: : : : : : : : : : : : Just a shout out to those Katie Lou jealous doubters/haters. She only shot 10 for 10 from 3, ended with 40 points. Remember? She can't play D, she can't create her own shots, she's nothing without a screen, she's not quick enough for college play, she's only a flopper who can shoot FT's, we've had much better players come from so cal.....wrong on all fronts. She will be the one of the best player to emerge from so cal, yes, like Miller, like Turasai, and others. Why were you all so cruel, so hateful, so negative about this spectacular athlete and great, humble kid-because of jealousy. Sorry she schooled your daughter, so sorry, but, let's celebrate this great player now that she is becoming a megastar at UCONN, not tear her down. My daughter's a great player, D1 and all...but she's not Lou. Nobody is.

: : : : : : : : : : :
: : : : : : : : : : : The people on this site are wrong the majority of time and usually have no idea what they are talking about. Anyone who said she wasn't going to be great in college doesn't know how to judge talent.

: : : : : : : : : : Great players that UConn already has has allow your daughter to become very good because her opponents have their hands full guarding all the other players to prevent them from getting layups. With UConn you pick your poison. There has been many games Katie Lou hasn't come thru and shot well. Odds are better to let her shoot and hope she's not on target so you have a chance to win.

: : : : : : : : : That's one of the dumbest things I've heard in a great while. Pick your poison and let her shoot.... ridiculous.

: : : : : : : : She has had some real bad nights off balance not concentrating, bricking, etc. UConn almost lost those nights. Katie is good cause UConn has every weapon in their arsenal.

: : : : : : : Totally agree with post above. Look at the South Carolina game where she was 2-12 from the field and 0-5 from the 3 point line. Yet they still won because of the other great players on this team.
: : : : : : : Remind me again how many CIF titles this girl won. No denying she is a great shooter but she needs others so you can't key on her.

: : : : :
: : : : : : The haters for KLS are real.

: : : : : : Is she perfect? No. But no one is.

: : : : : : But let's see. Geno is the best coach in the country and runs the best program in the country. The expectations are off the charts.

: : : : : : He picked her. She was Freshman All-American last year. Will probably be All-American this year while averaging 20+ PPG and has improved all those deficiencies - defense, rebounding, getting to the hoop.

: : : : : : I'm not saying she is as good as Cheryl Miller, Diana Tarausi, Lisa Leslie, Cynthia Cooper, Tina Thompson, etc. from So Cal.

: : : : : : But she's a damn good player and pretty much every coach in the country would love to have her.

: : : : : : Side note: If you are not watching the UCONN series on HBO - you should be. Interesting look behind the curtain.

: : : : : : Undisputed SoCal finest G-Baller. Recognize and respect one of our very own all time great!

: : : : Ha ha ha...

: : : : Sure, let the 44% three-point shooter shoot. Good idea. She's made 2x as many 3s as anyone on her team with the best percentage. She's 85% from the FT line and second in attempts on the team. She has a positive assist:turnover ratio.

: : : : The argument easily could be made that she makes life easier for her teammates because she draws so much attention because she's such a great shooter, which gives her teammates more space to shoot easier shots.

: : : : But, by all means, don't stop the hate. I'm sure you have good reasons to bash a talented young woman who was very respectful the one time that I met her in HS.

: : : Katie is easily guarded by one player. She needs several screens to get her open. Her teammates make her a player, not the other way around.

: : She's so easily guarded that she's shooting 44% from 3 and nearly 50% from the field. Goodness, imagine how good she could be if she wasn't so easy to guard!

: If I was the opposing Coach, my choice is to guard the screener rolling to the basket for an easy layup or give Lou the outside shot. You must be an idiot

But, 44% from 3 is the same as the roller shooting 65%. Also, it's not an either or question unless we're playing 2v2.
