UCLA’s next NCAA tournament hurdle is USF’s Courtney Williams

By Jack Wang, Los Angeles Daily News

It’s no secret what makes South Florida go.

Courtney Williams is the nation’s 10th-leading scorer, a 5-foot-8 guard who can single-handedly change the flow of a game. She is coming off one of her most prolific performances of the season, pouring in 31 points to break her own school postseason record. And despite her size, she averages more than eight rebounds per game, and leads her team with 29 blocks.

That’s the player that the UCLA women’s basketball team will try to slow down on Monday night at Pauley Pavilion.

“She’s like the Energizer bunny,” Cori Close said. “She can go and go and go.”......... Read More

Good read but can't expect more neutrality from a homer paper!

UCLA is smaller and faster than CSU.  Hopefully, we can work the ball inside but also have Kitja start lighting things up from the outside.

I know they are going to double and triple team CW and that tends to frustrate her.  If we cant balance the scoring, we lose.  Need Stringfield, Jenkins, and at least one more (Laura or Laksa) to be major contributors.

Agreed.  We can't let what happened in the opening quarter against CSU to happen this time.  We need other players to step up.

Maybe Jose will put her in the 6th woman role again to mix things up.  Seemed to work last time.

Although Stringfield tends to take too many shots for her not-so-Courtney level of talent, it really will benefit the team as a whole if she starts hitting open shots quickly tonight so Courtney can have some more freedom.  If they shut CW down, it'll be up to Stringfield to drop 20-25 points and Jenkins to grab 20 rebounds. CW will need to recognize very quickly tonight if she is able to get things going or if she is simply outmatched. She'll need to use herself as a decoy, crash the boards and get out in front when running the floor after a defensive rebound. She may be going to the WNBA, but she needs to play each remaining game wholeheartedly because when she loses, she is done playing forever as a USF Bull.

Yes...someone MUST step up besides CW.  Needs to be more of a team effort.

Seemed to work???  We cant have a repeat of the last game.  Need the others combined to score more than CW.

Player          Minutes     Points

Ferreira           40            1

Jespersen       27            0

Jenkins           40            5

Stringfield       39            7

Laksa             13            3

Williams         35           31

Another interesting stat from the CSU game was free throws.  CSU went 1-2 from the line while USF went 9-14.  Hopefully we can keep our fouls and turnovers to a minimum.

Well, I meant that it fired her up.  A repeat of Courtney's performance would be just fine.
