"Either both very good receivers. Watson to be my top 10 Church to me, was always Mean church was kind of an underappreciated wide receiver. But man Oh man in terms of his punt return ability He and and I said this before the show he and Billy White shoes Johnson were the two best punt returners of their generation. I've told this story before my rookie year was a punt gunner. Which means you're one of the guys lined up out wide in your job is to As soon as the ball snapped. Get your fanny down the field and make a play on the return guy. Well. Back then you could cut you could cut That guy. Which, nowadays they don't let you blocking below the waist. We played in Denver. Rick Upchurch ran not one but two punts for touchdowns back while you were the gunner and on correct and I'm one of the returns. I got knocked off my feet. Is either three or four times I got cut. Wow. I mean, he was he was. I don't necessarily think it was. Totally my fault. But he was he was just a superb return day. Had one really good year. Um, as a wide receiver 64 catches 937 yards. Yeah, that's a good year. Seven. Touchdown. Yeah, Yeah, yeah. But you're right. He was primarily a returned guy. Although yeah. 24 touchdowns receiving? Yep. Yeah. Talk about versatility. That's good. Total yards. Yeah. I never I never considered him a wide receiver. I knew he was a really good return guy, though. As we wait for Denver his entire career. Um 75 through 83. Yeah, he got Thought he got traded and then retired. Could be ready to happen. But he didn't play with anybody for another chair. Yeah. There's an interesting story. We've talked about Chauncey Billups, becoming the head coach of the Portland Trail Blazers. Of course, Becky Hammond, who played his C issue. She was. She was one of the names that we heard a lot about in in that process. In fact, it may have come down to Becky Hammond or chancy Billups. Hammond is a an assistant coach. With Gregg Popovich was San Antonio. Um, so there's a report now. On the spun It talks about why, In the estimation, this is bleacher report. Excuse me, Jake Fisher of bleacher Report. Is reporting that Hammond was quote generally liked. Unquote by blazer, staff members, and they were impressed with her interview, but after a deeper dive into her tenure with the Spurs, They found things. That quote were not nearly as complementary unquote. So the insight the Trailblazers got from the deep dive led them to believe that she wasn't the ideal candidates. Their impending conflict with Star Point guard Damian Lillard made them want somebody who can quote handle delicate. Waters. Hammond impressed and again, I quote Hammond press Portland officials. It was generally liked among blazer staffers. But when Portland reached out for Intel from San Antonio, figures the background on him and was not nearly as complementary pertaining to various aspects of day to day coaching responsibilities. That sentiment has been echoed by sources around the league. Blazers personnel then cast out that Hammond was the candidate to steer the ship through such delicate waters with Lillard. So interesting. Yeah. Yep, I'm kind of surprised We haven't had a female NBA coach. At this point if there's been some great ones. Over the years, she would be, I think a logical candidate she's she's worked closely with Popovich in Popovich, at least publicly, has raved about her. She seems to have a really Good demeanor on the sideline. Um, but here here's the story in bleacher report in terms of You know again. I dislike those stories because You know, they come from anonymous sources right and it can make it look like I mean that that's It's not something she will not be able to overcome. But that's not a good story for her to be out there in terms of one of the reasons or maybe the reason Portland didn't decide to hire So 719510 Dave. I still think Hammond will take over from Popovich in San Antonio could be Yep. That can happen. 72376. I was at that game Went up. Church returned two punts for touchdowns. I was a kid. My dad took me What a great memory. So much for me, but Glad I'm glad it was for you. God, who is the greatest female basketball coach of all time as a pet summit. Does you mean? A female coach or a coach of a female. No, a female coach. Well, Pat Summitt would have to come up there. Um, I think the Baylor coach who just recently switched jobs. I can't Kim Mulkey would be up there. The Stanford coached Tara is a VanDerveer. Uh, yeah. Tara VanDerveer? Yep. I think she'd be up there one more than 900 career games. That's a lot of games had summit. 1000 Vivian Stringer. Maybe Vivian Stringer, coach to Rutgers. I believe Do any of these women have like NBA aspirations? I wonder. Not. Maybe not. Not that I've heard. Yeah. Would. Would it be difficult for a Woman because of her sex, too. Be in the locker room with these all of these guys and Would they respect the coach? I don't think she'd have a problem being in the locker room. I think whether or not the guy's respected her Um Would Be centered around. You know what sort of philosophies does she have? Can she get the best out of those players? Um, what happens You know you you you want to? You want to make sure you take care of your players? You also you have to have the ability and this is to me in the NBA, especially this is the balancing act. Act. You want to be able to drive them to like we got to work on things in practice? Well, sometimes guys don't feel like working in practice and NBA players, all with or the majority of which have guaranteed contracts. So you've got to you got to pick and choose your battles. I don't think they have any problem with her. If they felt like she knew what she was doing, she knew the game. She knew how to coach the game. She understood what players are going through. I don't I don't think Her sex would be a negative at all. I'm thinking these college coaches, though, Would they respect that? They these women knew the NBA game. Well, that's that's the thing right? Yeah, that's the thing even for college coaches. There's only been to my knowledge, there's only been one division one college coach that won an N C double a title and also won an NBA title as a coach. Pitino? Nope. Latino wanted in college.

