    KA shows the worst shortsmanship of all. Whether after a win or a loss never stopping, even briefly, to offer or receive congratulatory pleasantries with opposing coaches or players. Her demeanor REEKS of negativity... definitely aligned with the old bitter regime.

    You tore your rotator cuff reaching so much because you can’t rightfully justify your girl Duane Mulkey’s behavior.:e-face-tears:

    How about everyone on this board get back to being adults? It's fine to disagree with a perspective someone posts, but it is not okay to call people names: not other people on this board, not coaches, not players. There are plenty of ways to disagree: utilize opinion, observation or evidence. That's much stronger argumentation. It is possible to make your case for or against any post or issue without acting like a young child who gets emotionally stuck and calls someone a stupidhead when hurt or angry.

    In a couple of the pictures from earlier she was there on crutches.

    Thanks. Someone mentioned a while back she was in a boot but hadn’t heard anything since.

    In this tweet from Coach Aston she comments "Great 8"? No mention of Shea Routt? I really question her long term future with the program.

    Has had a very up-and-down relationship with the WBB program.
    1) committed
    2) de-committed
    3) where is she going to school?
    4) is it related to where her mom is teaching? But, is she teaching there?
    5) committed
    6) injury (passing out during practice)
    7) no information, zero. zilch. quiet.

    I totally agree with you racer! Her participation with the team has been perplexing to say the least! Now Aston’s tweet says it is not available? But when I tap on the link it still comes up??? Maybe she is on crutches and just not participating? It is a conspiracy theory but why did Aston not acknowledge her?

    Well, the non-conference schedule is pretty much like most of the last few years with two "top 25" opponents, and a bunch of the local regional schools that don't help us much SOS/RPI wise (UTSA, UTRGV, Northwestern State, and Southern).

    Opening on the road at South Florida is a surprise (I prefer we open at home each season); having them and Arizona, and Ohio are decent, and I'd say an improvement over some of the teams on last year's schedule.

    OOC schedule strength not great but could be improved depending on whoever they face in the 3 games in Hawaii.

    Aston is excited about the "competitive" non-conference schedule? Hmm. I see only 2 home games that have any business being overly "competitive" and a couple more away. Some good teams have played in the Hawaii tournament the last few years so I am hopeful that will improve the schedule. The Big 12 is not what it was ten years ago. Other than Baylor, we cannot count on another conference team to help the NCAA resume that much. One or two Big 12 teams may step up in any given season. In the past I might already have amused myself looking at team rosters for next year. Now, it may be quite a bit later before the dust starts to settle on all the transfers in and out.

    I found the participants of the last 3 Rainbow Wahine Showdowns (Hawaii is always the 4th team) and I'll say I hope the field is more like the 2016 version than the last 2:
    • 2016: Oregon, Mississippi State, San Jose State
    • 2017: Southern Cal (USC), Purdue, Marist
    • 2018: Stanford, FGCU, American
    It seems they tend to bring in 1 'name' team and 2 'beatable' opponents. 2016 was an oddity because that would have been Ionescu's freshman year and before Oregon rocketed to prominence, the Ducks finished that season 23-14.

    2018: FGCU was a 13 seed this year (28-5) and were knocked out of the NCAA tourney by #4 Miami in the first round. American (22-11) got booted in the first round of the WNIT by Penn. Stanford (31-5) was the 'name' team and made it to the Elite 8 before losing to ND - handed Baylor their only loss last season.

    When you run the numbers--if the tourney has similar quality to last years--it's a much better schedule than last year's. Last year we scheduled 6 terrible teams with RPI significantly worse than 150 that were a drag on our RPI. This year there are 3 terrible teams and one bad team that finished right at 150. IMO, it appears that Aston is starting to get that it makes a difference for RPI and other rankings whether you schedule an average team that you will crush vs. a terrible team you will crush, even though it probably shouldn't.
