Yes, I think Katie's are primarily due to aggressiveness and a "make the ref make the call" mentality. I'm not sure much can be done about them except sit her from time to time.As for the fouls Katie B and Rose have been accumulating, as PhiloVance pointed out, a lot of these fouls are due to those two being very agressive, especially Katie. As that aggressiveness on defense is a big part of her value to the team, she'll have to learn to curb that when necessary and I think she will. As for Rose, the Gophers really need her on the court this year and she'll have to walk the fine line before aggressiveness and common sense. Like a lot of the things this team has to work on, I'm thinking these things will be corrected as the year progresses.
Rose on the other hand needs to clean up the extra from behind shove and the frustration reach-in. And she can't sub in and pick up a foul 20 seconds later. I think Rose's fouls are fixable; but we've seen no progress this season.
