Mercer 75
Wofford 54

SoCon game highlights clip showed the Lady Terriers turning the ball over a couple times on cross court passes which led to layups. The size difference among Lady T players vs. Mercer was really noticeable on the computer screen.

Concur with Terrier-nation comments about the team's future.

These are young ladies with potential. They are not the most talented team in the league, but they are much better than this, and they deserve better. And there is no reason why we cannot be competitive in the SoCon. It is a shame.

When will Wofford make a change? The players deserve a chance at a new direction.

The current team leadership has been in place eleven years, but the performance of this year's team (8-22) was as poor as any. They have essentially been cellar dwellers, year in and year out. Their losses have generally been by wide margins; 20+ turnover games have been routine. Generally speaking, the players and team chemistry have not trended upward; quite the opposite. I have seen them play, and while they sometimes play hard, they often do not play with great intelligence, consistency, or confidence, which is for the coach to determine. That "exciting signee" has not arisen. There should have been some serious momentum that transferred from the men's program, but not so. Noah Dahlman, Brad Loesing, or their ilk could fix that. By comparison, look at the women's soccer, volleyball, tennis, and track/cross country programs, which have competed with increasing success. The lady roundballers deserve the same, now.

When Dr. Samhat announced the Jerry Richardson Indoor Stadium, he said it would be the home of our "Women's and Men's Basketball Teams" - in that order. Maybe he was just being politically correct, but I would hope he has greater plans for the women's team.

I don't think anyone expects championships every season out of the women's basketball program, but competitiveness is reasonable. I also think building a program takes time, but we have applied time to this equation and the results are the same and the trend is negative. Time for a new equation. Question is whether Wofford is willing to stomach the unpleasant task of making a change here. Time will tell, but accepting mediocrity becomes a cancer in any program. How long until other motivated coaches start to think they can get by with less effort and poorer results because they see certain coaches getting away with it?

Our student athletes are not here because they put athletics first. They are here because they have athletic ability and skills, and enjoy the game and want to have success with it, but Wofford sports is first about the academic opportunity afforded by the scholarship. They believe, rightly, that Wofford offers an academic environment and opportunity well above the norm. Is it fair, then, to these student athletes to allow them to languish on a sports team that is perennially far below the norm and fails to come close to developing and nourishing their athletic skills and aspirations on par with their development on the academic side? Resoundingly, no. Dealing intelligently with a sport team that fails this badly on a routine basis is part of running a successful college. Would we have tolerated this in football? Men's basketball?

We could be doing something like this. We could have the ladies team that plays smart, together, and with consistency. http://www.news-record.com/news/columns ... 6682f.html

Why not US? We are already committing the necessary resources; why not also provide leadership?
