        It doesn't seem like a bad signing class at least on paper considering HCKA is somewhat in limbo. Hard to know for sure what you are getting with the foreign players. Maybe the 6-3 Mariama Sow out of Sengal via New Mexico Junior College will be another Jane Asinde who is from Uganda via Grayson Junior College.

        The 5-11 Salese Blow out of the Dallas are sounds intriguing. Certainly is putting up some big numbers. Looked at a few of her Hudl videos. Uses her left hand well and looks like she can shoot the 3-ball okay as well. Maybe the closest thing to Alex Harden the Shocks have recruited since Alex moved on to the WNBA. Not sure she is quite as athletic as Alex was. Alex was probably the most versatile player/athlete to play women sports at Wichita State. Even if 50% of Alex would be a good player.

        Not sure how many players on the current roster are completing their eligibility. As best as I can tell Trajata Colbert is the only one of the 15 players on that roster whose eligibility expires at the end of this year. Obviously, there will be a few more players who will be moving on one way or the other.

          Five signees, four of whom are why I continue to lose interest in WBB.

          Edit: "whom" not "which" - just gag!