"Twenty the basketball of fame has been announced as you've said many times it's not an NBA hall of fame is a basketball hall of fame Kobe Bryant fifteen time all star cordially Kobe Bryant's in there Tim Duncan is in there Kevin Garnett Eddie Sutton Kentucky Oklahoma state route eighteen to make Catchings among the of folk is far as greatest of all time I just I did a quick look today two thousand nine is among many X. is seen as maybe the best Michael Jordan David Robinson John Stockton Jerry Sloan Vivian stringer there are many that I looked at today that are are really really good less feet Maravich Walt Frazier Rick Perry in nineteen eighty seven Nash Steve Nash Jason Kidd grant hill mo cheeks ray Allen of two thousand eighteen two thousand eight was Ewing allows you want daily bill Davidson nineteen eighty Jerry Lucas Jerry west Oscar Robertson so there's a lot of great ones but among the top three in twenty twenty and Brian Duncan and guard at that's for darn good yeah I think the the Oscar Jerry west today to butcher was also on that yes date to usher went on to be the you know commissioner the ABA after he was done what great player in the NBA as a player coach with the pistons so I mean obviously great players but this one but when you look at it is for your age you know just the stats in the all star game appearance is not even close I mean Kobe Bryant Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett combined for forty eight all star game appearances and Kevin Garnett was an excellent player fifteen time all star and a very good defender buddy won the one championship Kobe and jam one five each on the Adam up eleven championship just those three players and take Richie out of it really was good player and obviously a two time NBA championship coach but if you look at it as though it's just an NBA hall of fame I have a Kobe HM and and K. G. eleven NBA championships four MVPs in forty eight all star game appearance is the forty eight all star again appearances are far and away the most I mean ten one fifteen times internet would fifteen Tyson Kobe went fifteen times or whatever was so it's just it's it's an incredible class we know about Kobe Bryant we talk so much about him while he was flying after he retired we were there any other retired both of his numerals eight and twenty four with the warriors and obviously what happened in late January and his passing and the memorial we've talked a lot about Kobe I think Kobe Bryant outside of Michael Jordan's the best perimeter player to ever play and I think Tim Duncan because I saw the early stages of his career hi my all time NBA five is Michael and Colby Leri at small forward Tim Duncan at power forward and Kareem at center and Tim Duncan I think it and a lot of ways he's just so and I was texting my spurs friends when he got a and I made the point I think is the most underrated player of all time they came back with a group tax was pretty rated immediately yeah I mean obviously he's a first ballot hall of Famer and I but I I just don't you know bill Russell was thought to be the greatest winner in the history of the NBA anyway he was M. eleven championships in thirteen years the true at USF the the the gold medal in fifty six all of it but I I really believe that that jam into some respects was this generation's bill Russell L. as the spurs were good but they they could not get over the top and it was like the Celtics they they had all the pieces around the around the center position they just did not have that center position and Tim Duncan just everything that he did it also allow David Robinson to change his role where David slid over and became more bill Russell where all we need from you now is shot blocking rebounding I mean you could not get a shot off against the spurs and if you missed it they were gonna get the defensive rebound and they were gonna get in the open floor and if they had to play in the half court I mean I saw it so many times because you called the play right in front of me and blocked my vision is for opted for down for up as Jim Duncan and I saw the left bloc in for up is the right block and Jim could score anyway you wanted to he could face you up and go Sam Jones Scotty Pippin and bank at A. N. he could walk you down and score with either hand that a jump hook you could run pick and roll with them a little bit of a problem with double teams in turnovers for like one practice and they solve that members first ever NBA preseason game he tore Chris Webber's **** open he just out played and it was like wow Tim Duncan look like Brad Daugherty to me is first game he ever played like a twelve time NBA all star like right