Regarding the FB thing, probably not. That's a CUSA thing, and we don't play a road game against a CUSA team this year.

I think the team plays at or above the talent level most (but not all) of the time. It's the talent level that needs to be addressed.

News isn't any better here as the women lose by 18 at home to a bad WSU team. This article is revealing as one of the players says the others now have film on us and have us figured out:

With 6 days to deal with that the staff didn't get it done. Good thing TD held off on that lifetime extension some were promoting.

Film can't explain this kind of turnaround. Stockton's been here 25 years...what's not on film anyway.
Dannen will have quite an agenda this offseason. At least 4 sports will need, if not a new head coach, some major staff turnover. Dannen has quite an agenda ahead: at least 4 sports will need major staff turnover, if not new head coachs.

Dannen won’t touch Women’s basketball this year. Not after the lovefest they had for Stockton’s 25 years last night in the Glazer club. Probably too much celebrating so they came out today and sucked. And forget about an at large bid to the NCAA tournament, too many losses.

This team got off to a great start and is going through a rough stretch. I bet Lisa Stockton pulls them out of it and they're playing much better at season's end going into the AAC tournament. She didn't forget how to coach in two weeks time.

Take a look at twitter....it's been " 25 years of Stockton; let's bow to our queen" for the last 3 months. It's embarrassing.
I know she's going nowhere...but they could use a recruiter. Last time there was a staff opening, she pulled a mid-stage Conroy and hired a friend. Hire a recruiter.

Big game for the Lady Wave tonight. USF has been a nemesis to Lisa Stockton since we joined the AAC. It's time for a little payback. I'd like to see them break out of their mid-season slump and make a strong run going into the conference tournament.

IT STARTS TONIGHT, LADIES!

Yep. USF has won the last 10 straight. Tulane last won in 2009.

USF wins 50-45 for its 11th straight over the Wave. Ends it 4 game losing streak. Lady Bulls did it with only 7 players available tonight.

They have three players out for the season:

South Florida beat the Green Wave 73-46 in Tampa on Jan. 19. The Bulls had four key players out, three for the season. In Wednesday's game, Alyssa Rader, a 6-foot-2 junior post, will be back in the starting lineup.

That's from the Advocate article before this game.

This loss follows a loss to lowly ECU.

Good thing they were sitting on the beach in August....that was a good way to prepare for the season.
Changes need to be made. I doubt TD does a thing.

Paying the WBall coach at TU $500k is outrageous. No one can convince me otherwise. Lisa wins more than shes losees but the money is better spent elsewhere.

The WBB is young, however the two seniors (Schulte and Wyatt) showed some promise as freshman and are now terrible. They shoot lay ups and don't even hit the rim. Shulte shot a lay up several games ago and never even hit the backboard much less the rim. Pitiful

It’s a shame because we had such a great start to the year. Things have since went off course. I hate to say this but the NIT now unlikely. It would have been a good year to challenge UCONN because it’s their weakest team since joining the AAC. Even USF is not having their typical year. Missed opportunities for sure. Hopefully things can turn around and by some chance we win the tournament.
Maybe sharing a game and practice facility with the men’s team is starting rub off on them. ;)

It does seem eerily similar to the men in that they don't seem to be able to run offense to get the open shot and they turn the ball over a lot when pressured. I am starting to wonder if the staff doesn't need some sort of shakeup. It's been the same bunch for a long time.

Two Ncaa tourney’s in 15 years. Had a good run in the MID 90’s. Never past the second round.

Facts only.

Unless she is injured, conference play and/or the grind of college basketball seems to have taken a toll on her. She doesn't seem to be as sure and aggressive as when the season started. Finally being called a couple of times for that carry-over dribble habit may have slowed her down a bit. She also doesn't seem to have much confidence shooting, which has made her somewhat one-dimensional. While she seems quite talented and energetic, her freshmanness is showing.

They have 15 scholarships available: they fill only 13 year after year (Stockton was whining about 15 saying it allowed U Conn to hoard players). At least two of the coaches were sitting on the beach in August right before school started. Frey probably does most of the work (My speculation).
The twitter feed is nothing but a coronation of Stockton.
I don't see a sense of urgency, to say the least.

The team is now in freefall. Stockton needs to retire.

Sad to say but I finally agree. And I’d like to add Dunleavy needs to resign or get fired on the men’s side. Dannen needs to get his act together in basketball or his job should be in jeopardy.
Both programs have collapsed on his watch.
