    Re: Nakiah Bell

    Bill said Bell was a one of his top targets for the 2014 class now I see why. Her size has always slowed me from believing she was big time. I guess if you look at what she has done (Incarnate HS's record) and now this national recognition, it appears we are getting a great one.

    Re: Nakiah Bell

    Anyone notice out of 30 All-Americans only two Big 12 schools are represented. ISU has one and Texas has THREE.

    Re: Nakiah Bell

    She reminds me of one of my favorite players at TN, Shannon Bobbit who was PG for their back to back National Championship teams. Now, on defense, it might be a challenge, but if she can get up in the grill of guards like Shannon did, then she will be a star.

    Yeah, pretty scary how much talent Aston is landing.

    And then there was that point guard at Okie State 3 or 4 years ago, whose name I have forgotten, but she was 5-5 and gave every team she played against the fits. A real offensive weapon. So I'm not worried about Bell's size either.

    Andrea Riley I believe. A name I will not utter again.

    Because it's Texas.
    I'm quite surprised that Baylor doesn't have anyone on the list but I guess Mulkey is getting a lot of unfavorable press these days. Grinner's book that was released yesterday pretty much hammered her reputation.

    I think she is still in the WNBA. She was one of the top scoring NCAA players in the country back in '09-'10. She won some awards I think one was the nations top point guard or something. Bell would do well to imitate Riley.

    I really hope not. I would hope that BF recruits players with more class than Riley.

    I agree with your comment. IIRC Riley's FGA was almost comical - yes, she scored tons but she was basically given free rein to shoot anytime she wanted.

    Re: Nakiah Bell

    She was also a worse flopper that Marcus Smart. She would pull other players down from behind in attempts to get fouls called.
