Too bad Chiney didn't have better offensive support on the perimeter to keep defenses from collapsing in on her and double- and triple-teaming her. If she had had reliable support on the perimeter -- good trey shooters and women who could drive and finish or dish to her for layups -- she'd have been even more amazing on O than she was (and she was great) and Stanford would have been in the Final Four with an excellent chance of getting to the championship game. She fully deserved first-team All-American honors.
