She ain't Coates though. She is small for a post player and will need her as a 5 at some times.

Kind of like being a Dolphins fan and complaining about potential Indian burial grounds under the stadium. Guess that wasn't hurting the fins too much last season. Will always be people who use that as a scapegoat to make themselves feel better or worse.

Default Re: Alaina Coates

In the six games since Alaina was injured, we have been outrebounded 3 out of those six. I worry about this one fact in the tournament, since many of the teams we face are good offensive teams. Kiki is a good rebounder, but not quite that of Coates.

I went to the last home games just to watch her play in her final games.

This sucks, but it's better to be healthy for the draft.

Dawn is a good enough coach to go to a small-ball Plan B game plan. I have a vision of Bianca kicking azz from the perimeter.

We are a much different team without Alaina, but still one who can win a national championship. We won't have much depth in the front court and we will have to play 4 guards at times, but I think we can still win it all as the team will rally around Alaina.

If Wilson doesn't get worn down, stays out foul trouble against our toughest opponents, Someone besides Aja steps up and scores a lot of points every game than we have shot. We need to score more points because with Coates our defense and rebounding is not as good. We need our guard crashing the glass. Everyone has to crash glass.

This will be good for most of our games with our speed, but if and when we meet up with good rebounding teams we will miss her. KD will be the key.

Staley is getting some critcism for 1. Playing Coates vs Kentucky. 2. Announcing that Coates won't be in the tournament the day after they seeding happened.

1. Coates was cleared to play by the team doctors, if there is anyone that should be critcized it should be them.

2. It shouldn't effect our seeding one way our the other if one of our players can play or not. It's our body of work we have already done in the season that determines our rank.

Correct. The NCAA really does not take injuries into account, nor should they. The seedings are based on the entire season, although they can factor in late season swoons, after the injury. But we won without Coates too.

In the words of the great Dabo Swinney, "next (wo)man up"!

Has anyone heard any updates on Coates? I know they said that she was out for the tournament, but I'm shocked that she's not on the bench or in the stands. I have a hard time believing it's because of her injury. I haven't even seen her say much on twitter to congratulate the team or wish them well in the final four.

I did not see Alaina on the bench (like she was during the SEC tournament when she was injured and not playing). I really think it is strange that she is a Senior and leader for the past two years on the team, and she has not been with the team during the NCAAs. Our transfer from Kentucky (who is not eligible until next year) has been on the bench with the team during the tournament, but no Alaina? I have a strange feeling that there is a story here. I hope there is not a falling out by Alaina, as I have always pulled for her.
