I have a conflict so I won’t be listening. Would appreciate help with his comments if you’re so inclined.
Shoji was on BC’s show this morning. Recapped the weekend
spoke a bit about Magill. Said Rubio had told him ‘you’ll like her, the kid is an athlete.’ Shoji added that she’s a joy to coach, has a lot of range, has to change things when people stack the block against her. Been a great addition to the team. so far low maintenance, adding a laugh, saying no visits to his office yet.
on higgins: said she has the potential to be among UH’s great setters. saw things that led him to believe she does last weekend. The keep will be able to make the difficult sets when you least expect it. Said she’s still young, great attitude and that tells him how much she wants it.
on playing against former players, such as Deitre Collins-Parker, said someone base to lose and he prefers that it not be his team. Said she’ll have a good team this year and wishes her well.
On Taylor: Confirming she won’t play this weekend. hoping to get her in the practice gym doing some reps.
This week: get back in the gym, work on technique, which you can’t do when you’ll playing three days in a row because you’re concentrating on preparing for a specific opponent. what they want is to take the technique from the pracice dim to the playing court. said he has a number of young people who revert back to what they were doing few months ago.
on this being his last year: tired of answering the question. take this season and see where we are in January. No decision any time soon. It’s not a distraction but tired of being asked.
