The 2004-2005 edition of the University of Arizona women’s basketball team was on display for the first time last week during its annual Red & Blue Game. Here are some very random thoughts about that scrimmage:
· Polkey and Dee-Dee are even better than last year!
· I really like this deep and talented freshman class.
· Ashley Whisonant (5-8, Fr., G, Bowie, Md.) looks like she belonged.
· Natalie Jones is really good defensively.
· Natalie Jones can be really good offensively.
· Danielle Adefeso worked really hard, which is a good sign for everyone.
· Chari Smith (6-3, Fr., F, Los Angeles, Calif.) looks like a thoroughbred.
· I hope Katrina Lindner has a productive season. She is a great kid!
· Did I say that I really like this deep freshman class?
· Palo Verde’s own Jessica Arnold looks like the real deal.
· Polkey is big.
· Polkey is fast.
· Polkey is good.
· Dee-Dee and Polkey are going to scare a lot of coaches this season!
· Anna Chappell is the kind of girl that I hope my sons marry.
· I hope Rachael Schein can get her knee healthy and contribute next season. No one works harder.
· Was it just me, or did everyone flinch every time Polkey went to the floor?
· Ch?© Oh (6-0, Fr., F, Monroe, Wash.) was better than I thought she would be.
· Have I mentioned that I like this deep freshman class?
· Linda Pace has a ton of talent. She also clearly won the Midnight Madness Dream Job competition. I loved the way she read the highlights!
· Arizona and Stanford are now, clearly, the top two programs in the Pac-10.
· Everyone is a champion at Pac-10 Media Day.
· Why isn’t the Red & Blue Game called the “White & Blue Game?”
· Polkey is good.
· Joy Hollingsworth (redshirt transfer from USF) will be a big help next year.
· You know, the more I think about it, the more I like this deep freshman class!
This should be a great season. Come out and watch the Cats play!
