Yes. Cubaj covered for Hermosa’s shortcomings. She has always tended to reach up for rebounds without jumping, and her hands aren’t strong enough to hold onto the ball. She has a nice soft touch when she shoots, but she can’t seem to get open shots since Lorela graduated.Really miss Cubaj. Hermosa’s soft and nobody else rebounds.
They won today.Seems like this is going to be a long year for the women's team....
What’s the deal with Hermosa? Only played 7 minutes vs Belmont - injured, or just benched due to ineffectiveness?Nice comeback win against a good Belmont team. We were up by 12 at the half and down 45-50 with about 2 minutes to play in the 4th. Scored 13 points in the last 2 minutes of the game to win 58-52. This is a good resume win. We play at Michigan State on Thursday in the Big Ten - ACC challenge. Then at Belmont next Sunday.
I do not know the reason Nell has cut Hermosa's minutes. That said, it could be either and the evidence on the floor would be the same. She has not played very well this year and the athleticism of our recent opponents has amplified her lack of mobility and assertiveness.What’s the deal with Hermosa?

And Love has also been ineffective as an inside presence - maybe just still getting used to a new position this year? I envisioned her as a great backfill for Strautmane, but she hasn’t shown much so far this season.This is the longest any GT HC has gone with shuffling lineups that I can ever remember(which has been since the inception) ?
Why doesn’t Ines or Boswell get a chance? Admittedly, I don’t watch practice.
Nerea is definitely not aggressive enough. Lorella was her buffer and made up for our lack of rebounding skills. A skill set that takes hustle and positioning. Desire, mostly. I did it at my 5’11” and have a crooked nose that bled every game to prove it.
One of those rare games they won from the free throw line. Solid road win. Interesting that Hermosa didn’t even get the start tonight.We beat Sparty!!!
Or at the end. Thought about her when Aranaz shot the desperate 3 ball with the clock winding down. Hermosa is actually a good shooter around the key.One of those rare games they won from the free throw line. Solid road win. Interesting that Hermosa didn’t even get the start tonight.
I like this more active lineup. We have some depth and Nell seems to be getting more comfortable going to her bench. Ines is a good example. Nice win.We beat Sparty!!!
