Somehow, this dated Portland Pilots giphy ended up in my in box tonight.  

A bit of goofiness and nostalgia...

I don't know about the money, but sources have indicated that Tess will travel down the coast San Diego this coming school year.

This past season she averaged 19.5 ppg, 3.9 rpg, 4.9 apg. at Santa Clara.

Her Santa Clara teammate, Lara Edmunson, also from Melbourne, is going to play at Villanova during her graduate year there.

I am sure Ms. Heal had many opportunities to play D1 ball. Quite the coup for coach Cindy Fischer and San Diego. Heal's presence has the potential to transform the success of that program.

Bill Carr, Santa Clara  coach now presides over a shell of his former team. He has lost 7 to the portal, signed only 1 so far, and has not signed any freshmen recruits. Among the WCC old guard, they may be the most adversely affected.

Then there is OSU, with 8 skilled players out the door in the portal and only 1 from the portal signed next  year. Hard to overstate the extent of OSU's transformation from an Elite 8 quality team.

WSU star Kiwi guard Charlisse Leger-Walker has committed to UCLA.  Both WCC newcomers appear to be net losers in the portal.

So far in the WCC, ST. Mary's has undergone the most turnover, with 7 lost to the portal and 5 ciming in, together with 5 freshmen. They have recruited well and may be a force in the conference next year.

In the end, it appears Ms. Heal has chosen Stanford as her new school. Out of the WCC, for now, good luck to her.