away so I think him just gets overlooked a lot I think he's that good of a player so when you put Kobe Bryant amp jam Duncan into the same class you're talking about ten NBA championships they each one five that's why it bugs me would lebron they go right to the comparisons to Michael Jordan lebron why we're not talking about Kobe and and and and Michael and why don't we we do we obviously did a jam I think it gets all over looks because he saw one on assuming any other big fundamental he'd like to talk to you know I'm anxious to see a speech off we will be able to hear it but it's going to be sad because now you know it's gonna be about Kobe Bryant obviously and his passing away died too young and he certainly deserves it but when they announced the hall of fame class and I watched it on NBA TV live and watched I was on the S. P. N. actually watched it all live but when CNN reported on it it was the Kobe Bryant made the hall of fame and they they just mention that even match the names others they never even mentioned how great of a player Tim Duncan was now Kevin Garnett was a very skilled player he could not went alone in Minnesota I actually went to Boston and he probably should've gone early in his career Tim is a better player than Kevin Garnett although I have heard some people say that card that's the best power forward of all time it's ridiculous but in any event I you know there are other classes that are close to what I think to butcher and Oscar in Jerry because Oscar Jerry came into the NBA together were part of the nineteen sixty epic team with coach Noel they meant so much to the league and a class that Michael is involved in any one in which I was locked in and David Robinson about Kobe is a check below Michael and Tim Duncan is better that either Stockton or Robinson so I I would have to say just from the NBA names that are on this list it it's the best hall of fame class of all time yeah that's right up there because like you said I was looking at all the classes and they're just so many good players but as you pointed out you don't think about Duncan too because I was I was on a on a on a beat for the jazz then and he alone would have so many games but he would dominate in but I think it was like you said market size he didn't talk a whole lot you here don't I think most people when your friends say he's pretty highly rated he is as a power forward but then when you expand the conversation out to greatest of all time which he should be in the conversation or or top you know in that in that line up of all time five you don't hear him as much because when you think of the power forwards there were more dynamic it was in I'm not saying there's good but Barkley was loud Malone style of play all those different kind of things Duncan was better it's just given market size given how quiet he was you don't see him beyond the power for discussion I don't see it and I don't you know what he didn't even play power forward when he first came into the NBA and they are the twin towers together it was David chan and that in that set up a base because pop called for down but it could have been five down unifies the center for the power forward but they would enter changes basically David was not great in the posting was too skinny so they would play a lot of high low action where David would feed the ball into jam or you know sometimes they double post and David B. on one posted Jan would be on the other but it was easier to double off the big with David's guy just leaving him to come over and double Duncan so pop didn't want that he wanted more of a spread out but actually after David Robinson retired Tim Duncan was the center so really weak we say because it's four down and more often pop never change the call it but Kim played most of his career at center then he did it at at power forward it's just I'm trying to get him on my all time team sama playing the power forward but really if you look at the breakdown most of his NBA minutes by far where it shattered they were just a power for probably only when he was on the floor with David simultaneously otherwise he played five but if you get into five discussion not as much as I love jam a larger one was that good of a player I mean I I honestly if I had to pick a team I I maybe would put Akeem at power forward over champ and play him next occurring but it came as a senator kind of what he could do everything he was amazing as much as I love Kim became allies always that good of a player not throughout the entirety of his career Kim was so good at the moment he got in the league right away he can obviously slow down later in his career but a larger one he was