Courtney Vandersloot sounds too good to be true.

Is she the most highly regarded player to ever join the GU women's team?


Look what they have to say about her in these articles:

People are going to love Courtney. The best comparison I could make is that she'll be the women's team version of Dan Dickau.

Kelly Graves and his staff have had a remarkable string of recruiting success lately.

Freshman redshirt Janelle Bekkering turned down an offer from Stanford to sign with GU.

Transfer Tiffany Shives was a McDonald's All-American who transferred from Michigan State.

Vandersloot, Bekkering and Shives will all make contributions next year.

I can easily see another WCC crown and trip back to the NCAAs for the next 3-4 years. Shives is amazing to watch--shooting, passing, court awareness, toughness. If only Angie Bjorkland had stayed home. Wow, what a thought.

That ASU talent didn't quite match up with Rutgers, they got their cute little butts beat, bad.

She was everything that people expected her to be and much more. What an amazing talent and individual. Very sad to see her career end but I'm grateful that she is and always will be a zag.

I really wish I would have paid more attention to her career. As I watched the first half vs. Standford last night, I was in awe. Like I was watching MJ in his prime...my eyes were locked on her every move and she made all the right moves and everyone around her better (although a lot of missed bunny shots after great passes). Too bad Standford has the bigs down low...

Congrats on a great career, Courtney!!!

I am just kicking myself that I didn't go to many games...just kicking myself....but so glad that I did see some of her games....

she just amazes me....she holds my attention.....I'm sure she is just as amazing in person as she is a basketball player....

when I was young, girls didn't play sports so hard that they actually got "good" at anything....I loved sports....but to go across the road and play with my four brothers and the neighbor boys....not a chance.....

so CV is what I would have loved to have been or what I would love in a dtr....

as it is....she will be a remarkable woman and I am so very glad for her...I don't know if she'll play professionally but she'll be in basketball someway, somehow....playing, coaching, organizing, etc..
