    Getting the Ball Inside

    If Prins gets the ball near the hoop, she'll score. Which position is most responsible for making that happen?

    Re: Getting the Ball Inside

    I don't know if you're hoping for a certain answer, but every position is responsible. Prins has to get position and hold the seal, whoever has the ball needs to deliver the pass to the appropriate place at the appropriate time, and the remaining 3 need to have good spacing and movement off the ball in order to keep from easy double teams and clogging the lane.

    No, just looking for information. Too often we passed the ball around the perimeter until the shot clock expired or settled for an off balance three, seemingly unable to get the ball inside either by penetration or passing to the post. I figure it isn't easy (though it looks that way when it happens) or we'd do it more often. It once was our basic play. Welle averaged 20 ppg and shot 66% from the floor.

    Re: Getting the Ball Inside

    Angie got a lot of shots before the D was set, it was like a secondary break. She also got layups by being down first. She also had a go to move, something to have success with all the time. Anna isn't establishing herself and asking for the ball, needs more strength. Sometimes you can be to the spot or get there when the ball is one pass away. Use the backboard more too, please. Anna will be very good, I think. Just freshman stuff right now.

    Re: Getting the Ball Inside

    Depending on how it's being defended it can be easy to get it inside but difficult to get a good shot or difficult to get it inside. Prins is a bit like Brackins with how she tends to shy away from going to the rim. When she's physical and goes to the hoop she does well in the paint. Pop always goes hard to the rim because she doesn't have the shooting touch to rely on. I'd say Zimmerman is somewhere in between.

    I didn't think there were too many bad posessions without getting a touch inside (excluding UConn of course).

    Angie Welle was really QUICK ! I was surprised when watching her @ Hilton back in 2001 as she literally raced from one end to another end. Well, that's why she was All American
    Anna is still a freshman and I agree that the coaching staff will work on her during the off-season

    I remember being frustrated all the time at our inability to get the ball in the post back in the Welle era. We'd go several possessions in a row without getting it to her, then BF would yell at the backcourt to get her the ball more. The next several minutes would be spent passing the ball into the post no matter what and turning it over a bunch because most of those passes were ill-advised.

    I think a lack of driving ability by the backcourt coupled with rarely having multiple low post options on the court together means that ISU has NEVER been great at feeding the post in the Fennelly era. I honestly think as the three freshman posts mature (as well as Christofferson and any future post recruits), I think this could finally change.

    Re: Getting the Ball Inside

    Angie commented earlier this year that the game has changed. Even so, there are still teams that find a way to get the ball inside. Earlier this evening it seemed that Baylor could get the ball to Griner for easy buckets, but, most of the time not - perhaps a better zone defense? Also, BF's point guards are generally most noted for outside shooting and getting assists by feeding other outside shooters rather than driving or feeding the post

    The head coach.

    Until that changes, ISU will likely not progress beyond the Sweet 16.

    I hope you are right. ISU has gone as far as it can go with the the "Live and Die by the 3-pt shot" approach...

    miss prins would be 200 percent better for the team if she would learn to do a turnaround juimp shot.

    Um, didn't we progress beyond the Sweet 16 just last year?

    True enough. ISU was also a #4 seed last year, but they got to play a #9 seed in the Sweet 16 game, instead of a #1 like this year. Last year, When ISU hit #2 Stanford, they were blown out, albiet not as bad as the UConn game.
