: : Aquino has been the subject of more talk than any player this season. She has suited up but hasn't played a game. Injury? Passport problems? Pregnancy? Don't laugh, that last one is what many on OSU boards were saying. At any rate, she won't play this season and next season, she will be a RS Freshman along with two other post players.
: : Good luck to her but I honestly don't think we will ever see her play at OSU. Rueck says he's redshirting her for development.

: We saw this young lady at the Redondo Uniion tourney. She appears to be in good spirits as she told us she is red shirting this season. We told her to stay in the lab as we look forward to her growth and development during her college years.
Hopefully this was just a case of them wanting to to use the year for development and there is not an injury or something else.
Assuming that, it is really not surprising. She was practicing and playing against much shorter people in high school and didn't get good coaching (at least last year).
The OSU coach is really, really, good. If she can add some size (weight) and put in the work, he will help make her a contributor at OSU.
Good luck to her!
