Almost 30 percent of the top 100 who have already committed are headed to ACC schools. The top teams in the conference bring in several every year. Getting one every two or three years is not going to get a team to the NCAA tournament on a regular basis, no matter how good the coaching is.
But it is how you start.  Duke signed a top ten player named Chidom this year because she had played with Rebecca Greenwell (who had just committed) and because she was a huge fan of Chelsea Gray (Duke PG) who is also from California like Chidom.  There is another top ten player named Cooper from California who is now expected to commit to Duke because of her connection to all the other girls.  Point is you start by getting one top player and the others will sometimes follow.  unc did the same thing this year--signed 5 top players in one day. These girls meet in the U17 or AAU tourneys and decide to commit to the same schools a lot of time.
On Kellie's recruiting, in 2010 MC-G was rated in the top 50, last year Krystal Barrett was rated about #75. But there has been nothing since. (I think Blue Star had Ashley Eli in the top 100 so maybe she was overlooked by the other services). Anyway, it takes more than an isolated start. It takes someone on the staff who can make the kind of connections to generate interest and belief in the program. We do not have that now and it is a big problem that needs to be fixed. One way to do it is to do what Clemson did - hire a top notch recruiter, pay the money, and start thinking a little bigger. Since when in history has Clemson had a more prominent WBB program than N C State? Maybe they will not be able to get the good results because of coaching deficiencies, but at least they have enough talent coming in to give them a chance.
That is what I would do if recruiting doesn't improve. One commitment with 5 available scholarships with 2 weeks to go until signing day is not good.

The Athletics Department is setting expectations pretty high. From its Facebook page: "Said to have the potential to be the best team so far in Coach Kellie Harper's tenure at NC State, the Wolfpack Women are going to need your support at Reynolds Coliseum this season!"

We'll see.

It all depends on your Juco transfer center.  If she can play, then this probably will be her best team.  If she ends up just being a big body out there then you are looking at another losing record and no NCAA. No matter what you hear, you won't know if she can really play until you play a couple of teams that are legit.  There are some good posts in the ACC.

Absolutely spot on. Also lack of foul trouble and lack of injuries will be critical. Kody has to become a more consistent good player like she showed in a few games last season. Someone needs to provide the perimeter defense and leadership Tasler provided. I'm hoping Brown can step in there. We will need some better shot selection and better ball handling too.

Re: WBB 2012-13: Media day / how recruits make decisions 


I want to ask another question here if there is anyone close enough to the program to give some information. We have five juniors on this season's squad. We have five underclassmen and only one of them is a freshman. Right now we have one commitment for 2013. So if no one leaves unexpectedly (which historically is unlikely), how are we going to have a roster of players for 2014?

We were going to set our clocks back this morning, but no need because all they say now is OUR TIME! It is game day!

I hope it is their time.

1. They discussed using male players during practices and how physical the practices can be.
2. Key to having a successful season is consistency. Players are older, more mature this season so hopefully they will be more consistent.
3. Influence of Kay Yow.
4. Harper wants to win more than anyone else. She puts more pressure on herself to win than any external pressure.
5. Excited about NCSU MBB. Should help the WBB program if they are successful.

Tomorrow we will be live tweeting our Media Day beginning around 2:30 pm @ PackWomensBball

#5 is an interesting point, I recall some said the men's program dropping off in the 90's was blamed as a reason the women's team suffered too. If that's true, the women should always pull for the NCSU men to do well - their fate appears to be tied to the men.

Here is something you probably will never see. North Greenville's starters had zero points in the first half. #weird

Big whipping against inferior talent. It will be interesting to see how the team does against better competition. Barrett had good stats for the time she played.

GoPack.com: 8 Double Figure Scorers Send Pack Over Crusaders, 111-39
Junior forward Kody Burke led the Wolfpack with 22 points on 7-of-8 shooting from the field, while junior Markeisha Gatling recorded a double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds in her first appearance for NC State. In addition to shooting a perfect 8-of-8 from the free-throw line, Burke also pulled down eight rebounds and had blocked five shots in just 20 minutes of action.

I was only able to watch the first half, but the team seemed much more cohesive and seemed to have more offensive weapons. We'll know more in the coming weeks of how much the team has improved since last year.

Here's hoping for a special season, which I think would be the team making it back to the NCAAs.

"Starting the season with two turnovers and two missed wide-open layups against a division II opponent in the North Greenville Crusaders isn’t the best way to start the first two minutes of a season."

I hated that first sentence, I almost could not read the rest haha. They scored 111 points how can you be anything but positive after that? I thought we looked improved, but the opponent was rather weak. noidea

Did'nt play due to broken bones?......Could we be a little more specific, please?

Broken vertebra is much different from a broken finger.
