A few times a week, Morgan Stroman, one of the senior captains on the women's basketball team will be writing a blog of the team's happenings. She has been an intragal part of the team's transformation into a ACC and nationally recognized program.

Out of high school, Stroman was a three-time South Carolina Gatorade Player of the Year, won four consecutive state championships and was named a McDonald's All-American. After her sophomore season at Miami, Stroman was named All-ACC Third Team and helped guide the Canes to their first ACC Regular Season Championship.

Midway through her junior season, Stroman tore her Achilles' tendon in a game at Virginia. She missed the rest of the season. However, after an intense rehab she was ready for her senior season. She currently leads her team in rebounding, steals, blocks and double-doubles and is second on the squad in scoring.

Below is Morgan's third blog entry for HurricaneSports.com.

The past two games have gone from one extreme to the other. A lot of emotions were up and down, and as a team we had to come together and find what the problem was after our loss to Duke.

In the postgame locker room it was a tense moment. Coach Meier was not happy... more like furious! The loss really made us look at ourselves in the mirror. I think together we responded well to her message, and practice the next day was an eye-opener. We can be great when we want to.

The next game showed how we put all that effort in our workouts. We had Virginia Tech and we won by over 20 points. There was a positive outlook after a game, unlike after Duke. Everyone played a good game, but at the same time there was plenty that needed to be worked on.

Instead of having our weekly off day on Monday we had it Tuesday to better prepare our bodies for Thursday's game vs. Clemson. I'm looking forward to getting back on the court and hopefully bringing back an ACC road win.
