I like the recruits coming to the Gophers women's basketball team in 2012-13 and the young players. The outlook should dramatically improve in the next couple of years. The Gophers signed star 6' 2" forward Jackie Johnson of Eden Prairie. Johnson is the top prospect from the state of Minnesota, the #11 ranked player at her position in America, and one of the top 100 female basketball players in the country. Johnson was Minnesota Miss Basketball. She should form a powerful team with current rookie guard Rachel Banham, who also was the top prospect from Minnesota, Minnesota Miss Basketball, and winner of several Player of the Year awards. The Gophers are reloaded for the future. Jackie Johnson is coached by former NBA player Chris Carr in Eden Prairie. It's too bad the Gophers lost freshman G/F Kayla Hirt of Bemidji to a knee injury. Hirt was one of the top 100 high school players in America and a nominee for Gatorade Player of the Year, averaging 26 points per game and 14 rebounds in high school before blowing out her other knee her senior year. The loss of Hirt hurt. Two other U of Minnesota high school signings also look solid for upcoming seasons. First, the Gophers signed three-time all-conference point guard Shayne Mullaney, also of Eden Prairie, who is a prolific scorer (averaging over 20 points a game), a top-seven player from the state of Minnesota, and daughter of former-Minnesota Vikings Mark Mullaney. Second, the Gophers signed two-time all conference guard Mikayla Bailey of Osseo, a top-twenty Minnesota prospect and a tough defender. The young and upcoming players look solid. Current Gophers sophomore G/F Kionna Kellogg has been solid already. Kellogg was All-State and a McDonald's All-America nominee in high school.

Who should we fire first? Borden or the Stribe staff? First - way to go Stribe!! Great coverage of the women's game that was played 12 hours ago, the details are incredible. Go to espn if you really want to know if they played a game or not. Second Borden should be fired, 10 years of bottom feeding, she passed up top recruits for second tier players. Anyone out there that thinks loading up a team with Eden Prairie talent - I mean players - is going to help this team does not know much about basketball. Fire Borden and fire the stribe staff.
