RE: 2017-18 Women's Basketball Thread
After a competitive game at Elon, who was picked second, they had a disappointing performance to open home CAA play against W&M.

I think they are doing well, considering they still have a lot of pieces to fill. Looks to me, with three staff members with successful head coaching experience, the best is yet to come.

The Ladies dropped a close one tonight on the road, 72-71 to Towson. This despite Madison Raque's 29 points on 10-19 shooting (6-12 from 3) and Lacey Suggs adding 21 points.

We fall to 0-5 in league play. Our next shot at getting Coach Barefoot her first CAA win will be @ Drexel on Sunday afternoon.

The ladies got blown out at home by Delaware tonight, 82-49. The Seahawks fall to 0-7 in league play.

It doesn't get any easier on Sunday, as JMU, 6-0 in the league and # 86 in the RPI, comes to town.

What happened here? Honest question. They seem to have the opposite problem of the Men's team. they played much better out of conference.

Our non-conference schedule wasn't particularly challenging. Which was kind of a good thing; this program needed to build some confidence. But our BEST win was a home victory over ECU....current RPI # 250. 3 of our other 4 wins came against teams outside the Top 300.

Then, you enter league play, against the # 10 league in the country (last year - # 8), and bam.....wakeup call comes. We did play Towson close on the road (72-71 L). In fact, our first 5 CAA losses were each by single digits. But we just can't seem to get over the hump yet.

I think we do have a team capable of winning some league games this year, but the last 6 years of this program struggling prior to Coach Barefoot's arrival really put us behind the other teams in this league. It'll take some time before we can expect to be a legitimate contender.

I thought we may have played some weak teams OOC but don't follow it close enough to know one way or another.

I'm gonna trust that this is the growing pains of Barefoot's first season at the helm of what hasn't been a very good women's program. Hopefully she'll be able to build on that OOC success, the adversity from conference play this year, and we'll start seeing results next year. Barefoot is a solid coach. She deserves time to mold this program.

0-8 after a home loss to JMU. Ugh.

We definitely will have our chances to win some league games this year, however. 2 games against Charleston, and a home game against Towson should yield a win or even 2 or 3. And there should be a surprise win or 2 somewhere down the line.

Madison Raque and Lacey Suggs are struggling in particular lately, but if they can get their confidence back, that'll be huge.
