You Think! State Women Over GaTech

Finally, Harper played her four best players lots of minutes, and State beat Georgia Tech, a team they have had problems with for the last few years. Yes, Tech is not very good this year, but a win on the road at GaTech can not be all bad.

Kastanek played 37 minutes, and scored 24 points on 9 of 14 shooting. Burke played 33 minutes, and scored 17 points on 6 of 12 shooting. Brown played 30 minutes, scored 8 points on 3-6 shooting, and handed out 5 assists. Gatling played 26 minutes and scored 17 points on 8 of 10 shooting. While Brown still is not starting at the point, she should be getting 30 minutes plus a game absent having a really horrible day. She is just plain the best point guard not named Lo Brown that State has. Kastanek should never come out of the game!

Second finally, Barrett, the number two guard, may be realizing that she is not a good shooter and is instead handing out assist. She had 8 against FSU, and 5 against GaTech. Case in point is that Barrett shot 2 for 9 against FSU, 2 for 5 against VaTech and 2 for 8 against GaTech. Barrett has good ball handling skills and good speed, so being a role player and set up player suits her over being a shooter and scorer.

The Wolfpack women have won their last two games beating Virginia Tech 58-39 at home and beating GaTech 78-66 on the road. Both Techs are stuck at the bottom of the conference standings, so its no big deal in State beating them; however 2-7 in conference is better than 0-9.

Much is said and written about the State women playing four currently ranked teams in thier first seven conference games, all losses; however, that only holds water if one expects themselves to finish in the bottom half of the conference. If a team is good and expects to make the NCAA tournament, the team needs to be on the level of those four ranked teams and win at least home games against them.

In other words, excusing an 0-7 start in conference play by pointing out that those seven games included playing four currently ranked teams is just not going to get it.
