    This is just my guess. Does anyone know what the line up may be.
    Or do you have better guesses than me?

    I mostly agree with this. I think Schroll gets more time than Flo, and either Poppens or Zimmerman starts at 4 with Lightbourne coming off the bench.

    Anna will be playing more than half the game. If 20 at the 5, the other 10+ will be at the 4 draining 50% of her 3's. (66% in HS)

    25-27 mpg is pretty typical for a starting 5, and that's what Anna will probably get. Since Angie Welle only one ISU center has averaged over 30 mpg, and that was Brittany Wilkins during her breakout senior season (and she was only barely over 30 mpg). No matter how good Anna is, we have three other post players who deserve a shot at proving themselves as well.

    Isn't it fun to have so many options? Clearly any lineup could change based on the opponent without sacrificing win capability.

    My guess is Prins may not play much the start of this season as she isn't even practicing yet. However, I think BF believes she could be a premiere player in the Big 12. Not too many people can block a 6 foot 7 girls 3 point shot! She's perfect for ISU. Just hope she is tough on the blocks as well. I think she will create a lot of mis match opportunities for the cyclone offense.

    Williams is going to be starting at the 2. BF wants her averaging 8pts, and unless Denae's shot has improved drastically, she won't be starting as we have a lot of points to replace.

    I hope that she's not taking a lot of 3-point shoots! We need a post presences bad! We need her to be a physical AW type!!

    I would imagine post players would have to follow Anna out to the arc leaving some nice opportunities under the basket... If not, an easier shot

    Welle was fairly physical on offense, but she also played behind the arc plenty. She was 10-35 behind the arc for her career, which is about 1 attempt every 4 games. Not a whole lot, but she did play high post plenty.

    ISU has done this plenty in the past, and I think it would happen even more so with Prins. It especially makes it easier for Lacey and Bolte to post up their defenders.

    I think Anna will be the 4 and Pop will be the enforcer inside with Zim backing both up.

    auss,witt,bolte,prins....and the rest of the girls working into the starting rotation, All at different times before the Big 12 starts. We should still be undefeated with 4 or 5 different starting combinations. Lets just hope they all stay healthy and give us a chance to watch this team to develop!

    yeah sounds right i think zimmerman starts at the 4 because then Poppens can be the back up of either Zim or Prins because of her size and athletic ability
