did you realize that was going to happen in the reality of it. Well there are a couple of minutes left and you felt it was going to happen Usa made a little bit of a rush. They just Iran and they just couldn't quite get over the Hump and then Sabrina sought to was just amazing and Ruthie was Ruthie and the combination as we know when they're on top of their game they're almost impossible to be and I'll throw the second piece at. Ya and we're definitely Oregon heavy at this point. The crowds you know in Eugene have been off the charts non-conference conference they played Corbin. You know right. Before in an exhibition game had ninety eight hundred people in the building in a game. That was a complete blow out this past weekend. Ten FIVE FOR COLORADO UTAH. It is almost a sell out for Stanford which will be in a couple of weeks and then the Oregon or stay at both venues completely sold out. I mean it is on. It is now it is happening in the state of Oregon in. It is just amazing. I mean it's not a better time to be a women's basketball fan on State Oregon. It is right now. Sabrina truly is and tell me if I'm wrong because obviously we're close to it but she's the face of college basketball and I'm not talking about just on the women's side I'm talking about women and men and the way her decision to come back and play her senior year and the unfinished business mantra What has it been like for you because you've had obviously a few of her games this year and a few organs games. What have you seen from her? There's just no there's no room. There's no wasted motion. There's not there's no time to talk it's about doing and I talked to at least Woodward who was On the games this weekend in Eugene and she just said the way that Sabrina and Ruthie came out it was like whatever verbs you would like to. Don't mess with US First. Quarter I tip. It's it's on and that's what unfinished business means. You didn't come back to just play around and play Patty cake. You came out to win if you can roll. You'RE GONNA roll people but you're going to get out there and compete for a national title. And that's the way they have started. Pac twelve play and it's They head to the desert next. But this is a team that everyone's got their eyeballs on. They've lost one game. I think that helped them. Sort of you know. Kind of get refocused. And that's what's going to happen but I just she's the best player in the country. Everyone knows her by her first name. So that's kind of special Ed and it's just exciting to watch. Just go out and it's a privilege isn't it to see the best player You know on one of the best teams in the country and you can watch that it's not the WNBA. It's right here. If you go see Sabrina and you can go see Oregon. Play like go. Buy A ticket and sit in the stands and and enjoy it. Be a part of it because it. It's fun now. It is. I think so much of life right is about timing and the fact that for whatever reason all of the things collided in that we're able to cover her in this moment in this year and that team it's special so obviously the League is stacked again and I feel like we say that every year but but truly this year there are you know four legitimate final four contenders for the top teams in the AP. Poll right now from the pack twelve obviously Oregon Oregon State Stanford and Ucla Arizona's eighteenth and Asu is receiving votes. So we've got one full weekend actual plan the books you were at Stanford Call both of their wins over Washington state and you will get to that in a minute but the marquee match release from this weekend was Sunday. Ucla and Arizona both teams coming in thirteen. Both off to their best starts in program history. It was tied at the half and then the Bruins came out and had a huge third quarter just looked like a almost like a different team and pulled away to win by twelve for you. What what was your biggest takeaway from that game? Just the ability. If you play Arizona. We all know. Area McDonald is one of the great players in the country. She's not flying under the radar anymore. Everybody knows you've got to slow down and the freshman guard out of winward. High-school Charisma Osborne that her job was. You need to guard this all American. This player of the year candidate and slow her down and in the end Mcdonald thousand of that. Ballgame Am I am I right on that? One I think and I know that I think I got the wrong game. I think that was it. That was the Asu Game. But just you've got to make her work harder. You've got to make every dribble every drive. Make it a challenge and this is a UCLA team that. I don't know if people knew they were for real. I think they're going to be okay but in talking to Corey yesterday. She just said every day. It's a new hero. Everyone's just waiting for the chance to step up and maybe a little bit of surprise that they've come so far but their defense the way they can change things up. Different people can score their veteran leadership of course to pristine with with what she's doing. So this is a team that you know we focus so much on the Oregon schools in Stanford but UCLA is just out there looming as a real good title contender. Yeah there's no doubt about it and I was talking to Anderson who called the game for us and she said that her biggest takeaway was that. Ucla looks like the complete team. Now and Corey close. You know apparently was they weren't really shooting that well from the outside and then their last three games. That's that's been different. So if they get that going and then again Chrismas. Born lookit freshman. She's only going to get better as the as the year progresses. It's early January and you can't talk about ucla without Michaela Michaela onion. We're not wearing out. See a different way. Thank you kate. Scott for getting to the to the heart of that one but the double double machine. Just what the different positions that she can play and how every game every practice. She improves and just wonder where she going to be when this when she's done because she just does things in each she just leaves you like. Wow that special. Yeah now it's It's GonNa mentioning to see what is able to put together by the end of the year in Westwood. All right. There's another special team special freshman. And it's one that you've gotten to know real well obviously Stanford called both of their games this past week and I know you've had them a bunch being in the bay area. The freshman we so much about them on media Dan coming into the season and just the highest ranked recruiting class. And all the rest. What's been your biggest takeaway as you've watched friendly and Jones in this young new group. Kind of come in along with some veteran pieces that Tara has well. I think what has surprised me about Stanford is playing for so much of the season without Dj Carrington who is on every watchlist. There is in the country without the inside. Presence of my Datsun. Six three all that experience. She's got the foot problem. You take those two veterans out and this team is still in the top five. It's it's remarkable you know Sitting calling games with Kate Scott or with Chris blog in your three freshmen are on the floor to freshmen are on the floor. With with soft more Alexi halls plan a lot lacey halls coming back and sort of the glue that that's keeping a lot of this together of course. Scana Williams and she was absolutely at her best on Sunday whether they went manner zone her ability to find creases get open in the way she gets to the Rim and just helps organize things and there's no doubt that.
