    ESPN WBB: Weekend's Best Individual Performance

    Congratulations to Pop!

    "Weekend's best individual performance: Chelsea Poppens, Iowa State. There's a good story brewing at Iowa State, one that will be a great story when coach Bill Fennelly is able to tell it at full volume. With Fennelly undergoing treatment for a cancerous lesion on his vocal cords, Iowa State dropped its first five conference games (a rugged opening stretch with road games at Oklahoma, Kansas and Texas and no relief at home against Baylor and Texas A&M).

    Well, the Cyclones have won four of five since that opening stretch, including a 71-56 victory against Texas on Saturday. Poppens totaled 27 points and 10 rebounds in just 24 minutes against the Longhorns, hitting 9-of-11 shots from the floor. The junior forward topped 20 points three times in the past five games."

    Unfortunately still doesn't guarantee her Player of the Week in this league unless Griner was held to 4 points and 1 block.


    "There are five real good recruits in the state. We got three of them. One couldn’t get into school, and the other went to (the University of) Iowa...which is about the same thing." - Coach Johnny Orr

    In two games, Griner averaged 23.5 points and 7 rebounds. Pop averaged 19 points and 13 rebounds. Could be close.

    Amazing! Congratulations! Great media coverage for ISU and Pop and BF. A good story is brewing, indeed, and if they can continue winning this season might turn out to be one of BF's most compelling coaching moments.
