frustration
Intellectually I know that injury and illness (especially during a pandemic) is nobody's fault. Still its unbelievably frustrating to watch our season go down the drain. Coach Foley said it will be extremely difficult to get his team back ready to play after a month off. Still, with Foley being an elite coach, having decades of experience, and likely having talent near the top of the league, I believe the women's team will be "okay" by season's end and could be a force in the tournament. The situation for the men's team seems more dire, as we will continue to be short-handed due to season ending injuries and weren't expected to do much in the league under the best of circumstances. I think a healthy team could have surprised some folks, but we are never going to get fully healthy.

RE: frustration
I agree. It kills me, and I can't imagine what the players are going through. I hate it for them more than me.
And it seems the covid quarantine is just the beginning of the process to getting back on the floor. The hard part is getting in to see a cardiologist because each player with covid has to have their heart checked. Foley said he still has a player who hasn't been cleared to play because of the heart problems covid causes.

And I believe we were picked last in the conference two years ago when we won the out right championship.

I was certainly hopeful we could surprise this year as well. Unfortunately, we have just had so many obstacles thrown in our path.

And this brings up another question. There is much discussion on the asu board and the SBC board about some schools just are not testing in order to keep from cancelling games. Are these schools not giving their athletes all the information they need to make a smart decision concerning their health? Are the schools playing with the lives of their athletes? Covid can cause Myocarditis which is why athletes have to be cleared by a cardiologist before they can get back on the floor. Hank Gathers basically died in the middle of a game from cardiomyopathy which is related to Myocarditis according to the googles.
Thoughts?

I also haven't noticed very many P5 schools cancelling games. I admit I haven't really followed it very closely, so I don't know for sure how many have had games cancelled. But I wonder if they are not testing, as much as us, or maybe have the money to have better testing, monitoring, and contact tracing in place.
