Nice article... Really nice article. I wish them well this year [except against one team]

This part made me laugh:

Close about a Freshman Billings:
Quote:
“For Monique, I remember thinking that it’s a good thing she plays fast, because every time she touched the ball, she traveled. Her feet were sliding all over the place, she couldn’t dribble with her left hand, and she was shooting 47 percent from the free throw line.”


because she still does travel a lot but doesn't get called as much any more. Maybe it's the rolled up shorts makes the ref not notice her feet. Laughing

I love to see these 'human side' articles. We have a lot of quality people in women's athletics.

Of all of the elements of Billings's game that have improved over the years, the improvement in her footwork is what's most impressive to me. She's so solid in the post now, and her moves are exceptionally well-choreographed. Now, maybe those moves are well-choreographed and also illegal, I couldn't personally say, but she no longer looks like she's just winging it down there, and that probably buys her at least some leeway with the refs.
