    XU Women's Thread 2022-2023

    The Ladies' team has announced their non-conference schedule (Link)
    "He's a little bit ball-dominant, he needs to have the ball in his hands, and he's not a good shooter." Ball-dominant isn't that a nice way of calling someone a ball hog? Where is my Jay Bilas Thesaurus?

    Looks about right for a team that (once again) doesn't return many contributors from last season. Last year's two leading scorers now play for Seton Hall and Marquette, and last year's fourth-leading scorer, the Big East Scholar Athlete of the Year, now plays for Duquesne.

    Going to be a young team again, but maybe this is the year things start to come together.

    The turnover on this team has been an issue for years now. You can't rebuild every year and be competitive.

    Big East preseason coaches' poll

    1. UConn (10) 100
    2. Creighton 89
    3. Villanova (1) 83
    T-4. DePaul 68
    T-4. Seton Hall 68
    6. Marquette 56
    7. St. John's 47
    8. Providence 34
    T-9. Butler 21
    T-9. Georgetown 21
    11. Xavier 18

    It's notable that Butler, which went 1-27 overall and 0-18 in league play last year, is picked ahead of Xavier.

    From the release:
    Xavier went 9-21 overall and 4-16 in BIG EAST play in 2021-22. The Musketeers return two starters from that team, including their assists and steals leader in Shaila Beeler, and No. 3 scorer Aanya Harris. XU adds a number of new faces, including Ole Miss transfer Taylor Smith and Kent State product Nila Blackford. Mel Moore is entering her fourth season as head coach of the Musketeers.
