Let's Finish 2018 on a High Note

CSUN is coming to town on the 29th. Hopefully the Stanford WBB team will be refreshed after a Christmas break. To me they looked tired after finals, Baylor, long flights, and Tennessee in one week. Who could blame them. They showed some grit and determination to pull out a lackluster win in Buffalo after one of the biggest weeks of the year.

The Matadors are led by a 6'-4" post player built big and athletic. Channon Fluker is averaging seventeen points and twelve rebounds per game. CSUN has played three PAC12 schools this season and beat WSU, but lost to Cal and USC by 25 and 15 respectively.  

Seems like a great way to get ready for the conference season, which is right around the corner. Someone told me Maya is putting up 100 jump hooks with each hand every day. It that's true, look for her to enter conference play as a whole new kind of weapon. That left-handed hook over Lauren Cox in the Baylor game seemed a clear hint of what's to come as she gains more and more confidence.
