If there was anything else going on, I probably would not have started this. I had a couple of hours in the car this morning and the sports talk radio had the Duquesne WBB coach on. He said he recruits appropriate height men from the student body to practice against his women. Looks for 5'8" to 6'2" or 6'3". He has 6 or 7 of these guys and the women practice against them every day. He said the guys get good enough that they win the intramural championship frequently; last year they beat the football team players for the championship.
The first question I thought of: Is this legal in D1 WBB?
The next thing I thought of was how much our WBB team would improve playing against a group of talented men players. I know the women can't compete against really good men, like the ones on our MBB team; but I bet there are a number of very good men in our student body that would really push the ladies to improve their game.
Does anyone know if Coach Brooks does anything like this? Do you have any comments on whether this is a good or bad idea?
