Jarrod Olson joined the podcast on Tuesday afternoon. The California Baptist women’s basketball head coach is coming off a series sweep over New Mexico State in which Olson picked up his 200th win as the Lancers’ head coach. However, at the time, Olson didn’t even know it would be his 200th win. He is more focused on his Lancers and continuing to focus on the goal of winning the WAC regular season championship.
CBU is well on its way to doing that. The Lancers are 16-0 overall and 8-0 in WAC play. CBU has four players averaging in double figures but on any given night, could have one of perhaps nine players have a big night. Leadership, experience, and an understanding of the culture are what is leading to the success of the 2020-21 season.
Olson also discusses the Lancers’ trip to Edinburg. The CBU women have never won at UTRGV and with travel issues and so forth, Olson knows its not going to be an easy task. Add in the fact that CBU hosts second-place Grand Canyon next weekend, and there is concern of a letdown.
Olson also discusses the mindset behind adding 10th-ranked Oregon to the schedule late in the season. The Lancers will host the Ducks on Feb. 22 in non-conference matchup at the CBU Events Center.
CBU remains at No. 9 in this week’s collegeinsider.com Mid-Major Top-25 poll. A series sweep at UTRGV and then a sweep of GCU the following weekend could seal the regular season championship for the Lancers. And that is the end goal for Olson and his team.
