Okay, I’ll be looking for her at #6 on your final mock. Surprised


LOL no shades , notice i said anyone AFTER #7 Laughing Were at 6 and i want Russell . I have decided for sure thats who i want at 6 . Scaife is most likely the best one on one guard outside of Kelsey mitchell in this draft . (Personal Opinion) She needs to start getting some love for this upcoming draft. Rutgers would not be anywhere near relevant without her this season . Ex:(See last season)

The more I see Natalie Butler the more I believe she can make a WNBA team. I can see her moving up into the top of second round, or even the bottom of the first. Admittedly she isn't playing against top competition in the Atlantic 10, but she has enough size and skill to be a serviceable backup, and maybe even develop into a starter.


This is odd timing because McGrady just made a case that Gabby’s stats on a team filled with prolific scorers aren’t worthy enough for a top prospect. And now you’re saying the player that Gabby bumped from her spot at center and couldn’t find court time with UConn and subsequently left the team is worthy of a first round pick. Did she beast out in the off season to become greatly improved or is it mostly just the lesser competition? First round seems highly improbable to me. Did she show up in the AP two round mock draft? If not, she’s on nobody’s radar.... unless you contend they’re trying to keep her a secret so she got no mention.


My case is that she has the size to play the interior in the WNBA. She didn't necessrily fit the scheme at UConn, but she has skills. She needs to improve, but with her frame and her ball skills, I believe that she can hold her own inside. Initially I see her as someone who can give a strong 10-15 minutes off the bench, and I could see her as a serviceable starter on a Bill Laimbeer type team with some seasoning.

I'm going to put in another plug for my favorite widget: http://web1.ncaa.org/stats/StatsSrv/careersearch

Like I said, I had a hunch and plugged in Swin Cash (whereupon I discovered that her stats as Swin and her stats as Swintayla have not been unified, unlike more modern name variations). Going to her stats page gave me a link to that year's UConn squad, which I then sorted by PPG.

(and today's bonus geekery: if a school has the year-by-year W/L record listed, they may also have statistics in PDF format that are NOT in the searchable database, which only goes back to 1998-99 oh my GOD I nerded out so HARD you have no idea)

She did not look that good to me ... she doesn't look like she has a post game (she definitely doesn't demand the ball) and she's not particularly mobile.

She'll help a WNBA team, definitely, but I don't see her being a difference-maker.

Maybe not on the offensive end her first season . She reminds me of a Bigger Sylvia Fowles at LSU . Lets not forget how horrible she was before she became the MVP of this league .

Sylvia Fowles was SEC player of the year as a senior, beating out Candace Parker (among others).

Fowles was always a top tier center in the W from day one. Confused

Rock on! I don't buy this nonsense that in 3 weeks of training camp Reeve turned Fowles from a mediocre talent into a world beater. The main thing that held back early on was injuries.

Yea WNBA09 Im not seeing the comparison between Fowles and McCowen. Fowles was way better and more skilled on both ends coming out of college. The only reason McCowen is a potential lottery pick is because of her height and her upside. Not to discredit TMac, but she's definitely not on the same level Fowles was on coming out of LSU. JMO

Fast forward to 1:20 in this video to see what Lisa Leslie says about young Sylvia Fowles

Physically speaking there's no comparison. Fowles (especially if we're talking in her early 20s) could move her feet, leap, and finish gracefully, which is what still makes her an all-world player. McCowan has more of the physical limitations you'd expect from a player of that size; she simply cannot do what Fowles could/still can.

That ugly Chicago offense probably held her back some. In Minnesota she’s got Whalen, Maya, and even Augustus playing team ball...and Fowles has even learned how to pass out of a double team.

Once raw 6-foot-7 McCowan dominating for No. 2 Bulldogs

https://www.yahoo.com/amphtml/sports/once-raw-6-foot-7-mccowan-dominating-no-153722260--ncaaw.html

Quote:
''She was extremely raw,'' Harris said. ''But she had all the tools.''

A little more than two years later, Mississippi State's patience and McCowan's work ethic are paying off - big time. The junior is averaging nearly 20 points, 13 rebounds and two blocks a game as the anchor for the No. 2 Bulldogs, who have a 23-0 record, including a 9-0 mark in the Southeastern Conference


Quote:
McCowan's improvement has coincided with Mississippi State's rise as a national power.


Quote:
McCowan's been so good that her WNBA future has suddenly become a hot topic. She's already 21 years old and turns 22 in September, which makes her eligible for the WNBA draft if she chooses to skip her senior season.

But McCowan said she's committed to staying with the Bulldogs for four seasons.

''Me and my mom have already talked about it,'' McCowan said. ''I'm going to get my degree first.''


Well at least we now know that she knows she’s eligible to declare early for the draft. That’s valuable information.

