Opals V Brazil
Did anyone watch the Opals V Brazil game tonight?
If this is what we are dishing up only a short time out from an Olympics, we could be in strife. Our point guard play is a worry. Harrower struggles with quicker guards, despite her class. Richards isn't big enough nor does she have the handles or offence to really dent other teams. Macleod is a battler, but is physically too small and that will be found out in international play. Cambage is horrible at defending drivers from the elbow or perimeter and can't deal with defending screen and rolls. Her body language is still a tremendous concern, she was boxed out late in the game and sling tackled her player intentionally to the floor then soon after ran down the floor asking for the ball and when it didn't come because of pressure, she dropped her shoulders and rolled her eyes, stopped being a target and gave a half hearted attempt to get a rebound on the same play. O'Hea, Snell and Batkovic all belong. Bishop sits in between Cambage's immaturity and Jackson's determination. Hodges and Screen are role players and some would question what they add to the group, taking the place of others who could step in and contribute the same things with a better set of skills.
I do realize there's no Taylor and that Jackson sat out, but our group and the lack of sharpness is a worry if this is what we're dishing out and have our eyes set on a gold medal. Am I over-reacting? Or are others worried as supporters by what they saw tonight?
