I haven’t read the game notes yet but Pascoe starting is not surprising. She is very good and with the graduation of O’Reilly and Campbell’s illnes Lehigh needs a scorer at the #2. We lost much of our depth in the front court due to injury. I can see Burton spelling Mann a lot more this year. Mann spending some time at the #2. Affini spending some time in the front court. The women’s team has 15 players so depth is not quite as bad as for the men.
She told me the illness but my hearing isn’t what it used to be :-). She seemed fine though and I believe she was only expected to miss 1-2 games.
What is the status of Bryce? She isn’t in the team picture and she wasn’t with the team when I met them.
Don’t know for sure but an article last week talked about McCloskey, Eripret and Menendez sustaining early season injuries and would be out indefinitely. The first two have ACL tears and will be out for the year. I think both are anticipating a red shirt. Coaches told me 5 of the 15 players are injured. I believe that would be those three plus Williams and Campbell’s illness. Everone else was in the team picture. I was thinking perhaps she followed Alston’s lead and took the year off from school but of course all of this is conjecture. Problem is 4 of the 5 are bigs.
