Maggie will not lose her red shirt based on 22 minutes of playing time
I have read that if a player appears in one game they can no longer redshirt. I know there was a rule in the past that it depended on the number of games and when the games were in the season.

An article from last January

As COVID-19 continues to affect player availability and subsequently leads to game cancellations, the Atlantic 10, eyeing up a season filled with disruptions, has requested a blanket waiver to adjust the redshirting rules, commissioner Bernadette McGlade told The Athletic. Currently, NCAA rules stipulate that if a basketball player appears in a single game, he or she can no longer redshirt.

But the A10 is asking that redshirt players be permitted to serve as essentially emergency fill-ins for up to four games without burning their sit-out year. The request is for the waiver to apply to all Division I basketball — men’s and women’s — and only for this year.

I recall Maggie saying she had some serious problems with her eyesight that prevented her from competing. If so, they could apply for a medical redshirt which allows the athlete to appear in less than 10% of the games.

I am not sure she qualifies for a medical redshirt either. Obviously, there could be an appeal or a change in the rules.

“the NCAA has two requirements for a medical redshirt; the injury must have occurred in the first half of the season, and the athlete must have competed in less than 30 percent of the season. You must provide documentation of the injury, and it must be considered season-ending.”

With another losing season in the record books, and with at least four or five players abandoning ship for reasons unknown, why would any highly rated player be interested in playing for the Gophers? I expect Lindsay will have to settle for the same mediocre transfer talent (Winters being the exception) as in the past.
Not a good sign when several players transfer out from a major conference {Big Ten} with ample media exposure, it opens doubt with higher level recruits questioning our coaching staff...My opinion Lindsay Whalen should be released if unable to maintain a winning record in 2022-2023 season......

It is the sign of the times that many players are leaving teams and even Power conferences. They are looking to increase their playing time and/or playing on contending teams. Recently, Power Conference teams have lost multiple players: Arizona, 4; Kentucky, 3; Colorado, 4; USC, 3, and on and on. The Haves get richer and the Have Nots stay poor. It is an interesting "coincidence" that Jasmine Powell and Rickea Jackson, who are both from Detroit, landed at Tennessee. Jackson was a leading scorer in the SEC at Mississippi State when she transferred. Iowa is losing a couple of reserves because a senior is coming back for a Covid year and they cannot give the reserves scholarships. It is a tough basketball world. There are some players in the transfer portal who have transferred more than once. It used to be difficult to transfer within a conference, which probably was a good idea to prevent tampering and maintain some parity within a conference. I hope after the Covid year(s) that the NCAA develops better regulations for the Transfer Portal.

3rd team all patriot league Taylor Brown has entered the portal for her grad year. She is from lakeville north. Maybe would be a good pick up for some leadership.

Would be watching Rachel Hakes Woodbury,MN/Fairfield U. Heard theres alot of interest on both sides, not saying its a done deal or anything but seems to be trending that way. 6 foot tall old school pg that rarely shoots but when she does she hits about 40% of her 3s.

good find. She would be almost a perfect fit for what I think we need.

I watched some highlights Hakes would be a good pickup.

I also watched and found some more on Brown. I think she would also be a good pickup for a year.


Both players played in the NCAA tournament.

One game in a tournament atmosphere, glad I wasn’t judged that way. Look at the whole body of work before just writing them off. Everybody can have an off day, even the great ones.

Those Texas guards are a problem on defense. Jacy Sheldon is one of the best pgs in the country and she also had a bunch of turnovers against them in the tournament(6 I think). I question whether Browns game translates to this level but I think Hakes would be a good addition. Just my opinion though.

Well, we do have a lot of spots to fill; so we can take chances; but replacing power five players with lower mid-major players generally doesn't work well. And like it or not, they must play Big Ten level competition.

Indiana got Nicole Cardano-Hillary from mid-major George Mason. But Cardono-Hillary was a former A-10 Player of the Year. There was little mystery as to whether she could step into a Big Ten roll.

Naturally I prefer Kevin McGuff's method of replacing Kirsten Bell with Taylor Mikesell.

I think there needs to be reasonable expectations to what the gophers will pick up out of the portal. They also need role players. The team will not have a superstar next season imo, but hopefully they can find leadership.

Nothing guaranteed, but hearing multiple portal players doing visits this weekend. Unsure of who tho but hearing multiple players likely on campus this weekend. Maybe we hear news next week of commits?
Recruiting dead period ended yesterday so it makes perfect sense to bring in visitors this weekend. I live in Woodbury and its making the rounds that Rachel Hakes is gonna be a Gopher, would bet shes one of the 1st signings. Will be interesting who all is coming in this weekend.

