For the 2nd straight year, Bella Alarie has been named to the 20 person watch list for the McClain Award, which goes to the nation's top power forward.

In mid-February, the list will be cut down to 10 and then it will go to 5 in March.

Alarie got some support from Carly Grenfell of High Post Hoops.

- Princeton’s Bella Alarie is another one with many ‘first team’ descriptions attached to her name. The junior is a two-time First Team All-Ivy League selection, was tabbed the 2017-18 Ivy League Player of the Year as a sophomore and earned Rookie of the Year honors as a freshman. Standing at 6’4″, Alarie averaged nearly a double-double at 12.4 points her game and 9.4 rebounds last season. The 283 rebounds she pulled down in the 2017-18 campaign rank third most in a single-season in Princeton history. -

Abby Meyers is not listed on the Princeton roster. Does anyone know what the story is?

That's interesting.

She does not appear on the school's directory. It is possible that she has left the school, as well as the team.

If she's no longer with the team, that's a big loss for the Tigers.

The Trentonian reports Alarie will be missing the first part of the season due to a broken right arm she suffered in practice a few weeks ago.

Also, Meyers is having to leave for the year due to a problem with a class from last year.

- Sophomore Abby Meyers had what Banghart termed a "misunderstanding" in her computer science course that violated university policy and will have to take a separation year. -

Thank goodness -- Alarie is starting tonight. Hopefully, Llewellyn is playing tomorrow. Alarie is so good that she changes the make up of the team. Quinnipac is good and has played inghe NCAA tournmament for several consecutive years.

Although rusty and against a good opponent, Alarie finished with 16 points, 19 rebounds, 2 - blocks, steals, assists. Is she free to play at MSG tomorrow as fifth starter?

Sure is something to shoot 14-52 and win by double digits.

Can Banghart loan Alarie to Mitch for a couple of games?

I'd like to see Banghart and Mitch switch teams.

Since her return from injury, Bella is now 3 for 3 as to Player of the Week award after winning 6 times last year. She is a significantly better player than last year when she was POY as a sophomore. Averaging 20/10 with 5 blocks per game and 3 assists. Dominant and special player.

Tigers return a starter and top reserve who have been out with injuries other than playing one game.

Unfortunate that they did not have all hands on deck when playing top 25 teams earlier in the year but Harvard men knows what it feels like regarding injuries.

Could be legitimate top 25 team next year.
