Certainly next year may be a tough year based on your assessment but one never knows. As long as we can play above .500 I would be satisfied with that. Sounds like we have some good freshman playing next year that we hope develop as the season progresses.Not going to lie.... I'm worried about this coming year..... first real time I've said this about our WBB team since I've started following the program.
As if losing 6 seniors weren't enough.... then we lose Kat & Meemo who were gonna be huge for us next year.... Then we lose one of our recruits (Chloe Molloy) who decided to play professional rugby in Australia instead of basketball.... and now Camille's career is over.
So essentially we've lost 9 players & 1 recruit in the last month+.
As of right now we have 11 players for next year.... 6 returners and 5 recruits.
We've seen some good stuff out of Maddox, Skinner and Gibson... Hammond is still a ? For me as we didn't see too much from her in her freshmen season.... and we didn't see anything from Nyra or Niya in game this year. And of the 5 recruits.... the only 2 I've really heard anything about are Taya and Sydnei.
So don't be too surprised if we are in for a long season this year...

Really surprised that the Aliyah Jeune didn't go to UNC W with her sister. Hopefully she can provide some leadership off the bench this season until she is available to play.
Well I know UNCW just got a new coach (the coach who's been at odu the last several years). Maybe she didn't like her, or didnt get an offer from them. Or it may just be that she didn't want to play on the same team as her sister. Isis Thorpe had a step-sister (I think, I'd have to go back and ask.... can't remember the exact connection) who played for Duquesne and graduated either last year (2016) or (2015).
Certainly would be an interesting question to ask her if I ever got the chance. Of course I wouldn't ask it directly.
Which one is her sister by the way?
Her Sister's name is Ashlii Jeune.
Curious to see if we gain anymore Transfers
The Freshmen will be moving onto campus in less than a month. Anyone know if the Upper Classmen will be back then too 0r later?
