Kate Andersen wrote:“It was kind of sad because we didn’t realize that our season was over,” senior Kate Andersen said. “I didn’t realize that playing USD was our last game and I didn’t realize that playing USD was my last game as a senior, like, the very last game I was going to play in that uniform.”

Not a starter, but a fan favorite, a great contributor and part of the glue that holds the team together is Jayce (JC) Gorzeman from Las Cruces.

This article about the former all-state player and state of New Mexico leading scorer from the Las Cruces Sun includes a video of some of her tournament highlights.

Gorzeman has quick hands and feet, gave multiple guards trouble bringing up the ball.

Losing Kate Anderson will be tough.

But there is reason to be optimistic.

Go Pilots.

Since I did not follow the women closely most of the year, DD please tell us more about the players who were lost for the season with injuries. Are full recoveries expected? I believe one was a starter until she got hurt?

The team’s star players are pretty well known, but there were a number of unsung heroes (heroines?) this season, namely freshman Keeley Frawley, and juniors Jayce Gorzeman and Lauren Walker.

The starter that went down with a torn knee at Air Force was sophomore Liana Kaitu’u, but it was the emergence of Walker with backup from Frawley and Gorzeman that made all the difference in the season, IMO, as they collectively filled the position left open when Kaitu’u was injured.

Walker is tall, 6-5, but that’s all she was before being thrown into the mix as a starter and developing with each practice and game to provide a high and low post presence with Alex Fowler.

Kaitu’u qualifies for a medical redshirt and will return as a sophomore next season along with fellow injured players, junior transfer Rose Pflug and junior Josie Matz, both of whom also qualify for medical hardship waivers. Kaitu’u and Pflug will both vie for starting spots next season, but regardless of who starts, they both should see playing time on a roster that, on paper, looks loaded for next season…barring even more injuries.

The spark of the team, Haylee Andrews, will probably always have to fight a chronic bad ankle that occasionally limited her minutes all season.  She sustained a broken rib at Fresno St. and exacerbated the injury at Air Force when she again dove on a ball, but she still played over 30 minutes per game.  And Alex Fowler fought off freshman fatigue and illness all season to also average over 30 minutes per game while leading the WCC in scoring.

The one injured player who could not return, and eventually had to leave the team, is junior Erika Kankfelt from Finland.  Erika sat behind the bench and rooted on her friends and former teammates all season, but just had so many bad luck injuries over three seasons that her basketball career was sadly over this past December. Fortunately, UP will continue to pay for her education, but her scholarship will not count against the athletic department’s budgeted allocation.

Too many injuries, but as Haylee said, “It’s been next man up all season and we still won the Tournament Championship.”

Stuck inside and in need of something to keep you jumping up and down and cheering for the rest of the year?

Well, here's the answer to your need, and your chance to keep going down memory lane too.
