ND can’t win against better teams without her playing hero ball, no depth currently. When she shoots well, the rest of the team plays better.
So being a ball hog is worth it!
I've only watched the women once thus far this season on TV--and the thing that drove me nuts was how Arike ignored passing to her teammates--even on fast breaks.
I really can't watch that shit and why I've only watched once.
She has 5 so far today and is averaging 2.79/game before today. She's third on the team in total assists and 4th in per game average. She's behind the four players that have been playing the point.
Does she shot too much at times? Yes. But to act like it is some huge problem and she never passes the ball is overreacting.
I'll take 27 points on 19 shots
overlooked value: gets fouled a lot, gets other team in foul trouble
