Good candidate for conference coach of the year.

McLaughlin has brought in only one class, and it was a small class because of top-heavy scholarship numbers. This turnaround is mostly coaching and bodes well for the future when McLaughlin has brought in more classes.


Thanks for the response and the insight. *

The schemes both offensively and defensively are light years different and better than a few years ago. The decision making and execution improvements reflect the coaching as well.

I also see fewer silly errors and maybe better conditioning. I don't think Debbie Brown was a bad coach, I just think we now have one of the best.


I do think the addition of Yeadon and Holt have been key.

Holt coming in as a transfer from Loyola I am sure is the coaches' doing as well as adding Yeadon from Washington State. She isn't a typical ND Vball player from the past and she now starts as a Freshman is getting lots of minutes, sometimes not subbing out at all during sets.


ND wins Sunday -- 3-0 over Virginia Tech