Probably one of those two, but there’s a lot games to be played until then. Stevens as a starter might be impressive.

I agree, some Uconn fans think LouConn will go Number 1 over all, but 6’7 Brown is a beast and will likely go 1 or 2 followed by Durr.

I definitely like this draft better than 2018, feel like 7-8 of those players would go top ten in the 2018 draft.

LMAO neither McCowan or Brown are mobile, they won't be able to play at the W pace, projects that will only be able to be used against other slow bigs. Urr who plays no defense, doesn't set screens for her team, doesn't hustle, is only happy when she is hitting and can be inconsistent Laughing Laughing

Brown reminds me of Kara Braxton, on the right team, she should be pretty dominate.

A Brown/ Wilson front court would be one of the best in the league in a short time.

I think that some people forget that big immobile posts can't park them selves in the paint, even Oklahoma gave Brown fits when she couldn't sit herself under the basket.

The UConn website has a lot of broken links since they revamped (= made it worse) about five years ago. The 2002 team's stats don't appear under the broken "Statistics" link but under the "Media Center" link.

http://www.uconnhuskies.com/datadump/WBasketball/2002/MediaCenter/uconn.pdf

In answer to my question, yes, in the 2002 WNBA draft Sue Bird, the third scorer and most TO's, was drafted first, and Asjha Jones, the fourth scorer, was drafted fourth. Swin Cash was drafted second and Tamika Williams-Raymond was drafted sixth. The second best scorer, Diana Taurasi, was only a sophomore.

Jessica Moore and Ashley battle also played in the WNBA, with Moore starting on the Sparks under Jelly Bean Bryant.

This college team was better than almost all WNBA teams in history.

Back to Gabby Williams. Note that Swin Cash was 0-1 on 3pt shots in her senior year, yet Bill Laimbeer tried to turn her into a frequent 3pt shooter in her first year in Detroit. Was he successful?

Depends what you mean by successful. She spent the rest of her career shooting them occasionally. Outside of the one freak year in Seattle, she didn't spend much of her career hitting them.

6. Maria Vadeeva
7. Azura Stevens
8. Lexie Brown
9. Victoria Vivians (+4)
10. Monique Billings
11. Tyler Scaife (+4)
12. Kia Nurse

13. Las Vegas Shakayla Thomas
14. Indiana Stephanie Mavunga
15. Connecticut Jaime Nared (-4)

31. Washington Gabbi Ortiz
32. Las Vegas Myisha Hines-Allen
33. Connecticut Lexi Bando
34. New York Kristen Confroy
35. Los Angeles Kolby Morgan
36. Minnesota Carlie Wagner

Boo-yah on #36! Megdal knows who to listen to.

He pulled McCowan out since last version and replaced her with Canada.
McCowan says she wants to get her degree, but early in the season Stevens claimed she was staying the full tilt, so I’m not sure why she stays in the mock.

He swapped Scaife and Nared since the last mock. Listening too much to WNBA 09. Nared would be a nice fit with the Sparks.

That Deer came out of nowhere to crash into the middle of his second round. Must have had a big game.

Stevens needs another year. Hopefully she will embrace it. I wouldn’t take either McCowan or Brown as they are more like the slow big posts who sit the bench and only play limited minutes. Not worth a lottery pick.

Idk why Megal still has Stevens listed. I think she stays. Esp since she hasn't really been lighting it up this season. I think Scaife has been slept on in this class, but as a Sparks fan I'd prefer Nared, Nurse or even Russell if they were still on the board.

Aglers is not going to be interested in a player who is not a good 3 point shooter and doesn't play team ball.

I disagree with all points in this post. Very Happy

Brown reminds me of Kara Braxton, on the right team, she should be pretty dominate.


Sorry to call you out but this is a pet peeve of mine. Dominate is something you do; dominANT is something you are. But yes, I agree that she could be a dominant post in the WNBA. Wink

I think it’s pretty laughable at this point that he doesn’t even have McPhee getting drafted at all. From Freshman to Senior she’s the most improved player in the class, which bodes well for her continued improvement.

Since you started this, PG, it also bugs me inordinately since the malapropism is now so widespread. To say it a different way, "dominate" is a verb and "dominant" is the adjective.

McPhee should get drafted. Sticking on a roster long term is another story.

Nowadays, I tend to be more forgiving because autocorrect often steps in to make us look bad.

Draft-eligible Kitija Laksa of USF just went off for 18 pts in the first quarter against Ohio St. She's cooled off a bit since then, but still.

im watching this game too, she is a dangerous shooter, she got a quick shot, a nice pull up game and can drive the basketball. definitely a underated player that needs more attention

Senior Jespersen from USF is even more so under the radar.

She's a junior . Why would she come out early? I hate all the encouragement for juniors to jump early.
