30-16 after 1 qtr, Billikens looking good, but this is a D2 team.  The newcomers look good so far, none as tall as Brooke Flowers, but they take up space inside, Shavers can get up there when she jumps, Peyton Kennedy has really been shooting well,

The offensive power is still here for sure.

53-29 at the half, I realize this is against a D2 team, but they are passing the eyeball test. On offense they have been going directly for the basket a lot. Kyla McMakin and Julia Martinez look the same as last year. Kennedy Calhoun looks improved running the offense and really bringing energy on defense. Peyton Kennedy looks like a much improved shooter from last year, if she can keep it up she will be great. Camree Clegg has also been hitting 3’s well. Looks like everyone found their way into the game in the first half from the bench. They fouled a bit too much and need to clean that up, but that’s the only criticism I can come up with.

Ladies up 80-49 end of 3. Julia Martinez is a whirlwind out there with 8 pts, 6 boards, 6 assists, and 3 steals. They’ve forced 20 turnovers to only 5, but are getting beat on the boards by 7.

Peyton Kennedy had 22 points before the 3rd quarter ended. A lot to like in viewing the game. Looks like they will replace Brooke Flowers by getting all forwards rotated in the game and have them play high energy all the time. They look like all of them can play . Again, this is a D2 team they are playing, but again, they are doing what they need to do and are looking good. Clean up the fouls is all I can say, some were ticky-tack by the refs, but not all. Relocated to Hermann. Roll Bills! Or, as the saying was from last year, attack and advance!

By the way, the assistant coach Jimmy Colloton looks a lot like @Pistol. 😀

Oh shoot, yeah he does 🤣

Assistant Coach Jimmy Colloton is an extremely good looking guy, I agree completely.

Shunteria Anumele, a 5-9 G from Stephen F. Austin (also called Fort Bend Austin) HS in Sugar Land, Texas. She is new at Austin HS after transferring from Royal HS in Brookshire.

Combo guard. Stat sheet stuffer. She can really score but routinely puts up triple nickel kind of games. She's listed as 5-9 or 5-10 and is really solid and physical. One scout called her an "army tank on rollerblades" this summer. Gets to the rim, crafty handles, can pull up and shoot. Super competitive and hardworking. Looks like a strong character fit from what I'm finding.

Had offers from Seton Hall, SMU, South Florida, Central Florida, SIUC, UTEP, WKU, Liberty, Coastal Carolina, Hawaii, UTSA, Georgia Southern, Old Dominion, New Mexico State, Sam Houston State, UAPB, UC-Riverside, UT-Arlington, Texas Southern, Jacksonville.

All of these offers came during calendar year 2023. She entered the year with lower division offers and interest. Late bloomer, stock riser- whatever you want to call her, she blew up fast. Had a huge spring and summer in AAU.

Visited St. John's (no offer), Liberty, SMU, others. Looks like she may have committed to Liberty in June and then reopened her recruitment.

Third commitment of the 2024 class after Hannah Wallace from Cardinal Ritter and Mia Bergstrom from Saint Viator HS in Arlington Heights, IL.

Mia Bergstrom, 5-10 SG/W from St Viator in Arlington Heights, IL is also a 2024 commitment

They are giving away free mini basketballs with team signatures printed on them at tonight’s game. Also, when are they going to sell those band jerseys? Awesome looking gear.

They'd have to let us start drinking again if they're going to sell them, lol.

Go to the manufacturer, get a bunch made, sell them on line and at the little shop at Chaifetz, there is money to be made selling those, they look awesome.

The last time that happened, though, they refused to sell beer to a guy wearing a rugby. Unless they lifted the drinking in uni rule from the band, I'd prefer fans not have them 😅
