Would love to see Pop up here as a Lynx. I doubt if McWilliams-Franklin will be back next year. I just wonder if Pop's hard work will be able to overcome her athletic ceiling at this level. Nobody works harder! I have to say her bruiser game will fit right in in today's WNBA.
"There are five real good recruits in the state. We got three of them. One couldn’t get into school, and the other went to (the University of) Iowa...which is about the same thing." - Coach Johnny Orr
Ten of the 36 (three rounds of 12) are from the Big 12, including five of the top 12.

Reason: Put players in ranking order
I can see that the Lynx wants her. She's the type of player that the Lynx needs: someone who's not afraid of attacking the basket to give another threat besides Whalen and Brunson. Adair and Harris are not the type of player
Ironically Joslyn Tinkle who was very highly sought after and chose Stanford over ISU among other is rated at 34 in this. Guess we know which program can develop the players!
Tinkle would have probably started at ISU - I look for her to have a big year at Stanford this year. That is the problem with Stanford and other schools like them, they fill their 15 player roster, which means 10 people on the bench....Some 4 and 5 star players at TN and Stanford almost never see the court. WBB should really go to 13 scholly rosters.

Title IX has almost guaranteed that won't happen. When looking for equitable number of overall scholarship opportunities with the inequities that football causes, that is why you have more schollies in WBB and more women's sports.