I would like this addition. Has improved every year in most stats. Played a lot, didn't score a lot but had almost as many assists as points and didn't turn the ball over too much for a forward with that many minutes. Still mid major so not going to get too excited but need some experience and healthy attitude and her pinned tweet on her twitter account indicates a positive attitude. We need a strong united team that shares the ball well, she brings that as well as experience playing on a winning team.

Size we need and was productive in her very limited minutes. Brother on an NBA team so she would seem to have lot of potential.

I watched many of the ND games on the ACCN and Anaya Peoples would be instant offense plus she rebounds well. I would think she will have multiple options so getting her would be a long shot.

Emma Grothaus (6-3 SR F, Mahtomedi, AAU with North Tartan, Lehigh)
Really developed/improved every year and would be a great addition with 1 year to play really seems to have developed an outside shot as the season went along. Played on an NCAA team.
  • PTS 12.6 REB 9.1 AST 1.5 FG% 44.8
https://www.espn.com/womens-college-basketball/player/_/id/4400201/emma-grothaus
Alexis Pratt (5-5 FR G, Stillwater, AAU with MN Fury, Nebraska Omaha)
Not sure I would see her as a much of a contributor on the court. Not that productive at a low level school, sounds like she is a good defender and very very fast!!!

https://www.presspubs.com/st_croix/...cle_fb1b1ed8-dc2d-11eb-b56f-d3106f2004fc.html

Kennedy Brown (6-6 SO F, Derby, KS, Oregon State)
Would Start immediately. Played quite a bit and was productive but they have a ton of competition in the paint with the leader in the paint being 6'9"o_O
https://osubeavers.com/sports/womens-basketball/roster/kennedy-brown/8570
https://www.oregonlive.com/beavers/...ennedy-brown-enters-ncaa-transfer-portal.html


Tomi Taiwo (5-10 SR G, Carmel, IN, Iowa)
Would be an upgrade over smith. Good shooter but still not super productive but didn't get a ton of minutes either.
https://www.espn.com/womens-college-basketball/player/_/id/4398906/tomi-taiwo

Caitlyn Harper (6-1 RS SO, F, Hartland, WI, California Baptist)
Might be good but not overly impressed with the level of competition had impressive 17.8 pts./game and has averaged 5.9 rebounds. She did perform well against the 2 major conference teams she played against (Oregon State and TCU)
https://www.espn.com/womens-college-basketball/player/_/id/4419354/caitlyn-harper

Sydney Parrish (6-2 SO) G, Fishers, IN, Oregon)
Probably a good addition but her scoring efficiency is a bit concerning with a FG% of 33.6%yet shoots the 3 at 33.3%. Must not be an otherwise very good shooter. Good size but a bit puzzling. I must say, I don't feel I have a good grasp of what to make of FG% in general.
Super highly regarded out of HS.
https://www.espn.com/womens-college-basketball/player/_/id/4433414/sydney-parrish
https://goducks.com/sports/womens-basketball/roster/sydney-parrish/10655

Anaya Peoples (5-10 JR G, Danville, IL Notre Dame)
Her production has dropped every year and her minutes have gone down too. Certainly came highly regarded from HS but seems to have potentially peaked.

https://www.espn.com/womens-college-basketball/player/_/id/4432842/anaya-peoples
https://und.com/roster/267622/

If I was to rank these I would go this way:
Kennedy Brown
Piath Gabriel
Emma Grothaus
Sydney Parrish
Caitlyn Harper
Anaya Peoples
Tomi Taiwo
Alexis Pratt

How would others rank them for fit for UMN?

More on Brown
Kennedy Brown announced her decision to enter the portal over the weekend. Brown came to Oregon State for the 2019-2020 season as a McDonald’s All American and 5 star recruit. Her freshman season was cut short by an ACL tear in February. She missed the entirety of the next season while rehabbing that injury. Her return for the 2021-22 season was highly anticipated, and she did not disappoint. She was third on the team in overall scoring, averaging 7.9 points per game, and second in rebounds, averaging 6.3 per game. She also tied for the team lead in blocks, with 33.
More on Kampschroeder:
Kampschroeder was the first to announce her departure, making her decision known last Wednesday. Kampschroeder was a former McDonald’s All-American before she came to Oregon State, and was ranked the 32nd best player in her class by ESPN. Kampschroeder found an immediate role on the team in her one season, starting 25 games. She finished the season with an average of 5.2 points per game.

Carly and Lindsay are both following Greta Kampschroeder too. I missed iher on the earlier list. Carly is also following Abby Prohaska, one of the Notre Dame transfers.
