Wanted to post this game report here, too, to give the women's hoops program some love. 5-0 with some really strong defense and a lot of weapons.

HC Charmin Smith has totally remade the team with transfers and new recruits to address the defensive and scoring deficiencies they had in recent seasons where they were good enough to win most of the non-conference games but often fall just short in stacked conference play with a really deep Pac-12. They should be in much better position to compete this season, particularly if center Michelle Onyiah can stay on the court with the whistle-happy Pac-12 refs. She's been fine in the two road games with no Pac refs, funny enough.

They really need fan support beyond the women's hoops diehards. I've been to all 3 of their home games and watched the others and they put on a show. Come on out and support them, starting Friday at noon vs San Jose State at Haas.

This is the best team in years

They are not just winning… they are dominating

Of course the Pac12 is absolutely loaded this year so we will see

I had to post this because the Women's PAC 12 teams are unreal.

With that said, I have to remain true my philosophy:

As noted, it was posted because they really need to get more people out to their games and the diehards on the women's board aren't big enough in number to make a dent in their attendance. This board is.

In their second home game coach grabbed the mic and said this team deserves more support

I follow the women's hoops team, but not closely. Was Jayda Curry leaving perhaps addition by subtraction? In any event, who doesn't love a good Rattler routing!

Jayda is a good athlete with a lot of skills but IMHO incoming transfers Ioanna Krimili and McKayla Williams might be better fits for how Charmin Smith wants the team to play.
