    Looking purely at the record, that looks pretty stagnant to me. I liked what I saw when I used to go to the games in previous years, but not convinced her results are making the case. Is anyone more familiar with the team? Do they look like they are about to turn the corner?

    Is this the make or break year for her?

    one year left on her contract.

    they definitely have some young talent. started off looking improved, but relied heavily on 3 of the freshmen and kind of hit a wall the 2nd half of the A10 schedule. took some of the top teams in the conference down to the wire but couldn't finish, but also got worked over by 20-30 a couple times. another 4 freshmen coming in next season with 2 transfers becoming eligible. there's potential but definitely have to start realizing it. need stability too. roster turnover has been a big issue - none of the 2017 senior class were at mason for all 4 years and only 1 senior coming up next year.

    Yeah, I figured it was likely her 5th year. I am guessing, with no facts, that maybe women's coaching doesn't have the same issues as men's that you can't let them coach in their last year of a contract because it would impact recruiting. Or am I wrong, and her entering the 5th year without an extension is likely saying she is likely to be gone after next year?

    Thanks for the insight. A good friend that has been to a lot of women's games once said they always look like that (good in the beginning but once we hit conference play, reality sets in). Is the turnover on the team a result of the coach trying to build a better team for the future, or are players leaving the program early?

    probably a little bit of not as much pressure/interest on the women's side in general, but also in a unique situation at mason where we are trying to scrape every penny together to fund a practice facility. plus she has them involved on campus and in a lot of community service so there's good pub. no idea what it would take for her to get a new contract after next year, but assuming it would have to be better than 6-10 in conference again.

    mostly kids not sticking around. don't have any insight into whether it's just a stretch of bad luck with kids being kids & getting homesick or if there were other issues.