raw offensively he was not a great offense a player took a few years to get there Memon collagen well I college I will I remember doing a sureties game against Houston if I slam jam he was just raw he got better and better like Ewing and I was raw and young and pretty good offensively but in any event I mean Dunkin you know Eddie Albert Hayes was a hell of a good power forward however there are a lot of guys there were great powerful position change that's it for you know again for younger list visit just change these matters anymore says that a state Kerr points all the time the one position on the floor has probably changed more than earnings power forward that's why Andrew Wiggins at power forward he's not power for me I mean it was it was an act the card Karl Malone hello to kill so but I I mean the point is Tim Duncan was that that great of a player and so under rated I think but maybe to some that know the game and know what a great winner he was he's right there but you may call me I mean you're talking Kobe and Tim Duncan John Evan that's arguably two of the all time starting five in the history of the NBA and won the hall of fame class in one of England's pubs is two thousand twenty class could be the best of all time it was a great piece of ESPN wrote at the end of last week which

And I think you have to put alley peppered right at the top of the list on that. Yeah. Couple of transfers for Terry Moore in that have made a huge impact in Pat Burg and also Brenna wise and Indiana was one of those last teams in right? They were into the debatable eight, and so then you get this energy. Once you say, okay now, we're in and you have nothing to lose, right? Those teams are always the most interesting to watch you mentioned you mentioned Rutgers. And obviously know sad news coming out that that coach Vivian stringer will not be doing her team for the NCAA tournament as she continued to wrestle our prayers to her. But ruckers doesn't look like they're really messing around despite not having your head coach and possibly being inspired. I love stace Kerry. Does Rutgers really have what it takes without Seve on the sideline to pull them up sets. Well, I think what they have. They have CVS stringers spirit within them. She has taught them well and not just the players, the coaches, and the coaches have held their team accountable to the expectations of of CVS stringer and what she expects from them. So with that being said, Tim eat men implemented there fifty five defense about two weeks prior to the big ten turnament initially. They had said that Vivian stringer would return for the TA tournament. But like you said the news came out last week that she would not be returning. But I think they implemented that fifty five to assure that they would get into the NCAA tournament. And it's time for her to come back. But I think with that fifty five defense if you haven't seen it you guys. I mean, it is swarming. I know in their last five games, they had one hundred six steals because if you five and I mean when you're steals not just the flex. We're talking about feels and going. The other way. So this is a record team when you're in March madness, your defense has to come through for you and for Rutgers whenever you say the word Rutgers. That's just it personify defense. I mean, you think Rutgers you think defense you think that fifty five they had done it. They were intermittent with it at the beginning of the year kind of went away from it mid season. And then got it back right in time for the strong momentum push to secure three seed in the big ten tournament. So when you have records now at a seventy and they're gonna take on buffalo, which is going to be a great match up and they've had a fantastic season. And of police ya like a Jack shoe back difference in job with an emotional pride moment after winning that MAC championship. But I just think when you have a team like Rutgers who will present some strong defensive energy and pride you can never count that out. I don't care how your shooting the ball. I know against Maryland during. The regular. I mean during the big ten portion of the season they upset Maryland at Maryland hitting nine threes. Your shots not always gonna fall. But what you can bring all the time is that lockdown defense that trapping swarming. Run jump situation full court that you have to contend with. And you have to break it every single time or you're going to be in big trouble. So you have to be on your Ps and qs when you're playing against Rutgers, especially in that full court presentation, it can be exhausting, absolutely exhausting, which arrived. Buffalo will be fun watching Dillard..

