Lady Frog Practice Report #5
Oct. 17, 2006
The following photo was taken during a photo shoot last week of the 2006-07 TCU women's basketball team. Wallpaper of this image is coming later this week so please make sure to check back soon!
The TCU Lady Frogs participated in their first full scrimmage Tuesday against the Frog Squad (an all-male practice team) with game officials, the shot clock and scoreboard in full effect. The practice session seemed a little more real since the women wore their new 2006-07 purple uniforms due to media and photography requests.
The Frogs started scrimmage action at approximately 4:15 p.m. and concluded over an hour later.
"The guys were more physical and quicker than our team today," he said. "We weren't quite ready for that. I have a couple concerns about our team. The first thing is our passing has got to become more effective. We also need to take better shots and our consistency level needs to improve. All teams go through these kinds of things this early in the season and I'm curious to see how our players respond to advertisty."
"I thought Adrianne created some good shots off the dribble and she has a strong ability to create her own shot. Helen was more aggressive today, so that was a positive."
The eighth-year women's basketball boss said he is still waiting for the post players to arrive in scrimmages.
"I would really like our post players to take what they've learned in drills and apply those skills to scrimmages. They do a great job in breakdown drills but they have to translate those things to scrimmages. Their attentiveness and ability to absorb information given to them and then take that to game-type situations is what it takes to be successful at the college level."
"Don't leave any regrets on the floor." - TCU associate head coach Larry Tidwell said to the players at the conclusion of practice.
TCU players will take a physical day away from basketball Wednesday but will study film . . . The Frogs are 18 days away from their exhibition home opener against Lake Truck Lines (WNBA) . . . The team's first game is against defending national champion Maryland.
