Not being able to keep up with FGCU is frustrating. Losing one or more of our BEST players every year is way more frustrating. I've talked at length about my feeling that the vast majority of transfers fall in the win-win category. That is not the case with Emily or with Keyen Green last year. They are big losses for our program. Both were starters with every opportunity to use and showcase their skills at Liberty. Why did they choose not to?
Perhaps one reason could be the frustration of not really having a chance to get to the NCAA tournament as a member of the ASUN as long as FGCU continues to be as dominant as they have been. Beyond that, I have to wonder if there is something lacking in the team culture which would cause such valuable players to want to leave.