"I wanted to go back to the the black history month thing and just how important it is to have African American women involved on the coaching side. What in your opinion needs to be done to to? So that we can have more voices like Vivian stringer, or, you know, more black women coaching women. I mean at the end of the day. And I think at the right now, the WNBA is at least seventy five percent African American women or women of color and college basketball, very high numbers, even I don't have those. But we don't see the women coaching. What has to happen for for this to change? I mean, it's the same thing that has to happen for women to coach in male dominated professional sports. And I'm not just talking about basketball, but females coaching in general getting opportunities what male dominates force? There has to be a pipeline. And what I've learned so far being coaching and coaching the men, and what I've learned and just different stories from not just coach Curry's. But a lot of stories is people hire people that they have relationships with. And I believe, and this is just me I feel like African American women aren't in those spaces and don't have those relationships with athletic directors athletic director's going to reach out to people they know, and I'm not I don't necessarily like a lot. Some people may feel like is racism at some point or some people may just feel whatever the reasons are. But across the board even working in the nonprofit, I was able to get my job because of someone I knew and I had a relationship with so bottom line. You know, you have African American women have to attend these coaches conferences develop more relationships and try to I mean, it's on us. And I know every American women will say they we have to just always take extra steps and work extra hard and speaking of black history month, if I mean, even President Obama said, yeah, we've made strides, but we still have a long long way to go. And I think the perception once you have social media and Twitter that oh everybody's doing. Okay. You don't have. To work as hard anymore. No. There really hasn't changed. You still have to do a little bit extra a little bit more. But I think it's just relationships, and I think as eighties, and hey coaches being comfortable about developing just those relationships across the board and the same with like, a, you know, NBA like how you saw NBA all star having those forms and having those open panels where people can't women can actually network when GM and head coaches and have forma conversation because that in his day in coaching to get a head coaching job and get assistant coach coaching. We wanna hire people that you trust and hire people that you have a relationship with and understand what you're all about. And so I think that's the that's the big deal. When a lot of like, you said, the majority aren't African Americans coaching, women's basketball or men's basketball, general, it's because a lot of coaches AD's hiring people that they know they have relationships with and. You can go down the line. I mean, people used to make fun of me growing up all the time. And thank God for my parents. But as diverse in, you know, as they can make me be they made me, you know, spend time with the other races and not like segregate myself, and so at the same time I learned how to develop relationships, especially at NC state coming into a majority white university. You know, I had to learn how to you know, develop relationships with them. And so I think that's that's where that's where it starts. Absolutely. My last piece for you just because I I know that there will be young women listening to this podcast that want to be in your space. If they want to coach men if they had that same pithy that you've had just any one piece of advice. And I know that there was something that your dad told you I wanna go back to the National Basketball wives association in their women's empowerment summit where you were honored as. Who is evolving in business you along with Deborah leave leash Butterfield Jones, Courtney, I'm not gonna mess up your last name..

"I was in playoff when I got receive the Email that said I made it into the summer program for the NBA system coaches program. So I already was you know, kind of transition my cell phone and building myself 'cause I when I signed up for the program. It was like oh an opportunity to learn the game and be around elite mindset of the game. And I was like this will make me a better coach, you know, for whoever I get an opportunity to work for and from that I got in the program, and I just was like fell in love with it in the supported the NBA and my other NBA mentors. And I kind of just started moving ahead of people really fast with all of my background on in coaching both states in internationally. And what was the most impactful part of the NBA, co assistant coaches program in your opinion. Just the respect this respect level of the coaches the organizations and the players, you know, I it's kinda cool. You know, when you have a former NBA player, you know, that will call me and say, hey, SIS, hey, can you help me with the scouting report? Or hey, you know, can you help me edit this video or learn as technologies, so it's a great program because it brings both men and women former players in the WNBA an NBA that have a passion for coaching. But it also sets us up as like, I'm a mentor now on the program. And it sets me sets me up with other foreign players both women and men that I can then P and help them through this process. And you know, we gain a a relationship and a trust in a bond, and it's like. If we go on to be head coaches, you know, we have a pool of people that we've been working with and building, you know, our coaching brand together with from the ground up, which is a great opportunity for coaches to have trustworthy, assistant coaches that they've already built this relationship with. And we both know I was actually just on Twitter commenting that black women in particular are often left out of the circles of of opportunity because we're not always or not consistently invited to those conversations to those networks in places where you know, we can earn trust which eventually leads to hiring and other opportunities. But also where we can kind of change the conversation around black women in general right how we don't control our own images. But we also don't get the opportunity to change the perception of black women, which is would just challenging what part of that. I mean, it's black history month, and and we've talked about, you know, some of the women that have gone before you, and, you know, just we're looking at, you know, obviously, c Vivian stringer who holds the bar for women's coaches, women African American coaches on that side of things, but also Carolyn peck and on. Staley what you know, so many have gone on to do. But we're what are some of the challenges that you think the next generation of women that are coming along those that are contacting you those that are playing college basketball or WNBA right now that one a coach what are some of the challenges that they have to be ready to overcome..

