    Another post prospect (2013)

    This is an interesting story. Several good schools after her. Some depth in the front court certainly couldn't hurt!

    Would love to sign her.

    She may not sign on the spot because the article said she is visiting several other schools on this trip.

    She would definitely have opportunities here right away, so that should be a draw for her if she has the motivation to play and get better.

    In the European article, she says that she is a versatile player, which could be a great complement to Hallie, either backing her up or giving us a one-two punch with two athletic forwards.

    She also says she likes to read and understand the game -- no one better to play for than Fennelly in that regard!

    However, she does acknowledge having a tough time playing defense on smaller players, so she would need to work on that.

    Given our relative depth at guard, she'd likely be playing 4 on defense, so she would be matching up with taller players in general.

    Reading her blogg (yes two g's trademark) I get the sense this is a very worldly lady and not to be too blunt an Amazon.

    Blogg: Paulinasintressen - and if you need a translation copy/paste here: Google Translate

    Seems serious about bb but Paulina loves to shop. I see her happiest in warm high-end-retail places.

    Interesting. From her stats page, she led the European u18 league in scoring with over 20 ppg. U18 European Championship Women 2012 | FIBA Europe

    She also appears to take threes, though don't know if that is her game, or a factor that is European style ball.

    What would be a perfect weekend for you if money was not a problem?

    Then I would bring my best friends to a warm place in Europe for relaxing, shopping and just have some fun.
    That sounds like Iowa in the spring!

    One of her Sweden teammates, Zahui Amanda B., is a 6'-5" redshirt freshman for the Gophers.

    Well if game attendance has any bearing UCLA avg 1,991 per game and Florida avg 1,190 per game.
    Iowa State avg 9,970 per game in 2013. That is a stark contrast in game time atmosphere.

    Re: Another post prospect (2013)

    We seem to be in the mix for Hersler.

    Some recent Tweets and notes from another board:


    Paulina Herslerū@Paulinahersler20h
    "Im back after two amazing weeks in the states! I have so much new experience and i am never going to forget this trip!"

    Paulina Herslerū@Paulinahersler21h
    "@_brynnw hey im back in swe! All went very good and now i have the hardest part in front of me! How's Ames? Miss the yoghurt place already!"


    Paulina played for the same club team, Telge Basket, that Amanda Zahui played for. They won the 2011 and 2012 Swedish Championships. [Amanda committed to the University of Minnesota and redshirted last year. She also visited Washington before committing to UM.]

    ISU fans appear to be high on Paulina particularly as depth for their current front court. At least one UCLA fan is reserved about her readiness to play since she is coming off rehabilitation for an ACL (November, 2012).
    We have not read any analysis or heard much from Florida or Washington observers.

    Another board has some good stuff pro and con http://mbd.scout.com/mb.aspx?S=12&F=1739&T=11551358&P=1

    Re: Another post prospect (2013)

    Here's a video of her linked in the thread StClone mentioned: U18 Women Race To All Tournament Team - YouTube!

    She's from around :54 to 1:25. Obviously just brief highlights, but she really looks like a good player.
