  1. Baylor Lost By 2 Without Sims

    You can remove Faris who cannot shoot and sometimes will not shoot. You can remove Hartley who will be red shirted eventually or yo-yo back and forth to the IR. Bone, Fussell, and Hand are jokes on this list. You can remove all but 6. Griner, Diggins, EDD, Ogwumike, Williams, and Thomas.

    1. JR

      Stewart will be one of the top three players in the country by the end of the year. She belongs on the list.

  2. Village Idiot

    Williams is a joke. Uconn’s inexperienced post players, Dolson and Stokes, made Williams a non factor last year and will again this year. EDD will not make it because she doesn’t have a team behind her and she has physical problems.

  3. Baylor 42-1 FKA "Baylor 80-0"

    By years end, KML and Steward bubble to the top. Hartley will also if healthy.
