    I missed this article, but the women's basketball team started practice on Monday. Some good quotes in there on how the team is shaping up.

    BTW, there's been a lot of talk about Reese & Arielle Roberson, but it sounds like Lexy Kresl is one hell of a player too. She was the ESPN RISE player of the week once last season and they had a nice write-up on her.

    Found this from an article eearlier this year. Sounds like Lexi wasn't content with her prodigious scoring. She knew CU was looking for her to be a scorer and she planned to work on that more before she got here this summer.

    TRIFECTABASKETBALL:" What are your goals for the spring and summer to prepare yourself for a successful college career?"

    LK: "This spring and summer I plan to work harder than I ever have before. I know that is the biggest mistake many make after signing to a program, they think they already have it made. I want to be conditioned, both physically and mentally, before going to Colorado and I plan to work on scoring in multiple ways, more effectively, as my main job will be just that. I want to prepare myself so that when I arrive no one questions if I should be there, and I don't want to be surprised by the workload or effort I will have to endure."

    this is the mindset that all athletes at the college level should have. CU could use a lot more of this.

    Wow, Lexi hasn't played a second yet in a CU uniform and she is already one of my favorite Buffs! Great attitude!!!

    I like the scrimmage idea. At least gets everyone out playing against someone besides their teammates. New defensive arrangements, etc.
