Women's Basketball Recruiting
If a thread already exists for Lady Monarchs basketball recruiting, you need to pardon me. I searched a few pages back, didn't find one, therefore, here we are:

From what we know, here is who we have coming:

Chelisa Painter, transfer from George Washington, sat out last year, eligible this year.
Destinee Young.
Ije Ajemba
Odegua Oigbokie.
Jennie Simms, transfer from West Virginia, will sit out this year, eligible 2014.
Annika Holopainen, transfer from University of Portland, will sit out this year, eligible 2014

and then some great news today:

Karen is turning things around real fast and way beyond the expectations of most of us. Thanks, Karen!
Oooh, ...it feels good again to be a Monarch. AIM HIGH, Ladies!!!

Otherwise, I'm lookin' forward to seeing her in two years. She sounds like a great player.

Not sure, but I think the NCAA clearing house only allows so many attempts per 1 calendar year.

RE: WOMEN'S BASKETBALL RECRUITING
Coach b has done a great job and I expect we will be in good shape for this year. The fact she had successful past players come back shows an understanding of what wbb for odu has achieved and will achieve again

I think she has the program on the right track

RE: WOMEN'S BASKETBALL RECRUITING
So If I understand this right ......Tyshara Fleming will not be eligible till next year 2014, is that right?

Sorry, for my confusion. EDIT I see 2 years out 2015 OK

Let me also mention. I love Karen B, She is a ball of fire and has such a passion for her players and the game. She will be a cherished treasure for Old Dominion over the years.

Aim High

Two years is a long time. I would not count her as a Monarch until if and when she signs her scholarship.

RE: WOMEN'S BASKETBALL RECRUITING
Coach Barefoot is slowly building a team that can eventually compete at respectable levels. Getting a verbal commitment from an ESPN Top 100 Recruit (2016 Class) is certainly moving in the right direction.
Great pick up. Job well done, Coach Barefoot and entire Lady Monarch Staff!

Thanks for the update. Ladyswish also covers it in this piece that I copied from her blog, again all this by Ladyswish:

Who's coming

Gianna Smith, 5-10 G/F, Norfolk (Lake Taylor)
- 16.2 points, 11.2 rebounds, 3.2 steals, 2.8 assists as a senior
- First-team All-Tidewater by The Virginian-Pilot
- First Team All-State

Rhaven Kemp, 5-6 G, Jackson, Tenn. (Eastern Florida State Junior College)
- 3.4 ppg and 1.3 apg as a sophomore
- All-time assist leader at Liberty Tech High (571)

Carolina Bernardeco, 5-4 G, Lisbon, Portugal
- 17-year-old who played point guard for U-18, U-16 Portuguese national team

Makayla Timmons, 5-7 G, Columbia, Tenn. (Columbia Central)
- All-time leading scorer (1,640 points); also holds school records in high jump and long jump
- MVP of her district as a senior
- Second team All-USA Tennessee
- Played for four different coaches in high school

Aneesah Daniels, 6-0 F, Decatur, Ga., (Clemson, Alabama)
- Redshirt senior who is immediately eligible as she graduated from Clemson in May. Has not played since the 2011-12 season at Alabama; scored 7 points and 6 rebounds for Alabama in Paradise Jam (Virgin Islands) game against the Lady Monarchs -- which was Karen Barefoot's first victory at ODU; Never played at Clemson after sitting out a year and being sidelined the following year with a neck injury

Assistant coach Jermaine Woods replacing Richard Fortune, now at VCU. Norfolk native Woods comes to ODU from Virginia Tech and will be reunited with Smith, who played her first three years at Maury High where he was coach.

Karen Barefoot's collection of guards looks impressive on paper, but we give the nod to Kemp to get the early playing time given her junior college experience. While her numbers don't overwhelm, she came off the bench, saving her best game for postseason -- an 18-point effort in the NJCAA Region VIII tournament. She will be a junior and could challenge sophomore Ashley Jackson for point guard.

The ODU faithful with Ticha memories still lingering fondly in their minds will clamor to see Bernardeco, but adjusting to the American game will be part of her learning curve. Smith and Timmons both come in as promising freshmen on a team that needs to find somebody besides Jennie Simms to share the offensive load. Given Daniels has only one year, she's the logical choice, but conditioning will be key as she's sat out for three seasons.

Note: Tyshara Fleming, the 6-4 center from Virginia Beach's Salem High, who went to Northwest Florida State College in 2013 with the intent of transferring to ODU in two years, committed to Florida in January. She averaged 7 points and 7 rebounds in one year of junior college play.

KB is getting it done on the recruiting front. Now needs to have it bear fruit on the court.
