    Another potential post player for ISU

    Mid-Iowa Newspapers - Offseason work will be key to ISU's success in 2008-09

    "Note: According to the Seattle Times, Washington freshman center Kali Bennett is transferring and is considering ISU. Bennett's mom, Chris, also told the paper her daughter wants to transfer to Washington State, where former Washington coach June Daugherty is now an assistant coach. The 6-foot-5 Bennett, who is from Ventura, Calif., averaged 4.9 points and 3.0 rebounds in 30 games last season. Former ISU assistant coach Katie Abrahamson-Henderson is now an assistant coach at Washington."

    The Seattle Times article:
    Steve Kelley | Why the freshmen left UW women's basketball team | Seattle Times Newspaper

    "I think a lot of my health problems were stress," said Bennett, who took a recruiting visit to the University of Hawaii last weekend and also is considering Arizona State, Iowa State and Nebraska. "I was really stressed out during the season to the point that I got constant migraines. I couldn't sleep very much. I do feel there were points in the season where coach Jackson would say we were out of shape, but I felt that we were overworked. The main reason I'm leaving is just coaching."

    Re: Another potential post player for ISU

    A little more info:

    She was rated the #35 player in the nation coming out of high school: Scout.com: Kali Bennett Profile

    She is apparently more of a high-post player than low-post, and could be a really tall forward rather than a center.

    As a freshman at UW this past season, she had 4.9 ppg and 3.0 rpg in only 10.5 minutes per game. She apparently had some issues with a thumb injury, and she did have 71 fouls in only 316 minutes of action. She also hit 10 of 26 from behind the arc, so she'd fit in well here. :)

    IMO, this would be a good pick up for Bill and the team. She'd have to sit out a season, but be ready to play the following. The opportunity is there for her to play a key role in replacing Weiben, Ross, & Anderson.

    Re: Another potential post player for ISU

    It seems that her mom wants her to transfer to Washington State, but it would be great to have another big post down low.

    Re: Another potential post player for ISU

    She might be good. We definately could use some more size inside. I like the girl from Montana quite a bit too, but since we started recruiting her, it looks like UCONN and the like have moved in on her.
