    I think my Bruins would've loved to've reeled her in, but no dice. Very nice signing for Rueck!

    Rueck is a nice coach he landed a hell of a player...her freshmen year at Maryland didn't look like rookie year, she was good!

    First half decent recruit Rueck has landed since his Assistant Campbell left for Oregon to coach with Graves. Campbell recruited most of OSU's recent success


    The girl from Miramonte we know about had a bigger year just to compare the two.

    Destiny's biggest issue is she is prone to be a turnover machine at times.

    I think Slocum had a higher FG% and I'd be surprised if Ionescu didn't have more TO's, actually.

    Another note is that Oregon State's verbal from the 6'9" post Aquino in NJ just shot up to #6 overall in the class for 2018: http://www.espn.com/high-school/girl...s/_/class/2018

    Good questions, so I thought I'd look ...

    Playing on a more talented team, Slocum played 35 minutes fewer than Ionescu for the season.

    Slocum's big advantages: 40.5% overall shooting percentage to Ionescu's 39.0%, and 204 assists to 183

    Otherwise: Three-point % -- Ionescu 42.0, Slocum 37.4
    Free throw % -- Ionescu 82.5, Slocum 66.3
    Turnovers -- Ionescu 95, Slocum 106
    Rebounds -- Ionescu 6.6, Slocum 3.0
    Points -- Ionescu 14.6, Slocum 11.5

    Of course, lots has to do with roles on the team, etc., but they played almost the same number of minutes.

    Off of their freshman years, I'd take Sabrina.

    I agree with Clay. But also add that Ionescu played a lot of her minutes with freshman and sophomores on the court. No Jones or Walker-Kimbrough on Oregon to make Ionescu look good.

    What about double double and triple double comparisons? I know triple doubles are as hard as hell for any upper class men let alone an under class men.

    Got to take into consideration conference play too. Pac-12 was rated the #1 toughest conference & the big ten #6.

    Slocum is a good player but Ionescu is a force. Stats do not tell the whole story.
