First congratulations to Kiana Patterson as she is now 3rd on the women's all time points scored list. Second the team has few scoring options other than Patterson. They are outsized many games and injuries have limited options especially with the front court. A lack of consistency has hurt the team.

I think it is simple, they have one legitimate PF on the team...Berube. Otherwise the whole team is guards with a pretty good SF...Lydon, who is forced to play out of position

Is Coach Piper safe for another season? I was excited for you guys when you got her, but the program just hasn't gotten off the ground. The time us painfully undersized. Size WITH talent is needed. Can't win many games with a D3 lineup @ D1 level.
She's gotta be on an extremely hot seat.

I think the AD has bigger fish to fry w/ that very same question for DM. Or at least what has to happen to get them winning again. Girls have never won an NEC ever, right?

Agreed, but, at one point, Piper had them turning the corner. If anything, at all, they've regressed into only accepting mediocrity.. Playing hard, competing and the whole 9, but never winning (enough)... Her teams have always been undersized lately, always... If they do get a big, if she's taller than 6', 6'1 ish, she's not serviceable enough...Guard play has always been a strong point..

Bottom line, she needs to recruit more size, with skill, in the frontcourt (The 3, 4, and 5).... If she can't do that, then if you guys are fine with what's going on then so be it.


BTW, I agree with you 100% on DM... His teams, seem to compete, but not win enough...

CCSU basketball needs a light at the end of the tunnel sooner rather than later as a whole... Just be able to compete for a conference title at the very least.
