The Bears dipped into the recruiting portal in a big way this offseason, adding four portal or grad transfer veterans along with two international freshmen.

Wanted to do a little cross board promotion with the women's squad and their 6 signings this class. Definitely some impact adds in their class, too.

Kind of important the best two players and the only freshman went into the portal. Charmin's program is dead! She should have been fired at the of the '23 season.

I thought the two best players this season were Leilani and Evelien. Leilani is returning and Evelien will graduate in molecular biology and put college basketball behind her.

Gosh, Tara VanDerveer lost 3 players to the portal (2 freshmen and 1 junior). One of those freshmen (Betts) was the #1 player in the country coming out of high school. What does that say about that coach? lol.

Maybe try supporting this team instead of constantly tearing it down.
