Anyone have any update on when Kyle might return this year and the status of Williams. I assume Williams is going to be a redshirt this year as she's been out all season.

I've learned theres a major difference in injury reporting when it comes to mens vs. women's college basketball. It's pretty much expected on the men's side to report on injuries, give the specific issue and the amount of time the player is going to out vs. the women's side it's pretty standard to not disclose any information and be very vague about it and the players return. It's very odd, IMO.

Probably because men's basketball gets gambled on all season long. I'm not even sure if you can wager on regular season women's college basketball. I don't think it's available on the online sportsbook I use but I have seen them offer betting on the women's tournament in the past.

How many betting lines are there for wbb games? If there was gambling there would be more accurate injury info.

If you watch her in the huddles she is now walking around in a boot and doing so much more easily than a couple of weeks ago. But I doubt she is released to practice and it will take her awhile to get into playing shape. I suspect we will be lucky to have her playing at 100% by the B1G tournament in early March.

Thank God for the emergence of Woltman and Learn.

I'm really impressed with Learn. She sprints back down the floor on defense and her enthusiasm on the bench is great to see. Looking for her to really develop over the next couple of years. Woltman needs to be just a little more patient taking her shots around the basket as she tends to miss too many makable shots. Both have really stepped-up BIG time with Kyle out.

Agree. As for Woltman missing bunnies, she does but so did Kyle.

Agree with what has been said. KYle is not a good jumper , it appears as if she only gets an inch or two off of the ground. Woltman needs to just relax when she is shooting bunnies but since she is not real tall I think she is always worried about getting blocked by a taller defender, but she tries hard. Learn has been very impressive, but she needs to work on jumping quicker. She sems to hesitate for a second before going up, but she gives a lot of effort. This team is fighting so hard but I hate to say it but as a whole the team lacks the talent that most of the other teams have. In womens BB there ae very few great players who can just take over a game, but KG needs to get a couple if we are ever to contend for a NC.
