Speaking up

Stephanie Carpenter already has 20 3-point baskets this season, something I get into with more detail in this story. Pay attention to her face during a game. I don’t think she ever smiles. And she now shouts at her teammates. This has nothing to do with suddenly becoming a jerk; it’s about being serious and leading your teammates, telling them where they need to be on the court and upbraiding them when they screw up. Carpenter: “It’s not how you’re saying it but what you’re saying.” And she is not above criticizing herself. Carpenter again: “I think I need more work on being patient. I know I miss the post a lot (with passes) when they are open.” She’s come a long way from the shy, quiet freshman she was two years ago.
