On the other hand, Kelsey got called for two consecutive fouls (her 3rd and 4th) at the beginning of the second half. My first instinct was to look at the officials to see if they were Pac-10 veterans, some of whom loved to call fouls on her. Sure enough, Melissa Barlow, Brenda Pantoja, Chuck Gonzalez (all mostly competent but with the exception of Pantoja, given to the tendency of watching certain players much more closely than others).

Sometimes the complete box score is easier to analyze than Gametracker (though it does not negate the fact that UCSB sucked).

Another related note - former Cal signee Lenita Sanford finally made her Division I debut with UNLV as a starter in their exhibition vs. Grand Canyon, a good Division II program. The box score shows a line of 20 minutes, 6 points, 13 rebounds, 4 blocks, 4 PF's.

By the way, she's listed as a junior, for those who wondered whether she preserved a year of eligibility due to playing in only 1 of her 3 JC years (looks like she did not).

Will be interesting to see how she does against us when we play Texas Tech in the Las Vegas Tournament.

Thanks WayneBear for the link. If I find nothing else to do I might check which UCSB players were on the court when CSUMB hit all those threes.

I've noticed the Cal news archives contain only the box scores, not the play-by-play. Some other schools, like Furd, show both. Is there any way to remedy this, or will I have to check our opponent's site after every game?

For some stupid reason Cal stopped including the play-by-play last season. Anyone else who is annoyed by this can join me in emailing WBB Director of Operations Sarah Holsinger (sholsinger@berkeley.edu) and asking that the full box score (including the play-by-play) be posted. Sarah is very nice and usually very responsive to complaints.

Bluescriptcal impressive debut for Casey Morris! - 11-12-2010, 08:17 AM

I wish that she would have stayed at Cal. She would be in a three-guard rotation now most likely...GO BEARS!

Bluescriptcal UCSB lost 4 of 6 top scorers from last season - 11-12-2010, 08:34 AM

and 7 of 12 players from the 2009-2010 team. Please re-read my post to initiate this thread.

Kelsey Adrian's game has really dropped off. I noticed that in one of the Cal-Rutgers game she had a great game as as starter & played 30+ minutes...
Hopefully she'll find her "game" again. UCSB appears to be allowing her to play SF as opposed in inside as a post where she struggled bigtime at Cal.
Aguirre had a decent ball-handling game but didn't score much. When these small schools pull upsets-it's almost always when they go off on treys.

Sonoma State nicked the Cal men's team for 13 trifectas on Wednesday night!
Go Gauchos! GO BEARS!

I recall something she once said about preferring a run and shoot style. Perhaps she should have considered Oregon, but I don't know if Paul Westhead had been hired at the time she transferred. IMO nothing suited her skill set less than playing emergency post in Cal's inside-oriented offense. I rarely disagree with our coaches, but I believe Shantrell would have done much better.

The way I saw it most of those were in the first half and due to the freshmen playing lousy defense. We fixed that in the second half.

No Comparison Between Cal Men & UCSB Women - 11-12-2010, 10:00 AM

True. Plus, unlike UCSB's women, the Cal men still beat Sonoma St easily.

2 games into the season UCSB still has no wins, with road losses to Pepperdine by 12 and UCLA by 14 (largest lead 29). Kelsey is playing more minutes than anyone but her shooting (7 for 27) hasn't yet come around. Angelei is still starting, but played less than half of each game and had very small numbers in the stats.

Texas Tech stomped our next opponent New Mexico, in Albuquerque, 80-53. Casey apparently played a very efficient 28 minutes: 17 points on 6 for 8 shooting, with 3 boards, 2 assists, 1 steal, 1 block, and no turnovers.

The drop off in Adrian's game - 11-15-2010, 08:53 PM

may be the continuation of the shoulder problem, which is a condition. Its hard to shoot when you have major pain in your shooing shoulder.

I liked Casey, too. She worked hard and did a lot of things well.

Casey and Jenine Morris are two excellent Guards that got away. Both shot outside better than expected and additionally Casey with ballhandling abilities and Jenine a lock down defender!!
