WBB vs Rice today
We are up 23-20 at the half. Half of Rice’s points have come from their 6’9 center. She sort of moves like the aliens at the end one Close Encounters of the Third Kind, but you can’t teach 6’9.

Down 30-36 after 3. We are really struggling to get open looks.

First time I've been able to go watch them. Seemed like the Rice center's mere presence prevented them from doing the things they wanted to do.

This was a frustrating game to watch. Not sure what our game plan was to deal with their center ... she basically shut our whole offense down late in the game.

Based off of pictures their center looked 7 foot.

RE: WBB vs Rice today
She was on the bench as a redshirt when they came to town last year and she seemed very immobile just walking around then. I didnt think she would be that effective, but boy was I wrong.

In action she doesnt really have to be that mobile. She is just so much taller than anyone we have that she can affect not only drives to the basket, she can also challenge midrange jumpers. On one play Saturday we faked a three, took one dribble inside the arc and shot a mid range jumper. Their center took one long step from the paint and blocked the jumper even though she was 10 feet away when our player initially pulled up to shoot.
Rice has two very athletic wings with good size and they surround them with shooters. Just a very good basketball team.

6'9". Googled it during the game. It was profound seeing the difference between her and every single other person on the court.

Their center basically jogged from basket to basket and held her arms out at times.

She didn't really have to do anything. she was constantly winded too. Nobody on our team could get her moving out from under the basket mainly on defense. That exception was blocking Miyah Barnes inside the 3pt line shot late in 4th quarter.

On offense, she was their designated screener but she just walked around setting picks and on rare occasion, would do the screen and roll.

Oh snap!! I recognize who the center is! She was on that TLC show "My Giant Life"! Here is a clip when she gets ready for prom back in HS.
