Injuries are in fact our issue right now. Watching the game you would see that first Tera and Taya (our leading scorers from the past 2 seasons) have yet to play together. You would also note that Olga has not played a game this season so far (a consistent 3 point shooter and good on ball defender). So while yes these losses do not look good on paper, these are not just bottom of the barrel teams, these are contenders for their respective conference as well as teams that are in similar situation as us (BC brought the bulk of their squad from last season) and everyone knows that our success last season came from how deep our bench was as well as the chemistry. Currently with injuries, we are not able to benefit from either of these. Once we get past the bump and bruises and actually get a couple practices where the whole team is participating, I am sure we will get back on track.
I know injuries have certainly been a factor. I've heard other things as well. That not withstanding, no one expects a 35 point blow-out by Boston College especially after the SH debacle. BC is 4-2 and was handled easily by Holy Cross and Providence. A veteran team even with some injury issues should at least be competitive. With the way we shoot the ball allowing 87 points against an unranked team won't work. TO's and assists also needs serious work. BC had 24 dimes, we had 6 I believe.

What else have you heard if you don’t mind?

Also note you only get assists if someone scores. With one top scorer still rehabbing, another one recovering from a hand/wrist injury, and one of our best deep threats is hurt too. It’s easy to see why scoring may be an issue at the moment

All these issues tie back to the fact that we have not had our Whole Team together since before Official Practice started in September.

I understand the injury situation. Most programs have similar experiences over time. It's not necessarily about wins. It's about being competitive, particularly when you are an experienced team. Hopefully things will get substantially better as we approach the conference schedule.

I noticed that Juggernaut known as Boston College got blown-out by Charlotte today. That's Holy Cross, Providence and now Charlotte that have easily handled BC.

So? We didn't have Tera, Taya or Olga for that game? So we essentially had 8 player that game (not counting Nelson who is a freshman walk on).... either way the game is over.... gotta move on from it man.

Also you never answered my question from a few posts ago.... you said you had heard there was other stuff going on besides injuries.... what all have you heard? Cause I'm pretty connected to this team & other than injuries I haven't seen or heard anything.

Again, I understand the injury situation. It's prevalent in every competitive sport. I certainly hope all of the players overcome their injuries, the chemistry get's right, and they make a run. That said, we should be competitive against teams comparable to ours. Not talking winning necessarily but competitive.

My connectivity is to the men's program but I follow and talk to people who have some connectivity to the women's program. I will not discuss publicly any information that's come my way. From what I can discern it's nothing major but echoed some things I heard in years past.

This is likely my last post with respect to the women's program this season. Hopefully everyone will get healthy and they will turn this season around. I support all of VCU's athletic teams. Go Rams!
