Locked on Women’s Basketball: Maddy Siegrist is unguardable, Aneesah Morrow is elite: Big East chat
Howard and Tee talk all things Big East Conference
It’s time for another episode of the Locked on Women’s Basketball podcast. This episode features host Howard Megdal catching up with The Next’s Big East correspondent Tee Baker to talk all things Big East Conference. Maddy Siegrist of Villanova is a nesting doll of great stats, DePaul’s Aneesah Morrow looks like she’s ready for a monster sophomore year.
Tee talks about the Big East Conference and where it stands:
“So you know, I think that there’s always this is the Big East, the Power Six Conference discussion and I think, in particular with women’s basketball, I mean, you have to look at the dominance of the conference over time. I think when we go back to the old days of the Big East, right, you had Connecticut women’s basketball, which of course, is a dynasty. But you also had Notre Dame and you also had Louisville. You have these powerhouses. And I think all these discussions with conference realignment has created a very different flavor to the Big East these days.”
Tee talks about whether Creighton has what it takes to challenge UConn this year:
“I think it’s a good question. I think we’re yet to see how all the pieces for UConn play out on the court. I think what Creighton has going for them is that they have so many returning players from last year. They have a chemistry that is palpable when you watch them play and had the opportunity to see them play a few times in person last year and how they communicate on the floor the way that they want this. I had the opportunity to speak to Lauren Jensen at Media Day and some others from the Creighton team. And they have in their mind achieving what they achieved last year, right? They want to make it to the Elite Eight and continue putting themselves on that national map.”