"See how much you could say. Well, this time last week. The pro football hall of fame committee was sitting down trying to figure out the class of thousand nineteen. They emerged from that. With three guys that we knew we were going to be I Bala guys. And that of course, was twenty Alice, Ed Reed and champ Bailey. And of course, the senior candidate Johnny Robinson got in the two contributor candidates, Pat bolan gillibrand got in. So essentially there were two spots left. Okay. There were two spots left. And we we're doing all the speculation on who they could be and as a turnout simply because of Kerry Rhodes on the broadcast at this time last week they chose to carry roads teammates days where the jets Kevin. Hawaiian isla. Yes. How is that field to have to are you going to go to teammates? Yeah. Probably go talk to tie tie was ecstatic. Obviously, it's it's the guy. That's really deserve. A really good player. Really smart player. The the really good guy deserved it. Then kevin. Why he didn't? He didn't make it as I time. But got in the second second go around and very emotional talk to him as well. I mean, he's right now with the coaching and out there with her male words coaching out there. But this to really class guy that really good guys that look up to as a as a young player for myself. I'm really really really excited for those guys. Well, believe it or not as far as how many years both of those guys have been eligible for their fifth year of eligibility. They're both Tyler Ammon. Kevin why? And by the way, they have both moving up the charts. And if you if you do pay attention to the voting it really should have come a no surprise, Milwaukee was selected over the other three offensive linemen. Again, a center over the two guards Steve Hutchinson and Allen fan. And then, of course, the great Tony Boselli only played seven years a tackle. And then tie law. We knew this. We talked about this last week. If you have champ Bailey is a first ballad guy has to go in with them. He actually has one more interception. A few more yards. He's got the three rings with New England. But they bypass the two safeties and Steve atwater John Lynch in favor of Thai law, and I'm sure that was the discussion in the room like if we're gonna let champion, and I remember, I think five with ties with one of the longest he was the longest. I'm sure they brought up the fact that he won and then in the yards and the guy had I mean, the numbers were too to comparable to not have them in. Yeah. Bypass, again, the coaches, Don coryell and Tom floors, and I talked to a lot of people from the hall of fame about that including in our own Alex Martinez. And he said, there's a movement afoot. They got to separate the coat just like they did with the contributors. They created a contributor category. You can't when there's so many players such a backlog of players Steve atwater should have been the hall of fame years ago. Maybe he will be, but I mean, putting the coaches in with players, it just doesn't make any sense. They have to separate the coaches, and there's a movement afoot, thankfully for the Coriolis. The floors is the Jimmy Johnson's the, you know, a lot of coaches that are deserving a look at the hall of fame. So that would be a good movement. Speaking a hall of fame next week with the the all star game they will announce the finalist for induction into the Naismith Basketball Hall of fame. And this has been such a source of frustration for me over the years. The Naismith hall of fame is not the NBA hall of fame. There is no such thing as the NBA hall of fame. I like when I hear NBA hall of Famer, there's no such thing. But the Basketball Hall of fame is for everyone women international players even in duct teams. I mean, it just sort of this hodgepodge. But here's my frustration. There is a separate women's Basketball Hall of fame. There is a separate college Basketball Hall of fame. There's a separate fee for international Basketball Hall of fame. There's no EMMY hall of fame. So I was thinking about this target about the other day if we were to start an NBA hall of fame day one I would have a ten player class. Maybe coaches on the sideline ten player class here. The first ten players in the NBA hall of fame drum roll, no general, the two most significant pioneers, George Mike and Bob Cousy that's to Bill Russell Wilt Chamberlain, Oscar Robertson, Jerry West Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Larry Bird, Magic Johnson. And Michael, Jordan. Boom. There's your first ten, and then I might stay with a ten person classwork couple years until you play a little catch up next class would have the Elgin Baylor's on the pets and Carl Malone's guys like that. But this is ridiculous. Having a Basketball Hall of fame where you have a Vivian stringer standing next to Michael Jordan as they were back in the day on. I mean, that's that's ridiculous. Yeah. I mean, it's I guess by the rules like you said, it's not an MBA when it's the the Basketball Hall of fame. Oh, yeah. I mean, that's a very very very. Influence a person, you know, there's many many coaches in the Basketball Hall of fame is our players. Now, imagine that in the hall of football or baseball hall of fame. We have as many managers are coaches are players yet in the Basketball Hall of fame. Apparently, the coaches do everything players don't do anything just pawns out there for these great coaches, they keep throwing into the hall of fame. Right. You know, me get all worked up at all the hall of fame and everything else better go bra briefing. We're in the guy go Fox Sports radio studios.

