I think CTT is figuring how to connect with different personalities

Tousaint likes to have fun, make people laugh and can be silly. See her on another day she might be moody and unapproachable. If you think of what you see of CTT in the post conference you see she seems to be similar. When they win she's upbeat, funny and engaging. When they lose sometimes it can be very contentious. Coaches/Supervisors have to be careful with the boundaries of their relationships with their underlings. Sometimes when you joke around too much it can be difficult when you need to hold them accountable. You can get attitude or resistance to your demands. I think in part that's what some see when they think Tousaint is being disrespectful. I see Willoughby is serious. My guess is she likes consistency and wants to see adults and authority figures be just that; somewhat like Coach Frett or the AD Carla Williams.

I think Willoughby is really hurting. I could see she was wincing & limping last night and I saw her sit with the trainer for a moment. Last time I was at the game I saw her with ice-packs on both knees. I hope she's okay.

CTT deserves credit for allowing everyone to feel they have the green light to take shots. Remarkably players are generally taking shots that make sense. Sometimes Tinsley takes a three near half-court and I wonder what in the world. More importantly the players are digging in late and playing defense; they don't quit. As a result each conference game was winnable. Hope they keep improving. I'm happy for the coach and her team.
