Jasmine Powell's 7-5 Tennessee team will receive another visit from the grim reaper when Tennessee faces #2 Stanford. That game was to be a marque matchup. Tennessee fans must be wondering what happened.
Jasmine Powell has not started the last two games at Tennessee. She's played 14-15 minutes.
She transferring to Tennessee from Minnesota where she had a good career, although last season was not as good as the season before.

Kadi Sissoko at USC appears to be performing the best of the players that left, relatively speaking. At Minnesota last season she averaged 10.8 points and 5.7 rebounds per game. At USC Sissoko''s now averaging 16.8 points and 6.4 rebounds per game, for comparison.
Sara Scalia stats have declined since leaving Minnesota to Indiana. I won't say worse, because she's doing well, just different.
Scalia's highest scoring game this year is 17. Scalia this year is averaging 11.8 points per game for Indiana. The most 3-pointers she's made in a game so far this year is 4.
Last season for Minnesota Scalia averaged 17.9 points per game. Scalia scored over 30 points four times, including 37 points and 9 3-pointers against Ohio. Scalia made 111 3-pointers in a season last season.
So Scalia's stats have declined since leaving Minnesota. I won't say she's declined because it's a different situation where the team is doing well.
I think Powell's stock has gone down.
Minnesota is a top, quality basketball program where players will do well.
I don't know the reasons for the departures from Minnesota. I think the Gophers relentlessly hyping the new recruits coming in must have been a factor --
destined to take those starting roles. Scalia also eluded to the culture and wanting to play with a winning program, which she got with veteran Indiana instead of freshman Minnesota.
Anyway, overall leaving Minnesota didn't improve Powell or Scalia's games -- and in fact Minnesota was and is a good place to play basketball.
I love all the video and information we are receiving this year from the Minnesota program.
Minnesota is a top, quality basketball program.
