    Lacey has big shoes to fill at point guard

    Lacey replaces Medders as offensive leader

    Ames, Ia. — Iowa State women's basketball coach Bill Fennelly sees two people responsible for this season's grand experiment.

    The Cyclones return three starters from a 26-9 team that reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament. The biggest question is who will succeed Lyndsey Medders, the Cyclones' leading scorer and career assists leader, at point guard.

    Fennelly said at Tuesday's media day that Alison Lacey, a sophomore from Canberra, Australia, will move from shooting guard to the point when practice opens Saturday.

    "I told 'Aus,' if this doesn't work, there'll be two people in trouble - you and me," Fennelly said. "Her comment was, 'You have a longer contract than I do.' "

    Getting back to basketball instead of good looking coeds, (you have to know I'm old) I think Lacey will surprise a lot of people with her PG skills. She filled in some while Medders rested and did a fine job. Taking care of the ball and seeing the whole floor and only taking the shot when open,---doesn't sound like Mike Taylor does it?

    Re: Lacey has big shoes to fill at point guard

    The selection of Lacey shows Fennelly's concern about turnovers. She isn't likely to be a flashy PG, but, she will value the ball. She may not score as much as she would from the 2 or 3. At times, we may see PG by committee with 3-4 guards on the floor and everyone will have to contribute points.