"A group of interesting transfers and new addition, you know, you talk about freshman, the youth and inexperience will there's some new faces for Rutgers that are tearing through the big ten. They're undefeated in league play number fourteen this week in the top twenty five, but the only Cryer statia Kerry Cryer. A is a transfer from Georgia Tech and stationed a Carey is a transfer from Pittsburgh, so new places new faces but having a lot of success for Vivian stringer. The big ten is is crazy the SEC's had some moments. But is there anything or any team where he player right now? Rebecca that stands out to you is a no, you're always just watching the landscape. You know, I think a team that we haven't talked enough about. And maybe it's a west coast thing is Stanford. They're really could they're really good on the offensive end. It would not surprise me. One. Bit is Stanford is in the final four this year. And I know talk a lot about what we're gonna because they're really good and out of the pack twelve but Stanford is team that every time I watch them. They impressed me a close game at Arizona state, and I knew flipping through the channels and in came upon that, you know, near the end of the game and everytime. Arizona state made a play Stanford responded, and they just struck me as a team. All right. This is a group that knows how to win. This is a group that knows how to make big plays. And and they're they're a team that that's that's really interesting to me, you mentioned Marquette, you know, this is the year when that's freshman class came in and all those guys were starting and they were young talented. Well, now, they're seasons in pallets it. And and I thought you tweeted about it, you know, when they brought Mississippi State to the wire, you know, everybody else who's. Just learning about Marquette, you better learn about Marquette 'cause you've been covering in China for the last four years, and and they're interesting team to me and you brought up NC state. Yeah. What's more as a remarkable job is the only undefeated team left right now. And they've got a stretch it starts right around Valentine's Day, and it lasts a week where they have sleep games in particular that are going to be tough. They've got Syracuse Notre Dame and and Louisville kind of in a two week stretch. And we're gonna learn about them. But they also have Clemson coming up in clumps as a team that you know, is so much improved for last year this year. So, you know, it's it's just it's a fun year to kind of pay attention to everything. That's that's been going on. Yes. So so much going over Becca.

"And for the most part, they're learning. How to how to win those close games? Is you con as good this year as they've been in the past few years. I don't think so. No, can they still win a national championship? Yeah. I think they can. But you know, what? What's so exciting? I think for us covering the game. Is that for the first time, and as long as I can remember like I look at the people, and I'm going down, you know, number one. Yeah, they can win the whole thing. They can win the whole thing. They can win the whole like I get down to I don't know seven or eight teams that I think can win the national championship this year. And and on the men's side, maybe that wouldn't say a lot, but on the women's side. It does you know in the past, however, many years, it's always been this team and everybody else like when's the last time we got to the final four and didn't have an undefeated team or. Didn't have a team that was an absolute prohibitive favorite to win the national championship. It's really long time. And so this year, it's exciting to me because it's like, okay, you comes down a little bit, but they could still win Baylor. Yeah. They could win the whole thing. Win the whole thing. Like, Oregon Stanford. Yep. Yep. I believe they can win the whole thing. Like, it's just it's it's it's getting there. And and it's been it's been fun. As a result to watch these games. Now, you say that you don't think you con- it as good as they have been the last two years is that talent is that you like what is it that makes you that brings you to that conclusion? Well, they need a lot from a freshman and sophomore Chris Williams is going to have to play well for them. You know, you you trust implicitly, you know, they're juniors and seniors get you know, what you're going to get from Katie was famous in the face, a call your everyday Christopher Dangerfield is going to bring what she brings Meghan. Walker has been a little bit more consistent. I think if Meghan Walker had shot the ball, well and played better, you kind of beat Baylor. I think that the beginning of that game. If she made some of her. Early shots. It would change the tone of it. And then off the bench, you know, last year that has the race Steven's coming enough event that right there made the better team livelier, you know, then they are this year. They they don't have even that six player who comes in and make a real real impact. So they just you know, they're little younger than they've been and even thinner than they've been. And you know, we're seeing seeing some Volna abilities in certain matchups, especially you know, we saw it against Baylor. You know with with the big players, so, but that's okay. And that's gonna be fun. And that's gonna it's gonna make things even more interesting. Yes, it has been a fun race. I'm just looking down the top twenty five right now thinking about some things that stand out to me definitely NC states undefeated teammate, Tina, no despite injuries that should have ravaged them now. Yes. They're scheduled real their schedule ratchet up another notch in the next week or two which would tell us a lot about the wolf pack, but west more has to be leading the coach. Of the year conversation from a national standpoint Marquette is a number ten team this week and Caroline Keith. Or seniors that group finally has figured things out. Right. I mean Elysee blocked in teasha hide him in. We saw flashes of greatness their first three seasons. And they've had a ton of success when it comes to the historical perspective for the golden eagles. But they have just been beating biggies teams by twenty thirty points. So they could be scary team. If they move into the postseason with that kind of confidence. Rutgers is a t that a lot of people are surprised about Vivian Stringer's. Got he she strung together..
