PORTLAND, OR – MARCH 31: Mississippi State Bulldogs center Teaira McCowan (15) guards Oregon Ducks guard Maite Cazorla (5) during the NCAA Division I Women’s Championship Elite Eight round basketball game between the Oregon Ducks and Mississippi State Bulldogs on March 31, 2019 at Moda Center in Portland, Oregon.

Here’s Muffet McGraw on Marina Mabrey at the next level: ” She’s somebody that can pass. She can certainly score. She has the three-point record at Notre Dame. She’s smart, feisty. As a coach, you love to coach a player like Marina because she is such a competitor. She really never quits. She inspires the rest of her team to do the same.” This was prior to the championship game, when I then saw her lift the play and energy level of her teammates in the second, third and fourth quarters, Mabrey the igniter each time. It’s a different game, to be sure, but it was a very Tamika Catchings effect she had on her teammates, which I don’t say lightly. Her defense is criminally underrated, too. All Marina Mabrey needs is a chance, because once she gets out on the floor, no coach is going to want to pull her off.
