Bobcat Women’s Basketball Wrap Up and Look Ahead (Part 3)


This is the third in a series of four posts on the Bobcat women’s basketball team, discussing the past season and a look ahead to next season. Part 1 Season Wrap up, Part 2 Look ahead: Bigs, Part 3 Look Ahead: Wing players and Part 4 Look Ahead: Recruits.

The Wings

Loaded. Let’s just start off with that. Binford will have to replace Phippard, who was a do it all guard for the Cats, and needs to find a back up to spell star point guard Erica Perry, but a lot of talent will be filling the point guard, shooting guard, and small forward positions. Binford plays a most of her players at multiple positions, so it is hard to classified one player a this position or that position. Perry is the only true point guard returning next year, but different players have backed her up at different times this season, including Bussey. Freshman point guard Ally Schmitt has a chance to earn some time as Perry’s back up if not it could be back-up by committee. At the two and three there will be a lot of competition for starting roles and playing time. Big Sky freshman of the year 5-9 Katie Bussey should hold down one starting spots and is on the verge of becoming Rebecca Mercer type player. I do not know if she is as tough as Mercer was but she is capable of putting up points from anywhere on the floor. Bobcat, returnees 6-0 Lyndi Seidensticker, and 5-11 Jenny Heringer will be in the mix for the other starting spot. The other player who will push for significant minutes is the very athletic, 5-8 Jannette Jackson who had to sit out last year after transferring from Missouri State. I could see anyone of these three players starting at one time or another next year. The Bobcats will be so deep at the shooting guard / small forward position, that I could really see prize recruit 5-9 Latisha Adams fending off a possible a redshirt year in 2009-10. Adams is a scoring machine, but also is a very athletic defensive wiz who may have the skills to contribute right away but the Cats have so much depth at that position that Binford could redshirt her. It really is a good sign when, Binford is capable of redshirting her top recruits.
