: : : : : : : : : : : : : Is a BEAST!

: : : : : : : : : : : : Please don't start this crap. She just got back after missing 3 or 4 games. STOP !!!!!

: : : : : : : : : : : To the above poster... that makes it even more legit that she can be out for 3-4 games and still come back strong and with the W! All of these KLS haters need to knock it off! But then again... only game recognizes game :)

: : : : : : : : : : : They trailed while she was in the game, then came back, took the lead and won when she went out and stayed out.

: : : : : : : : : They would not have won that game without her 18 points. That's all i'm saying!

: : : : : : : : : They were trailing as much as 20 when she was in the game. Went out at the very beginning of 4th at which time they were behind by like 15, soon as she went out they rallied to take the lead and won by 7. That's all I'm saying.

: : : : : : : Take away the 18 and it's a big L. That's all I'm saying.

: : : : : : :Or the ball rotates to someone else to score, like when they made the run when she went out.

: : : : : : Sorry to say that they're on the + side when she's not on the floor. On this game at least.

: : : : : You guys can talk all you want, but at the end of the day, her production offensively helps this team win games. All of you are ignoring the fact that if you take away her 18 points and UCONN loses that game. You can jibber jabber all you want about Notre Dames runs with her on the floor vs her on the bench.... she still scored 18. She still got the W!

: : : : Basketball is a team game. She did not win this game. Her contributions helped, but by no means did her play overwhelm the other team. KLS cannot take over a game individually because she is not that type of player. She plays well in a system that Geno has in place. Put her on a team with good players and not great players (like she has at Uconn) and she won't be as effective. She doesn't make her teammates better. She's a good offensive player and a mediocre defensive player (not a good on ball defender)

: : : She doesn’t have to be a Kelsey Mitchell type player. There is s reason that arguably the best coach in WCBB recruited her. She fits his scheme. I never said she was the best. I said BEAST.

: : No one said basketball isn't a team game, but you are repeatedly saying that she wouldn't be as effective on a mediocre team. So clearly, she is effective on a great team. Clearly she has the ability to score points and help her team win games. It's a joke that you guys come on here and bash on a kid who is obviously one of the better players in the nation. I agree with the above poster, She doesn't have to be a kelsey mitchell type player. She was the women's National Freshman Of the Year. She was Co-Conference player on the year last year. This isn't MD. There is no political scheme going on where UCONN needs to keep her happy in order for her to stay. She averaged 20 points a game, and shot damn near 50% from the field and 41% from the 3 point line. WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT OUT OF A PLAYER!!!!!!!!

: ^^^^ 100% Agree

Don't know the Katie Lou S. history in SoCal, but I'm curious as to why all the venom and the speculation on what she would do or not do on another team. Seems as though there is a faction that believes she shouldn't be where she is. As I see it, no matter her ability, Coach Geno saw a role for her and she fits it. Why are people so invested in her performance? She's just a kid playing hoops. She'll graduate in a year or two, and like every other woman playing college basketball, we will never hear about her again. Let her be.
