    Stokes and Greenfield Tonight

    Sad to watch UConn and Stanford tonight and see Stokes and Greenfield riding the pine. What a waste. I get the reasons and dont blame them, but should be a lesson for other Iowa talent to really go where you are wanted and needed and not be dazzled by the pretty girl late to the dance.

    On an aside, think All American Mosqueda Lewis broke her arm and is gone for the season.

    Re: Stokes and Greenfield Tonight

    I understand it sucks for the in-state schools but that doesn't mean it sucks for them. It can be and sometimes should be more than just playing time.

    Re: Stokes and Greenfield Tonight

    I believe Greenfield is hurt, so that is why she is not playing. Stokes is OK with being a role player, so be it. She has a national championship ring, not a bad thing to tell your friends and family.

    They have both struggled with injuries at college, and probably set them both back.

    Going to Stanford is an academic no brainer...and Uconn will get you rings. Both made great choices.

    Re: Stokes and Greenfield Tonight

    According to here...

    Taylor Greenfield Player Profile, Stanford, International Stats, Game Logs - USBASKET

    She played 17.88 minutes/game last year. Not bad for a freshie, particularly on that quality of a team.

    Granted, she would have been the Queen of Ames and played 35min/night for us...

    Re: Stokes and Greenfield Tonight

    For WBB I can't fault anybody for going to Stanford. When the best of the best that can go pro don't make more than a business professional that Stanford education would have to be pretty attractive...

    As much as I love the Clones and would go in a heartbeat no matter who offered me, I can't say it with as much conviction for the female athletes...



    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    Greenfield is hurt...and IT IS STANFORD so she's got that going of her. Stokes is doing just fine as role player winning a championship ring as previously stated

    She was a sophomore. She is a junior now.

    I guess some people didn't read the bolded. Like I don't understand their reasons. I just think sometimes it is shame that some players who could be a star somewhere else, are bench players somewhere else. And it happens too much in WBB because of the 15 schollies (which Tara V. usually maxes out).

    My posts was in your reference to "being a waste" or a "lesson". I just don't see that at all with what they are experiencing. These two knew what was in store and maybe didn't need to be the star. ISU is a great school and has a awesome WBB program...but I am sure Greenfield and Stokes are quite happy with their choice as will other top talent that leaves the state.

    Stokes didn't exactly ride the pine last night. 24 minutes, 10 points, 13 rebounds, 6 blocks.

    True. But, most of her time was in result of Breanna Stewart being in foul trouble most of the game, and Mosqueda Lewis being injured most of the second half.

    OT: I live near Greg Stokes. He is a nice guy. But it sure is funny seeing him cram his 6-10 frame onto a Forrest Gump mower.

    Sorry, but I do think it is a waste to see such talent sit.

    I'm not banging my chest about they should have come to ISU, and should know that I was one who defended their decisions, but to me, as a WBB fan of the whole sport, not just ISU, I am frustrated that there are some schools that fill their rosters with top flight kids who might never play, but would start somewhere else, and elevate the sport as a whole. WBB needs to have its scholly amount lowered.