"vivian stringer" Discussed on Around the Rim
"I think they have a lot of similarities, actually, I think that this team this year has better guard play across the board more debt at the guard position in my opinion. They have as you already mentioned, Meghan Gustafsen. She's just dominant. She's she's beyond the best player that's ever played at Iowa. So I think when they're clicking and we talked about this in studio yesterday that that's when the guards are clicking for. I wa that's their factor. Obviously Gustafsen is going to be Gustafsen every single night. You're gonna get those double double double double numbers out of her. But they've got a good solid point guard in Kathleen Doyle, she can be a little bit inconsistent at times and that kind of maybe what's shaky sometimes about this Iowa team. But the insertion of tonight Davis, she's healthy. Now, she put on a show last night against Minnesota. She makes Doyle better she makes everybody around her better, and you've got three point shooting. She obviously choose the three, but then the dishes of Meyer and civilian when those two are on three point and three point shot is falling. This is the best Iowa team. I've seen maybe in a long very long time back to Vivian stringer day, really. Really? That's a bold statement. They're better than the magic teams. Yeah. I think like I said, I think they have more dump that that guard position. And I think the thin makes them even better because she's by far better than any post player that that has played. And and and don't that's no disrespect any other post players Bethany do little was the senior post player with that group when they went to the Sweet Sixteen and and she was a great solid reliable post player, but she was not dominant like Meghan Gusta finis. I love tonight Davis. I mean five three she just has a fire to her a lot of Iowa players lease. I haven't I just have that that grit that fire like, you know, they're very well coast. Lisa bloom is one of my favorites. Okay. She coaches the mental game anybody that coaches the mental game. I'm all there with you. Like, she does a great job with her teens, but they usually are very fundamental. Sand. But tonight just has something different. You know in terms of how she plays the game that brings a spark that I think is is just fantastic. And if fits there, so well giftable of the hump, I think sometimes, but I think that is a that's interesting that you think that's this could be the best team since trigger dates. I wanted to move. Over to talk about Minnesota. Because you know, they started in I'm gonna spare Blake on this because we want him to get along with wife at night. Minnesota had a great start. You know, everyone's like, wow, Waylon doing that. Great. You know, they did have ranked win over Syracuse. But they've they've lost four in a row. Lisa. I don't you know, is it just maybe that non-conference type in that the conference play is that hard. But what are you making of what we're Minnesota's right now? Get rid of that head coach man's. He doesn't know any basketball. She's got. Wail at some just like to give her a hard time. No. You know, here's my concern about in a soda when they started out twelve no is I just always questioned where they tested enough in the non conference to learn enough about themselves, and in my opinion, they played a less than Fallon djing non conference schedule and that was already set up team and and not the new coaching staff. But I really only felt like they got tested with the rink there accused team. And so I really didn't even know what to expect from Minnesota, and rightfully so everyone was excited about the gophers for all the right reasons Lindsay Whalen factor. The fact that they have some of the most exciting players in the conference when you start with canoe chevelle, so all of those right reasons, you know, I don't anyone for for for hopping on the Minnesota bandwagon. However, I just had questions about it. And and here's the deal. I just don't think they have much of a defensive identity yet. We all know that Marlene stallings was not a man to man. Defense. And so they just they primarily they all all they did was plays zone. And so now, you have Lindsay Whalen coming in shifting that defensive mentality and those defensive philosophies, and and you're not going to see instant success in that in my opinion..
