Somewhat equated her to Penn's women coach -- not even close -- simply look at the records even with her first two years which were tough, turnaround years. She is underestimated by many.

The records since 2013-14 don't seem too different to me:

Penn: 63-11 Ivy (counting tournament), 3 champs, 111-38 overall
Princeton: 61-13 Ivy, 2 champs, 115-36 overall

After all, it would be hardly be fair to count McLaughlin's first four years, when he was rebuilding a program from ground zero (even lower than what Banghart inherited, not to mention with less resources, academic cachet, etc.) against an already established dynasty. Nevertheless, it only took him one more year to win his first championship than she did. There's also the minor detail that his average season at Holy Family over 11 or 12 years was 29-4. He may not be able to keep up (I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a bit discouraged about this at the moment), but that's not proven yet. And for what it's worth, I don't think she's going anywhere.
