    I think she starts, unless Aus struggles at the two again. ISU would be a better team if Williams is good enough to move Aus to the two.

    I like Williams, but she's just too small. People forget about DEFENSE - if we stay in man-to-man, teams will just post her up.
    It happens all the time to Whitney even in pick-up ball.

    True. I was hoping she could get stronger, and I tend to forget the recent emphasis on defense. My mind was still in the two-three and small pg days.

    I love her intensity though - even watching her in the Iowa Games last year, which is really just pick-up ball - Williams and Ezell played like it was the Final Four.

    Whitney was soooo much better then Alexis Yackly... I think Whitney will play a little more then Denae because of her ability to score..

    Size isn't everything. She just needs to learn how to play in someone's grille. Shannon Bobbit was a great in your face defender at 5'2."

    My biggest concern isn't her being posted up as much as allowing other guards to see and pass over her for ball distribution on the perimeter.

    I'm guessing she's working hard this year to improve her game as much as possible plus she is a comitted cyclone compared to arlen yackly and rockall who peaced out

    Doubtful that WW will start at PG. Aus made her feelings about playing the 2 position very clear last season.

    whit could start for coach over Denae because she has had more offense in the past.Denae is about as quick of a player as you will see on the court.The teams we play will determine who starts between the two of them.If we are making shots DS will stay on the floor.
