Wayne Cavadi’s top second-half storylines in DII women’s basketball

This past week, I sat down with Turner Sports own Michella Chester to discuss how I see the second half of the DII women’s basketball season playing out.

Some of the big storylines discussed were:

  • Drury’s outlook after a shocking upset.
  • Lubbock Christian’s record-setting home winning streak.
  • Grand Valley State and Glenville State: Do the two have what it takes?
  • Conference battles to watch.
  • Player of the Year candidates.

Drury was No. 1 since the calendar flipped to 2022, but Fort Hays State grabbed the top spot this past week. The new Power 10 comes out every Wednesday, but here is the latest if you want to catch up:
