Cowgirl basketball

The O'Colly projects the 2021-22 starting lineup for the women's basketball team. 

Point Guard: Ja’Mee Asberry 

Asberry will probably be the star of the Cowgirls next year. Her shooting, playmaking and veteran leadership will all be critical to OSU's success.

Shooting Guard: Lauren Fields 

A significant contributor for the Cowgirls, Lauren will bring a balance of scoring and scrappy defense to the table.

Small Forward: Nefertali Notoa

 The guard from Australia got off to a slow start for OSU, but she finished excellently. Notoa adjusted and became an important piece on the perimeter for OSU with her size and shooting. Notoa scored a career-high in points against Stanford in the NCAA Tournament. 

Power Forward: Taylen Collins

With Natasha Mack out of the picture, Collins will be one of the most critical players moving forward for OSU. Her defending and rebounding prowess alone will make her a key part of filling Mack's spot. 

Center: Kassidy DeLapp 

When Mack needed a break, it was a team effort to fill her spot. Both Brittany Reeves and Abbie Winchester got minutes down low, but De Lapp was the first option late in the season. She brings size and scoring ability, as well as the ability to run the occasional fast break.

Key bench contributors:

Guard: Lexy Keys

A true 6th man of the year type player, Keys would be the first off the bench if she does not earn a starting role as a sophomore. She is a knockdown shooter and good ball handler. Look for her to start as matchups permit.
 
Forward: Abbie Winchester
Winchester is a true team player, and can be heard communicating on the court and cheering from the bench. The veteran could take advantage of an extra year of eligibility to carve out some minutes at center with Mack out of the picture.

Forward: Brittany Reeves

The junior college transfer brings toughness and physicality down low for OSU and is a good rebounder.
