Abby Anderson is not the most prolific shot blocker in Lady Griz history (Currently ranks 4th all time), but what she does when blocking shots is what may be prolific to us. All we know is 63% of her career blocks have turned into an extra possession for the Lady Griz. We don't have or even know if a state for that exists but it is one to consider when analyzing the success of the Lady Griz defense this year in regards to FG%. At 200 total blocks she currently ranks 4th in Lady Griz history. She is also currently 25th in the nation for blocked shots 56 total (2.2 BPG).
Like many of the Idaho State players, Estefania Ors is a very versatile player that can do a little bit of everything really well on the floor. Ors is a Swiss Army knife that provides stability to the Bengals team full of veterans.
Here is some film we put together on Idaho's Louise Forsyth few weeks ago. This film features a 4 set scoring series for the transfer from Gonzaga.
Here is some film of our 3 point shooting breakdown of Katie Peneueta from Sac State. She has started to contribute in a huge way for Sac State and helping them win nine out of the last 10 games. Here are some numbers (15 Games)
Four sets the Lady Griz love to use for Sammy Fatkin. We still wonder why more teams don't try and force her left because when she gets to her right hand she is a dangerous player in the Big Sky Conference.
In our first Art of the P&R we focused on PPP of the point guard and Daylani Ballena lead that category and still does.
This resilient Jr. from Spokane Valley, WA strikes us at BSB as a throwback in a sense. In Tomekia’s frosh year she had a fairly large role on a fairly experienced team. Had solid numbers averaging almost 26 MPG, 8.5 PPG, 3.7 RPG, and shooting 44FG% and 33% 3FG. Her Sophomore season for some reason, her role changed, Tomekia’s minutes decreased and her numbers did too. Only averaging 13.9 MPG, 3.3 PPG, 2.3 RPG, and shooting 42.4 FG% and 15% 3FG.
Basketball players across the country at all levels will tell you they just want a chance. The 6’5 Sophomore from Adelaide, AUS has done just that. She has been playing some really good basketball and has also placed herself in the top tier of post players in the conference.
Eastern Washington has several talented freshmen on their roster in Coach Gleason’s inaugural campaign, but Jaydia Martin stands out above all the others. Already one of the best scoring freshmen in the country, when evaluating this sensational freshman a few areas stand out regarding her offensive skill set.
When thinking of players in the Big Sky Conference that set themselves apart, Carmen Gfeller comes to mind. The redshirt Junior from Colfax, WA is the classic example of skill over athletic ability. One can come to the conclusion that she has spent a lot of time working on her craft and getting a lot of shots up over the years. Great feet, smooth shooting stroke, and a solid frame for getting things done in the paint in the Big Sky Conference, Gfeller is a coaches dream.
Taking a look into another of the Big Sky Conferences MVP caliber players, this week we dive into Darian White.
Extremely versatile player that provides a big-time match-up issue with other teams. Skilled enough to handle the ball in transition and in pic n roll situations, but also big and strong enough to post up and score down low on the block and out to 15 feet. There are not too many players with her skillset and size in the Big Sky Conference.
