RE: WBB Preview
This will be the most quirky BB team ever on campus. Coach reminds me of the the D'Antoni brothers. Very interesting offensive philosophy of pro-style individual shot creation and the other 4 players reading and reacting to the ball handler. Very few sets Thursday, 2 top-of the key weaves and maybe two high-low sets were called, everything else was create and attack. The defense is also very pro style, few double-teams and no zones.
Coach sat on the press table and mentored the girls more than coached, she wanted their input to plays/issues before she added her thoughts. If you like the Marshall MBB style, you will love Coach Milton-Jones' philosophy.

RE: WBB Preview
My thoughts of the game. Glad they lowered the fake crowd noise as it was a bit much at the beginning. Coach Milton-Jones style is night and day difference from Coach McCray-Penson. Yeah she seems to be more free with them I am not saying this is what it will be but I must admit my immediate gut reaction was please don’t tell me we have another Barefoot.

Barefoot is a horrible coach and had zero control of her players. They ran the show behind the scene. Jones has this team’s respect based on her own career alone. I too was a fan of Nikki’s style and Jones is way way way different. I’m hoping for the best but yea...we’ll see!

Was pretty worried after that 1st quarter. But DAMN did the Monarchs have a good second quarter (outscored vcu 25-9). Lets keep this up!

I know this is anecdotal, but that wasn't what I saw in the locker room. Maybe it went that direction near the end of her tenure, but Karen was clearly in charge from my standpoint. I was shocked at the lack of technical "X's and O's" instruction and adjustments. She focused on effort and was very animated in the locker room.

RE: WBB Preview
Great game by the ladies! That second quarter was insane, I was worried we'd give it away at the end of the game but they gritted through it and took it in the end. Great to see VCU lose.

Gonna give probs to Maggie too. She's been struggling this year but the tough bucket+1 late in OT put us 2 scores ahead and forced VCU to start fouling and basically clinched the victory.

Nice gutty win, over a good VCU team. The 1st qtr VCU gave us all we wanted, then we came back with a great 2nd qtr. So glad to see Maggie make a big play in OT. Also congrats to Victoria Morris, with her career high 31 points. I thought Carter played big with 9 pts and 8 reb, playing major minutes

All Monarchs scored in a 73-39 rout over USC Upstate as ODU improved to 3-1. Right now the next game is Jan 1, vs FIU. Coach Jones says they're close to scheduling two more games one for the break and one after. Fun to see a team with Monarch on their chest beat the snot out of someone

RE: WBB Preview
Does Victoria Morris get an extra year of eligibility due to COVID? I wasn't sure if basketball athletes are going to get the same exception that football did.

They extended that same rule to winter athletes. So this year won’t take a year of eligibility away from the roster.
